Evening stroll under the star last Thursday 

I still miss the retro lights that outlined the star... and the string lights it used to hang from. They could've accomplished the retro look with LEDs while preserving the vintage charm.

I recall that, in years past, there was nothing around the star in the center. Just the star itself with those strings of lights you mentioned attached at each point.

I guess it's good to change it up every once in awhile.

i thing they managed to do the impossible with this new color scheme. Which is to make our tallest building look short and fat. The crown disappears into the cloudy sky on most days and actually makes the building appear shorter. Only in this town... Should have been darker to stand out imo.

this town is allergic to "tall."

I've never liked those pyramids. They just look odd and funny from certain angles. 

I'd liked/loved to have seen them removed and replaced with something not only a bit taller, but sleeker and less gimmicky looking.

Copper that ages to a green patina would have looked better or even glass paneling that illuminates from underneath.

CSP is also very gimmicky with its hodgepodge of patterns.  It really ruined any perspective of height the Suntrust tower once had.

Do you think CSP can be salvaged if the columns and garage are painted dark gray (or a different color) other than white?

I also think the idea of the garage screening on paper was nice, but the follow through IRL was a bit half azzed. Too bad an architect from Miami wasn't involved with the design, because the screened garages down there are pretty nice IMO.

I think that would help. The white doesn’t do the building favors.
