The Sanlin: the watch band building on Canal Street

NEW ORLEANS, LA – SEPT 20: The Sanlin (aka watch band) building was built in 1953 and is a multi-floor retail and restaurant property located on 400 Canal St in New Orleans, LA.

It has been said that the facade of the building resembles an old expandable watch band that is stretched out revealing its gold-like links that run up and down the structure with the blue Sanlin logo in the middle resembling the time piece.

The City of Tampa has its own building, nicknamed by locals, the ‘beer can building‘ due to its round shape as well.
