This building exemplifies everything I like in a scraper.....tall, elegant, tall, well designed, tall, futuristic looking, tall, and to top if off....tall.

the only negative.......it's not in my town.

It can't rust, that's concrete you're looking at. It's coloring from the setting(or rising) sun.
