Beige is Out

The U.S. Bank Building at 50 Courthouse Square, one of downtown Santa Rosa’s most prominent buildings, gets a paint job. The building has been beige since at least 1975. A dark brown color now sets it apart from the Rosenberg’s building across D Street and the two other tallest buildings in the area, the AT&T Building on Third Street and Bethlehem Towers on Tupper Street—both beige. (The flower planters and concrete downtown markers at street level, beige for decades, were painted an aberrant salmon color three years ago.)
