The downtown looks beautiful but the city overall lacks identity. It isn't known for beauty like RJ or for business like Sao Paolo or government like Brasilia or parties like Salvador. It needs to get an identity or it will always be a typical Brasilian city and there are hundreds of those. In other words, it isn't unique but charming nonetheless.

I live in POA and i can tell you, the downtown is the worst part of the city and is ugly, the others parts of the city are much more beautiful. Porto Alegre isn't a touristic city, is a business city like Sampa...

The state of Rio Grande do Sul(where stay Porto Alegre) is much different than others parts of Brazil. Here is cold and the culture is much diffent...

Very beautiful, it's the first time that I see Porto Alegre this way, I though that it was an ugly grey city like São Paulo but I was wrong. Sometimes it remember me Californian cities. This red cars are taxis? if yes, it's curious. In Brazil, the colors of taxicabs are very changeable in each part of the country, in Curitiba they're orange.

82.


83.


84.


85.


86.


87. Descendo por uma rua transversal a Casemiro


88.


89.


90.


91.


92.


93.


94.Novamente na Casemiro de Abreu


95.


96. Chegando na Esquina das ruas Casemiro de Abreu e Lucas de Oliveira, onde encontraremos alguns prédios muito bons, incluindo o Hotel Blue Tree Towers Porto Alegre


97. Já na Lucas de Oliveira, que é a divisa entre os bairros Bela Vista e Rio Branco (onde estou morando há pouco mais de 1 mês)


98. Aqui uma foto inusitada: uma pessoa limpando o edifício ... rapel ???


99.


100.


101.


102.


103.


104.


105.


106. Prédio com revestimento em mármore


107. BLUE TREE TOWERS PORTO ALEGRE, um 4 estrelas com um interessante restaurante japonês no térreo


108.


109.


110.


111.


112.


113.


114.


115. MAISON TED LAPIDUS - me parece que com um apartamento por andar incluindo uma piscina por andar.
Este prédio foi inaugurado há uns 10 anos mais ou menos, tendo a presença na inauguração do famoso estilista francês.
Em Porto Alegre temos também a MAISON PACO RABANE, que retratarei em breve (fica no Bairro Boa Vista)


116. Um detalhe do Ted Lapidus


117. A entrada do prédio


118. Aqui um lugar que achei muito bonito: uma casa antiga preservada pela construtora do prédio que se localiza junto dela.
Uma solução que deveria ser adotada mais vezes. Há outros casos desses no Bairro Moinhos de Vento.


119


120.


121.


122. Um lançamento recente, que acaba de ficar pronto


123. Ele de novo



Aguardem que em breve farei outra caminhada mais pro lado da Avenida Nilo Peçanha, e clicarei outros belos prédios na região (ainda bairro Bela Vista).
Será a parte 3 do thread.


Espero que tenham gostado do bairro e das fotos.

OK! I am going to make a public announcement here. Everyone PLEASE LIMIT the number of
these old threads you bump up. Mares de Morros_XXI, you have bumped up way too many at a time. This makes a great deal of work for moderators.

I think since 50s Hirakatashi at least. If you see pictures that age you can see a building spreads in the most of the brazilian cities.
