The 88sj.com or just THE 88
Kudos to the marketing team behind The 88 condo building in San Jose. The ad in the San Jose Business Journal is brilliant.
"A 22 story Declaration of Independence. I want my city without the white picket fence. Without three-car garages, trips to the hardware store, to big-box chains, and every trip to anywhere that looks exactly like where I just came from. You can take your rakes, mowers, blowers and your leaf-packed gutters and keep them far away from me. And while you're at it, keep the minivan, the outskirts, and your keeping up with the Joneses, and keep it all to yourself. Just leave me to my own devices, leave me the skyline, spontaneity, and a lust for life, and all its experiences. Leave me a home above, the city below. And leave me THE 88."
Very cool way to market a building.
