Woolworth Mansion in the Market for a Heart-Stopping $90 Million - 03/29/11 06:59 AM
Back in 1911, the several-times-multimillionaire Frank Winfield Woolworth of the five-and-dime store fame took it into his head to build massive residential units for each of his three daughters. The architect commissioned for this mammoth project was C.P.H. Gilbert who, needless to say, did complete justice to it won Mr. Woolworth’s appreciation, and earned every single penny that came his way. Of the three mansions, the one in the middle belonged to Helena Woolworth. It was designed after the style of a French Gothic house, complete with a limestone façade, 14-foot tall gilded ceilings in the parlor, ballroom-sized staircase, a dining (7 comments)

Jennifer Aniston lists her Beverly Hills Home for $42,000,000... Finally! - 03/14/11 06:57 AM
It’s finally out...all those hush-hush whispers and talking in barely-audible decibels – it’s true – Jennifer Aniston has listed her 10,000 square feet home in Beverly Hills at a jaw-dropping price of $42,000,000. I have to say, that is a lot of zeros there! The woman we will forever remember as Rachel Greene from the popular sitcom Friends bought this property in 2006 following her divorce from Brad Pitt for $13.5 million. A year ago, Jennifer Aniston declared her fondness for this home in the cover story of Architectural Digest. "I can't tell you specifically the feeling I had when I (6 comments)
Atlanta to get Traffic Makeover with New High Occupancy Toll Lane - 03/07/11 07:03 AM
Traffic is never a good thing. Well, we know that already. After all, there are only so many innovative ideas that can help you survive long hours in peak hour traffic. But, personal discomfort isn’t the only reason why traffic counts as the biggest pain in the ass for city management. A study conducted by Texas A&M in 2010 reveals that traffic snarls and congestion set U.S. back by $87 billion every year in wasted fuel and time. In addition, companies find it difficult to hire candidates living in other cities or, in some cases, even the other side of the (2 comments)
Cemeteries that Make for Great Tourist Attractions - 03/04/11 06:08 AM
Who writes about cemeteries? In fact, who thinks of cemeteries as tourist attractions? Well, I do! After all some cemeteries are absolutely beautiful places. What’s wrong in exploring them, appreciating their architectural splendor, and basking in their historic glory? If you don’t fancy that kind of thing, you could always revel in the ghoulish aspect of the whole affair - the thrills and chills of being so close to the dead, the goose-bumps you get from letting your imagination run away with you and the shivers that run up and down your spine because you’ve spooked yourself silly. Anyway you look (4 comments)
"Cargotecture" – Finding New Use for Old Shipping Containers - 03/01/11 05:44 AM
How would you react if your architecture proposed the idea of building you a house inside an old shipping container? Surprise? Horror? Disbelief? All three, perhaps? After all who can imagine making a lovely, cozy home inside a dark, dinghy shipping container that smells to high heaven of salt and sea! But see – that is where you would be very, very wrong. Unappealing as these containers might seem to you piled high one upon the other in dockyards, an architect only sees possibilities in them. In fact, converting old shipping yards into homes and offices (and stunning ones at that, (2 comments)
