Wow, this picture is amazing!  Back then 1st avenue was filled with all different kinds of vehicles carrying industrial goods for trade.  Today it is filled with all different kinds of vehicles carrying woo girls.  How times have changed!

I remember when Fountain Square opened.  It was with such fanfare.  It died almost as quickly as the fireworks bursting in air.  If you worked in Metro Center and lived in Bordeaux as I did, it was a great addition for the workforce and residents nearby.  There wasn't much in terms of food options in Metro Center until Fountain Square.  And, the shops and movies theater were a much needed bonus.  Oh how I enjoyed Fat Tuesday's... ;) 

So, they no longer have the floating fountain?

I agree. Yet in my mind I'm still 'placing' all those buildings on the drawing boards at their future locations.  Instant gratification...  I guess I'm just greedy.

For some reason this didn't really occur to me until just now, but you could put a whole other skyscraper on the land where Batman's pointless front lawn is.  I never realized just how huge it is!  Yikes!

What you call a pointless front lawn, I call that a privately funded park. Different perspectives. Many people enjoy that green space, daily 

Lol easy tiger, I was merely making an observation about it's size.  I realize it is privately funded and I have no doubt that some people probably enjoy their sack lunch there on occasion, so calling it "pointless" was inaccurate hyperbole on my part.  In any case, if it is going to stay, which I'm sure will be, it'd be nice if they invested in it a bit more and made it more functional and interesting.  I remember reading that there were plans to renovate some things on that property.  Perhaps that is part of the plan?

Take it easy tiger, they have been upgrading the landscaping and the grounds recently.  I saw it the last time I walked by.
