A few days ago I showed in this space a couple of pictures of the flowers that used to be changed regularly around the tree in the Gateway Center lobby between Gateway One and the Hilton Hotel. I recently revisited the area and took an updated foto, which shows the tables that have replaced the flowers so people can relax and have a cozy lunch under the skylite.
I don't see why there couldn't be both flowers and tables, and there are still some flowers or decorative plants in the planter. What is not self-evident, however, is that the tree is fake! The tree that used to be there was real, but this is a very good imitation. I'd prefer a real tree. I think the trees down the corridor to the Hilton are still real. But this one is such a good fake that I'm just not sure.
