There are some design things i did not like but im pretty sure they are going after a look that represents the "Welcome to St. John's" signs on the highway with the colorful little house looking things on it well thats what those tip out looking areas are supose to represent. Ether way still got 2+ more years before we see the final product.
Thanks for the insight! I know that there are always multiple sides to a story (/project) and we can't always see the full process, so it's nice to have someone explain some of the reasoning for size and height.
