This is the Life Sciences Tower at ASU. The tallest building in Tempe, it houses a 3,500-square-foot greenhouse on it's roof. Part of it can be seen in the last two photos (on the right side). Feeling a bit better today. :)

What an awesome angle, the shadow is also great and the colour of the whole composition looks nice and warm somehow.

Great choice for your perspective and excellent lighting! The polarized-looking sky is fantastic!
