Well, I guess this one's not getting built (and a Revit file sample)

Here's a pretty cool looking building. Just went into foreclosure. One of my star Revit techs turned it into a Revit model in about 36 minutes. It's not perfect, but may be fun for you to play with.

Notice how it fits in perfectly with the surrounding buildings. Definitely would not get the LEED SS1 & SS2 credits, don't you think? That's site selection and development density/community connectivity for you non LEED AP readers.

A beacon of light in a community that really needs it. Be sure to ignore articles like this:

Newborn sea turtles rescued in Lauderdale

Sun Sentinel

Almost 100 loggerhead sea turtles became disoriented by lights Tuesday morning and wandered along the beach instead of heading into the ocean after they hatched in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, officials said.

Anyway, enough of that environmental crap that no one cares about, here's a link to download and play with our version of the building in a .rvt file. I'm also trying an experiment with a great product called SugarSync.com that automatically backs up your files online. Yes, it's a pain with such large Revit files, but they also have an FTP feature now. Basically, you save a file on your computer and it automatically backs it up and makes itself available as an FTP file. You can require a password, and you can allow others to just view or edit files.

So, let's summarize. Recession Bad. Building 43 story building on the ocean Bad. Having buildings create light pollution that harms sea turtles Bad. Revit sample file Good. SugarSync.com Great.

Hope everyone has a great 4th. I celebrate the 3rd, er, 3d. Independence from CAD day.
