Huge announcement the Pantheon of Rome is for sale and for a limited time only. What is most interesting about this building is that it is was is known for its belief of the gods of Rome and Greece. The best part of this building is that is can be used as a museum. It can be best used to tour people inside of it as it creates a wonder on peoples view to see building of that design. Due to the huge middle section that is open to bring in the light. The walls are unique and kept well in tact. Corinthian style on top of the walls create a culture that can never be forgotten.

Assignment 1 (Parthenon)


Oh Parthenon, such a beauty you are. The way you are build from the ground up catches every men’s eyes. One cannot began to tell your faults, for you were build not for mere humans but for Athena. We all truly know denying your beauty would be out of ignorance and spit. Many are jealous of you, having Athena by your side after all is any man’s dreams and desire. I know that others envy and jealousy has caused you much pain and damage. They have stripped you from your riches, robbed you of what has held you standing up for many years and left you do be broken. But yet you still manage to stand. When looking at it they have not stripped you of nothing important. They have just began to prove how strong and breath taken you truly are. You still manage to grab many peoples heart, inspiring them and giving them the opportunity to travel through times. Resting at the top of the city since 447 BC and still to this day out standing your foes. It’s a pleasure getting to learn about you.

The First building is The French Building located in Midtown Manhattan New York. It was first built in 1927 before the Great Depression. It is used primarily as an office building and also houses classrooms of Pace University. Ā The building is one of the better known projects of theĀ real estate developer Fredrick Fillmore French. The architects that designed this structure were H. Douglas IvesĀ and Sloan & Robertson. It was the tallest building on Fifth Avenue when completed, by the 1990s it underwent a complete restoration, subsequently earning the Building Owners and Managers AssociationĀ 1994/1995 Historic Building of the Year Award.Ā TheĀ National Register of Historic placesĀ listed the building in January 2004. At the top of the building it has a striking art deco that can easily attract someoneā€™s eyes.

The second building is called the Safra National Bank Tower located in New York. It was in built in 1990 standing at 23 stories tall. It used as an office space while CompStak has 11 lease comps for this property, dating from 2007 to 2017. Safra National Bank of New York is affiliated withĀ Banco Safra S.A., one of the largest private banks inĀ BrazilĀ Ā  with approximately 100 branches throughout the world. The bank has a worldwide network of resources and products made available by the Safra Group of banks and financial institutions.

These two structures are similar in a way with the use of the building. They both are an office space, and as well as the height of each building. One thing that contrast between the two is they were built between two different time periods of the same century. The first building was built before the Great Depression and the second building was built in the late 20th century or as you can say the modern era of buildings.
