Work on the exterior sunshade continues at a rapid pace (as weather allows), and we hope to soon provide photographic evidence of its completion. Until then, the interior of the building continues to reach new daily milestones. During last week and through this week, focus has been on the Teen and Children areas. In the children’s area, approximately 50 small LED light fixtures have been installed. Viewing the image below, one can channel their childlike imagination, so the fixtures appear as stars. This will be especially effective during the evening hours.
The teen area is also abuzz with activity as approximately 40 of the LED fixtures are also being installed. Additional focus is being placed on enclosing the teen gaming room, called The Zone, and installing wiring for The Studio. Each of these specialized rooms will be very popular with our teens.
