Finish Line in Sight

We are less than a month away from the grand opening of the connector, so a lot of small things are happening to bring it to completion, including flooring, painting, fixtures, etc.

From the Top

Have you ever wondered what the connector looked like on top? Have you wondered what the shingles were made of? Have you wanted a closer look at the details of the roof supports? Have you wondered just where the HVAC units are, the "mechanical garden" that used to be in the courtyard?

The pictures below show all of this plus many of the new details on the inside.
