The highest Pink Oak around here


The Eugenia Place, I think is one of the most unusual high rise I have ever seen. 
This Vancouver's well-heeled West End is more than and attractive landmark that sits on English Bay. The building is surrounded by manicured grounds and a sweeping 360-degree view. The most eye-catching feature of the landscape, however, isn't actually on the "land" at all - it is a 37-foot-high pin oak sprouting from the building's roof, more than 200 feet from the ground.

Thought it appears very lonely at the top, at least from the perspective of its peers along Beach Avenue, the pink oak is well known and liked in the neighborhood.
I love it , don't you?...

The photo came out well Barb. I particularly like the sky.

I'll save my comments on the Eugenia for another time and place.

Lovely contrast there.

The tree does seem lonely there at the top of the building, but as it seems to be so loved...maybe it's not so lonely after all. I'm glad you visited my blog as I then clicked on yours. Your photos are beautiful. My brother-in-law recently visited your city and came back with stories of your beautiful city.

Are visitors allowed to the tree?

Greetings from Juneau, Alaska!
It's definitely a unique building. I wonder what it looks like up on top. Would they let you up there?
