The unique façade design features aluminum fins wrapping two sides of the building for the full height. These fins were designed and shaped using 3-D computer-generated models which resulted in an undulating façade that visually changes based on the point of view and sun angle. Coordinating with the transit authority, the adjacent light rail platform integrates into the design, and the building provides a shade canopy for passengers. Automobile-themed public art is displayed at street level adjacent to the main pedestrian entrance to the facility.
