    Did you get up onto the traffic island to take these pictures, Edward?

    The atrium's facade is of clear glass, appropriately. How did those who have inspected the building closely find the quality of the stone?

    It's ok. Dull color though.

    I think it woul dhave been nicer if the stone on the ground level was minimized so that there was much more glass... or no stone at all. That would have made a great composition for the statue- soon to be on 270 degrees of the Circle.

    Either that or more stone, past the height of the statue... but too late with the TIHT.

    I saw the Circle at night, AOL-TW was still being built and had a long way to go, but the view at nught was incredible.

    Once all of the sides/construction is done, it will be on of the best intersections in the city.

    Columbus is now surrounded by a deep moat, and the west side of the circle is closed for construction. It would be great to get a view of what it looks like from above. Anybody with a digital camera?
