Gigantic Paper Cup

Building is unoccupied and for sale. Heavy overgrowth and parking lot is fully blocked off. Cup looks a bit dingy but still took a great photo.

It is still there. The building has been purchased by two companies. The north side is being renovated. Not sure who had bought the south. But the cup is still there.

Gigantic Paper Cup (Gone)

This place is either being torn down or refurbished. I can't really tell with all the work vehicles in the front grounds. I parked across the street to take pics. I am from California, so why not keep my adventure going? It's a must take pic, especially if it may not be there long.
