Goodbye BMA

It's been about ten years since I was first hired to photograph BMA Tower for a National Register of Historic Places nomination. Since then I've photographed the building for pre and post-rehab documentation for historic tax credits as often as several times each year. Last Monday, however, was my final trip to BMA, now One Park Place. A lot has changed with the building in that time, but it's still my favorite job and has produced some of my best work. I'm sad to be finished with it.

Here are a few shots done for the nomination ten years ago which are not on my main website.

Here's how it looks today:

The view from the 19th floor is spectacular, and can be yours for just under $1 million!

So long BMA.
