Artwork includes a 60' highlighted "hood ornament," fabricated out of red and blue perforated metal, to create a purple moiré pattern. This sign marks the south entrance. Marking the east entrance is the car tower, which showcases 6 vintage automobiles from the City Auto Collection. During Hot August Nights, a vintage car festival, this car tower showcases the winners. Cars are located, one to a floor, adjacent to the elevator tower, as creative wayfinding. Other features include: embossed concrete patterning based on pin-striping designs. Paving is stamped, creating diagonal red and black bands of tire tread patterns that lead from the curb to the pedestrian retail mall, on the first level of the parking garage.
