Anyone know or heard of any plans to "dress up" the exterior of the building? I'm thinking of improvements to exterior lighting, and maybe doing something with the flat brown panel side? Maybe a mural or something artistic to add color and life...something along the lines that has been done with skyscrapers in other metropolitan downtowns?

Its such a prominent part of the downtown skyline. I'd really think there is a opportunity to improve things. Ive often lamented how detrimental that empty building was to downtown and to the city's morale. Now I think it could have a total opposite affect. I doubt if I'll ever have a reason to ever use the building, but I sure will have to look at it a lot. Then again, Im just happy now when I see lights on thru the windows.
