The Joyce Waddell Rose

The next Weston rose on our mini-tour is the Joyce Waddell Rose, located on the Ross Island Plaza, a small office building at SE Center St. & McLoughlin (although the street address says 8th Ave.). A 2008 Tribune article about Weston rose murals explains that this one is named in honor of Joe Weston's VP of accounting.

The weird thing about the location of this one is that I once lived just a few blocks due west of here for a couple of years back in the mid-90s, and I had no idea the Brooklyn neighborhood contained any office buildings until I went looking for this rose. The building does a great job of not drawing attention to itself. It looks like it might have a good view of the river from the top floor, though.
