Gateway to the City

Circle Arch slide



The above design was chosen over four others to represent a gateway to our city. The design will stand 280 foot tall and will be illuminated in lights. The final design isn't set in stone, but let's hope they don't follow the advice of one panelist who trusses resemble the double helix of a strand of DNA to highlight Indianapois's strength in the life sciences. That's so 1950s.

It is interesting that the Indianapolis Star has not covered this significant story. I first heard yesterday when a friend of mine emailed me this IBJ article dated December 30th. The only mention that I saw in the Star was by a Fresh Thoughts Blogger who hates the the selection.

Jason at Foursquare 266 and Christopher at On the Cusp have posts about the design.
