Plenty of Sparkle Gives Westin New York at Times Square Extra Flair

There’s plenty of sparkle in the new Westin New York at Times Square hotel. There’s glass and metal that reflects the bold, imaginative design of the structure itself and the adjacent retail/entertainment complex dubbed E Walk®. This new Westin hotel even illuminates the night with a beam of light that arches through the 45-story glass prism and beyond. The glittering facade on this $300-million project features 8,000 sheets of glass in ten colors.

Dave Mungenast St. Louis Acura

A driver on busy Manchester Road in the St. Louis suburb of Manchester, Missouri, could easily be drawn to the new Dave Mungenast St. Louis Acura dealership — in spite of many distractions. The traffic is heavy, competition from other retail outlets is intense, and a cluttered visual field requires compelling brand identification. Fortunately, the design of the dealership is compelling.
