The U.S. Steel homes were experiments in all-steel construction and angular, modern shapes. A strip of these private residences are still standing along Sunny View Drive, tucked away just Southeast of San Rafael and Indian Canyon Drives. The project, designed by Donald Wexler in 1961-63, proved to be too expensive and only six homes were built.

Most of the homes had an eerie gloom about them while I was there. A huge storm had just finished passing though. However, it didn't dim their spare elegance.
