Our new fountain!

One Plaza FountainWell this has taken quite awhile but it looks like its almost installed. The renovation of the One Plaza (previously known as the Piazza Bergammo) is almost done. They finally installed the new fountain head. I just happened to be downtown when they were installing this so these are pretty exclusive images! Just caught the relationship to Iwo Jima.





Aparently the first sculpture was defective so they had to order a second from China. It took them a bit of finagling to get it in place (hint – next time chamfer the holes from the bottom). But it looks beautiful. Do I dare say it – but I love it!

It’s a bit like a wind tunnel through the plaza but I think that will end when the new Aloft hotel goes in and we finally get into our summer weather.

The Thursday concerts should be moving there soon.

Drinking FountainBonus alert! It may look like its been there forever but they actually just reinstalled this old drinking fountain outside the plaza on North Main. Very cool!

Let me know if there is anything special you would like me to keep an eye on. So much going on its always hard to keep up with it.

  1. Courtney – thanks for the comments. Stopped by tonight and added a video of the fountain. The whole thing is not quite finished but it looks close.

  2. I just got some snaps! It looks great. Not all of its going just yet but almost.

  3. Oh I can’t wait to see the finished product!!! Thanks for keeping us updated. I don’t get downtown as much as I like to but I have been very excited about the redesign of this area.
