Les Young
Prior to going to architecture school, Les Young was a professional firefighter in Dayton, Ohio for four years. He is currently a licensed architect in both New York State and in California. He has been involved in many large projects including oversight of several high-rise buildings, ranging in size from 14 to 40 stories. Over the course of 20 years, he has predominantly assisted with very large, difficult projects. The kind of high-rise buildings he worked on typically have a strong core and weaker perimeter columns. At 55 Second Street in San Francisco, he obtained the permits for the Infinity Towers, which are two residential towers right on the edge of the bay in San Francisco. At 350 Bush, for Shorenstein Realty, he worked with Ron Hamburger, who was the structural engineer. This project was taking place at the time of the 9/11 attacks, and it was located right across the street from the Bank of America tower (Ron Hamburger was one of the engineers involved in the official reports investigating the WTC collapse).
