That's the James Monroe Building, a state office building. At 450' feet tall, it's the tallest tower in Richmond.

I just realized why the quality of those last 2 pics I posted was sooo bad. I had my cell phone camera set at 0.3MP instead of 3MP. :lol:

You pass within feet of it when traveling through on I-95... It was actually designed to have a twin tower built next to it sharing the same parking deck... but it was never built. If you do a bing.com bird's eye view, you can see the capped foundation for the never built twin. It would be neat to see another tower go there one day, though I'd prefer a drastically different design.

Here's a neat place to see old photos of Richmond

Dementi Studio

On the left hand side, click Historical, then Top 50. Fascinating photos of Broad Street in the 1930's - it could easily pass for NYC.

One of my faves is the one with the banner "Make Richmond the City Beautiful; Clean up Paint up Week"
Awesome streetscape...
Why don't we start to have a Clean-up Paint-up Week again?

Nice find!

I love the Clean Up-Paint Up pic, especially because of the streetcars.

Here's a neat album someone posted at urbanplanet.

Richmond, Virginia | Richmond Virginia, Virginia State Capitol, VCU, Carytown | Swan Vacula (http://www.swanv.com/files/8f722538b94780d4d972b445e4f65807-17.html - broken link)

Great photos and a great write-up on our city.

There are some gorgeous photographs in this thread! Does anyone know where I could get a good photo of Richmond City for my business website? I would, of course, give credit to the person who took it. I have looked and can't find anything.

Thanks!
