Wish we could get some bump outs and plantings around the Muse of the Missouri fountain and add seating/public space, a la the Janette Sadhik-Khan era Manhattan pedestrian updates. It's quite a pretty fountain and would be a nice little island in the middle of Main Street if there was any way to allow folks to access easily.
The muse fountain also just needs more buildings north of it. It's always looked a little lost out there.

I'd love Main to get reconnected so we can get a big flatiron building at the junction. Would look like times square

I have to admit that even though the new building is not significantly larger than the old one, I do like the appearance of the new building more.

i'll still bitch about it being underwhelming for being right next to a streetcar stop, but at this point that's mostly because i like bitching. this looks like a much, much better version of the corrigan out building with more pedestrian friendly ground floor and more interesting structure overall.

The only thing I dislike about the building is that they kept the sidewalk very narrow despite plenty of opportunity to implement a wider path. I blame the City more than the company.
