Then they'd be driving a Cadillac truck if they were a tycoon. They wouldn't bother with the Ford of the commoners. :-D

Hopefully they won't have to wait long. Verdict comes through on the ninth, but it's basically a sure thing. What really concerns me is the funding.

The articles I've read indicate Calatrava hasn't decided on a material just yet, so you might get to blow your wad if he picks a different color. I think it would be interesting to at least EXPERIMENT with a darker color, like maybe a navy or even a black-blue style. Hell it'd be interesting to see what it might look like in bronze like the Sears Tower.

Btw, I usually (not always) hate blue in towers. blue glass against a blue sky looks anemic in my opinion.

Maybe some talented photoshoppers could come up with some examples.

I wasnt really sure if these are what you both meant, but I tried a few colors anyway.
