City Building, Asheville

City Building, AshevilleThe City Building in Asheville was designed by Douglas Ellington in the mid-1920s.

It is constructed from pick marble and brick while the tower on top features blue, yellow and green terracotta tiles.

Ellington also designed a matching County Building but was not given the commission to complete the project. In a way it is a shame but maybe two such buildings would be too much ... nah ... I didn't think anyone would buy that one.
