Ferry Building



The San Francisco Ferry Building is a landmark along the Embarcadero.  There is a Marketplace on the ground level and office spaces on upper levels. Above the building is a 245-foot tall clock tower with four clock dials of 22-foot diameter. It is the largest wind-up, mechanical dial clock in the world, although the hands are now powered by electric motors. There is a also heritage street car station located on the pedestrian plaza in front of the building.

Circular Tower at Australia Square



The Australia Square Tower Building is a retail and office complex located at 264 Bond Street, Sydney. The name “Australia Square” is a little confusing as the Tower Building is circular in shape. The structure is approximately 170m tall and has an observation deck on the 48th floor. It was Sydney’s tallest light weight concrete building in 1967.
