Wells Street Tower Is Right On

Today's apartment block is simple yet unique. Completed in 2002, the Wells Street Tower has 34 stories and stands 388 feet tall (118 m). While the green glass gives the building a modern feel, it's the right triangle of a roof that makes it memorable. And what artistic expression does this interesting pyramid achieve? Well, actually, it's a bit more practical than that. The right triangle covers up the mechanical elements at one end of the building.
