Facts

  • The cost of the project skyrocketed throughout construction. At the unveiling of the project in 2006, it was estimated to cost $190 million to build. Due to the rise in the price of materials as well as other unforseen costs, the building's cost had risen to $286 million by the time it was completed in 2010.
  • Originally proposed with a decorative stainless steel spire held in places by steel cables to anchor the skybridge, the spire was dropped from the plans due to costs.
  • The project was designed by Jonathan Bailey Associates, but due to undisclosed reasons the developer dropped them from the project and hired URS Corp. to oversee the project during construction.
