We’ve been on two-week holiday (read: furlough; read: fantastic) and returned this morning to see that the scaffolding’s come down from our new glass-enclosed bridge! Which bridge will lead to the new, nearly completed Mark Jensen-designed rooftop garden. I’m the type to forget this kind of thing is happening until the big reveal: but wow: new architectural object:

Interior’s still not quite finished:

And here’s a sky-view of the building where they keep half the staff (including me):

You can see video of the massive steel supports for the bridge being lifted into place last summer here.
