The Republic Plaza renovation project converting an extremely ugly concrete office building into a slightly less ugly concrete office building has advanced a step. Crews this week began painting the facade, swapping the peeling white paint for a new scheme of beige and burgundy. The project rendering indicates a few dashes of purple may also come into play. Throw in the aqua-blue glass that’s already been installed and what you have here is a veritable rainbow building.
Office tenants have been back inside the building for a while now that the windows and interior work have wrapped up on some floors, and the new office workers have begun to make the space their own. What do they think of the new floor-to-ceiling glass covering their new offices? It seems there may now be a slight glare problem.
