Literally, There’s a Shiny New Building at 10th & Buttonwood – OCF Realty

View from the south

If you’re traveling through or near Callowhill, there’s a new building under construction that’s quite eye catching. Sure, any construction in any part of town makes our radar bleep, but this particular project would draw the attention of even the most oblivious phone gazer due to one very specific characteristic- its sheathing.
