A stunning example of what can be done with a most mundane building. An exciting transformation full of references to the former life of the original building. We applaud the commitment and enthusiasm brought to this urban revitalization. A national restaurant chain could easily have done this on a suburban highway retail strip but instead chose to enhance not only the lives of their employees but also the city.
