Abandoned Sky Scraper

Abandoned Sky Scraper

I happened upon this building during a near-by adventure and noticed it was abandoned. Later, when driving by I noticed hand-styles in the windows. IT HAD TO BE DONE. Unfortunately it was locked super-tight when we arrived to check it out. I don’t like breaking and entering, so this one had to wait. Finally, I caught word that it was wide open so I could shoot what was inside. It was really refreshing to do an awesome building like this. Though my friends think it’s debatable, I think this would count as a sky scraper, making this the tallest proper building I’ve explored. (Though the Silos may have been taller, they weren’t exactly a normal building).

The graffiti on the roof was amazing, and a really nice treat for climbing 12 floors.

The scary part was when I noticed a bunch of oddly placed steal i-beams and realized what they were for. One of the load baring columns for the building was damanged and not actually holding the building together. A make-shift hack was applied like a band-aid. History says the building suffered damage in an earthquake. Luckily there were none on the day I visited.

this spot looks amazing! I\'m into urbex and am also a graffiti artist from the south bay area. Could you tell me where this spot is? I would definitely be down to give you some good spots in the bay area in exchange for this one, and of course id keep the spot a secret.
