Two Arts Plaza Design Comes to Light: The most interesting line in this paywalled DMN story, regarding One Arts Plaza’s design: “The understated concrete and glass high-rise was styled so that it wouldn’t compete for attention with the landmark cultural facilities planned in the Arts District.” So a developer purposefully created a less attractive building, lest it take away from the “landmark” nature of new buildings?
