Cocoa Beach Glass Bank in 3D
We are embarking on a virtual recreation of the Cocoa Beach Glass Bank as it appeared in 1963. This video represents the first phase of the project – the exterior of the building and basic ground floor. To enhance our model, we need your assistance – any photographs or your memories will enable us to add more floors and details.
Cocoa Beach Glass Bank Laser Scan – Updated from ChronoLeap on Vimeo.
In November 2014 researchers from the Institute for Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida conducted a laser scan of the “Glass Bank” in the City of Cocoa Beach. Constructed to be the home of the Cocoa Beach branch of the First Federal Savings & Loan Association of Cocoa, the structure clearly was a Space-Age calling card to the missile activities at Cape Canaveral/Kennedy just north of the city. The video provides images of the building during its heyday in the 1960s – including Ramon’s Rainbow Room.
Florida Today photographer Malcolm Denemark produced this great video on the Rise and Fall of Cocoa Beach’s Glass Bank.
