For Birminghamians, the City Federal Building is a well known landmark. Built in 1913, the former Jefferson County Savings and Loan building was the tallest in the southeast. It was renamed the City Federal in 1963. This 27 story terra cotta faced building remains the tallest neoclassical skyscraper in the south. Today, it has been preserved and condominiums are for sale right here.
The top image is very fine, Virginia. «Louis» really appreciates geometrical compositions like this.
Love the warmth of the evening lights and contrasts. Cool evening shot!

What a lure to throw out! Love everything about these 2 photos. Wouldn't it be so cool to live in it?
But there are no balconies! No access to the outside. I would suffocate.
That is an amazingly love price. The Australian dollar is about 0.89c US. But still, a two bedroom unit in the heart of Sydney would cost about &800,00. Bit of a difference. But why?
Two great shots and an amazing price. Very tempting.
Love the light!
If a city has to have skyscrapers, then this is what I would recommend. Beautiful building.
I love the angle of the first photo. Excellent shot!
Quite a nice building. But don't make me live up there :)
I rather like these. Go in and grab us a picture of the penthouse, ok?
The first shot is absolutely brilliant! Awesome light and colours!
Also love the previous moon and the 'From the balcony' shots. Great work, V.!
Wow, c'est beau !
I'm happy to learn that B'ham cares enough to preserve this building. We've got one of these outside my office window, the Wainwright Building from 1890, designed by Louis Sullivan. The mix of history and architecture enriches a city.
By the way, I am not a weirdo magnet. I just like interesting people and am more forward than some in going out to meet them.
Say what you will Bob, they come out of the woodwork for you my friend! :) And of course, who would pass up the opportunity to photograph them! More ! More!
I love the colors on this one.
What a gorgeous building!
Thank you everyone. This is indeed a Birmingham landmark that we all treasure. I took these Sunday at sunset in very cold, windy conditions with numb fingers. Thank goodness when I downloaded the photos they warmed me right up!!!
The lighting sure has eye appeal!
How did you get such a wonderful photo of the top? I'd have had a crick in my neck I think.

Nice, V, really nice. I'm all aglow just looking at it.
