It's time to start introducing the landmark buildings. First up the ABA Building. The building, originally constructed for the Northeastern Steel Company in 1964, now houses the offices of the Allied Bank America Corporation. The 25-story ABA Building, with the height of 113 m / 371 ft, became the second tallest building in Bourne when completed. Today it is the sixth tallest.
Here's the re-textured version:
From the street level, looking west on West Jefferson Street on a summer evening:
Here's another building: the New York Building. It was built for the New York Mutual insurance company in 1930. They still have their Bourne HQ in the building, but most of the building is rented out. The New York Building is 127 m / 417 ft tall and has 34 stories. It was the tallest building in Bourne from 1930 to 1975. Today it is the fourth tallest.
City Hall Park after midnight. Looking towards the City Hall and the New York Building. Somebody's working really late up on the 32nd floor.
The re-textured version:
A view from an office at the 20th floor of the New York Building. Looking southwest.
Here's couple of older, pre-re-texturing street scenes:
"The southeast corner of West Madison and Monroe streets is possibly the most underdeveloped lot in downtown Bourne. Currently a three-story building from the early 60’s is located there. It is owned by the VanAlen Banking Corporation and they have a bank branch at the first floor. The other two floors are currently vacant. Before the depression VanAlen was looking to replace the building with newer and bigger version – possibly a residential building as the lot is a bit small for an efficient office building – but those plans are now on hold."
That was the situation in June 2009. The building was torn down in the summer of 2012.
"Here's a view looking northwest on West Jackson Street. The building with the twin towers is the Cambridge Place and the renassaince revival styled building behing it is the Oxford House."
