Colcord Building


Colcord Building, originally uploaded by jasonbondy.

Built in 1909 by Charles F. Colcord who wanted a building that could withstand a disaster like the San Francisco quake and fire of 1906. The building was constructed of steel and reinforced concrete. The original plans by architect William Wells show a potential west wing that was never constructed. The building is located at 15 North Robinson, and is still used as an office building.
