Fountain Square Progress

I must reiterate how much I love the new Fountain Square! It is more open, engaging, and personable. The trees offer an oasis of shade for those lounging on the square, and the water wall/spray features offer something for families. Overall the area is looking great!

Via Vite is progressing quite nicely and should be a great feature on the square. The re-cladding, on the south side, of the 5/3 building is nearing completion as well. I might add that it's also looking quite nice. Now the north side of the building is another question.

They have put in these colored beams as the source of re-cladding. I'm not a big fan to say the least, but on the bright side it seems to compliment the Cadillac suspended above the entrance to the new Cadillac Ranch Bar & Grill. I don't know what they were thinking when whoever drew up these designs, but I guess it's just nice to see more investment in the inner-city. Maybe it's a good thing I'm getting picky...

I actually thought the colored bars were kinda cool looking. On the other hand I guess I can see how they might get old.

Maybe I'm being a little preemptive with my judgment...but right now it's too stark of a contrast.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the colored bars but I will have to admit that it is a hell of a lot better than the skin that used to envelope that mess of a building. I'm looking forward to the other side being finished in July! I already go down there at least once a week and I love to just sit and talk with friends!

I liked the colored bars. They lend color to an otherwise drab building. Too many concrete bldgs downtown, in my opinion. (I guess I just want everything to be brick or neoclassical or simply architecturally charming!)

I guess it's the lesser of two evils. lol
