Getting to Know Seattle: Strange Sights

We had a building just exactly like this in Rochester, NY, and I always thought that one looked a little precariously balanced too.

Someone is excavating the entire shopping plaza around this office building in downtown Seattle, while leaving the building untouched and presumably as stable as ever. I think it looks as if a good shove, or earthquakey-shake of the ground would send it toppling over, but I know zero about construction, and apparently that’s the appearance but not the actual case.

  1. Just heard that Xerox has now merged with a Japanese company. Also did not know that Ursula Burns is no longer CEO. So awful to see the “giants” of Rochester business falling.
