A great curve of glass buffets the office workers from the harsh motoring experience just yards from their front door. The West Loop (Interstate 610) buzzes past without much care for this modest-sized office building. But on a warm night, the light show begins. The curved westward-facing façade of this building gives it the ability to play with sunsets year-round, adding its own colors to the painted sky. The best observation post is across the street in the Uptown Park parking lot where you can see from one end of the building to the other.
