It's going to be tied into their operation, as an area for events, visitors, etc. It's going to have a courtyard and there's actually a pond back there that's going to be refurbished. Sounds like it'll be really nice.[/QUOTE]
The security guard is a little off about its original location. It used to be off San Jacinto Street and 7th. I remember it vividly at that location when I was a kid. I also remember when they moved it because I thought that was the coolest thing to actually be able to move a whole building lol.
