Quite an big undertaking and keeping things 'green' and looking low impact is a big thing to them. It should have a very positive impact on the surrounding area. What a dramatic change for the area!

I am sure Steve Jobs would have liked to be around to see it completed.

Jony Ive is mostly responsible for the aesthetics of Apple. I think with him staying onboard, the aesthetics of Apple will continue for some time. smile.gif
