My parents convinced us to do the pics for the flying people way back in like 2006 or whenever & I would personally love to tear those out myself.

That was the worst art project downtown in awhile and it only aged worse with time.

Just don't do technology unless you're willing to upgrade it.

It's a hard site. No one wants to do fountains because no one wants to pay, but that's obviously the best option.

No one wants benches and open squares because they're scared it would attract, well, people.

I’m working with them on some LED screen upgrades as well.

The swoosh over "Center" is the outline of the building itself, which is cool
