Sort Of A Skyline

STL Skyline 2014-11-15 3

We don't have a stunning urban skyline. The two tallest buildings downtown are about the height of the Arch. It goes down from there. This group of contrasting buildings is a bit north of the Arch. A CDP colleague once lived in part of the development on the left. The asterisk on the building on the right marks my office window.

The second photo is a 90 degree turn to the right. The green glass of the luxury Four Seasons Hotel is topped with a strange brick cockscomb. It looks pretty awful up close but it's covered with LEDs that produce any pattern the owners want (like this). In this shot it is imitating a fire.

Indeed not a very exciting skyline with exception of the arch of course. At least you have a corner view.

Does it change from time to time? Different designs? Better look in darkness?

It's not so bad Bob, skyscrapers can be pretty ugly too :) love that there's a bit of a light show going on ON The Four Seasons :)

Is that building on the left the Mansion House building (or whatever they're calling it now)?

Quite an interesting effect in that building, Bob.

St. Louis looked pretty grown-up to me on the few times I have been there. It is amazing what can be done with LED now. My company's building in Columbus added LED around the top, and it could change colors or do running patterns. Not an essential thing, but kind of nice.
