The 927 Building

I left the convention center in downtown Jacksonville, FL as the sun was setting.  I was so excited seeing the gorgeous clouds behinds the palm tree fronds, that I nearly missed the newly painted building just down the street. 

The last time I saw this building it was just a boring beige.  Now it's a riot of color with blues and oranges.  I adore the arches above the windows - it really turns an average three story building into something special.

I went to and I'm really impressed with the way the interior was renovated.  I bet it's a great place to have a party or corporate event.  The metal work is fabulous, don't you think?  It really is great branding. 

Here's the hanging sign out front of the building.  I like that the numbers are cut out of the metal, so depending on where you are standing, the numbers can take on a variety of different colors or textures. 

In case you didn't see the 927 building, you obviously didn't see the awnings, the front door, the side of the building or the hanging sign!  I understand, it's the name of their company, too, but it does seem a bit excessive. 

I used this as my photo of the day (POTD - Viking) on Friday.  I wanted to make sure that I used it with a picture of the building so it could be seen in context.

927 looks fabulous. I love it when they're bold with building colors. Long ago, we used to have this building in our locality that was colored yellow and orange. They had a water tank shaped like a boat, perched at the top of the building, which was colored bright blues. :D Became the local landmark.

Loved the pictures, Kristin!

Love the building and I kinda like that they put the number all over the place.

Are the palms keeping up with their Brazilians?
