Some interior pictures of the K&E spaces. Overall, very clean and modern, lots of back-painted glass walls and doors. Love the wood floors, but curious to see how they hold up over time.

Main conference floor reception on 6th floor:



Balcony off the conference floor (not quite finished), with views of the river:


Conference elevators:


Main conference floor hallway (15-foot ceilings):


Upper conference floor reception:


Cafeteria on 24th floor:

The lobby:








Pretty pimpin' views from the upper offices. I'd never get any work done, I'd just stare out the window all day.








Nice detail work on the outside:

WOW! All those pictures are amazing. I didn't know it was open already.

I really love this tower, but maybe more because I use the Merch Mart Brown Line every day and followed this building along every step.

A cloudy day and a crappy cell phone camera, but finally got out onto the recently-finished balcony (Cinco de Mayo party):


(this view looked much more impressive in person)

Those are really great details on the outside of the building. I wish my company had a cafeteria with views like that. I can't wait for the plaza's trees to mature a bit and see what it looks like then.
