Best Imitation of the Sugar Building (2001)

16 Market Square

Heading down Blake Street, you may do a double take when you spot the brand-new, red-and-blond-brick 16 Market Square, designed by Hartman Cox, along with Quinlivan Pierik & Krause and David Owen Tryba. "Did they move the Sugar Building?" you might ask. Or worse: "Am I heading the wrong way down Wazee Street?" Actually, the new building is only reminiscent of its older neighbor in terms of color, size and corner location: The Sugar Building was modern for its time, but 16 Market Square is traditional for its era. Despite its antique veneer, the building features state-of-the-art, 21st-century amenities. It's also a nice addition to the neighborhood.
