It was really the catalyst for the uptown revitalization, including river-rafting on the Chattahoochee, renovation of the adjacent warehouse buildings into mixed-use, multi-family, retail, and restaurants.
Some of the best restaurants in Columbus are now in those buildings.Mike Tillman

This project spurred the emergence of Columbus’ riverfront as a revitalized mixed-use destination. On a tight urban site flanked by new public parks and requiring relocation of public roadways, Synovus’ office headquarters’ traditional street-side façade addresses the historic downtown while the riverside façade is a more contemporary addition to the surrounding progressive community.

I think it is the best of both worlds.
The architects did a good job. They have a good understanding of the Columbus look.Jim Buntin
