In England planners are considering a redevelopment plan to transform an empty 1970s office block into the mirror image of a 19th century upstate New York skyscraper. Originally Reading’s Thames Tower (1974) was supposed to be demolished, but that proved too dangerous as it is located right next to a busy train station. Instead four floors will be added as the building gets a striking new terra cotta facade to resemble Louis Sullivan’s Guaranty Building (1896) in Buffalo, New York. Both properties are about the same size and have a similar footprint.
