It is all very grand and done with lots of public money. The goal, however, was tourism development. This has not been achieved. The project is not a success. Spending millions on bathrooms and fire escapes is not long term job creation/tourism as was intended . The building needs a major anchor show-JUSA.-designed to attract out of town patrons who would bring money into the City vs locals. Oglebay and WD-as examples- do not depend on locals. The Capitol should not either.

As usual the locals try to camouflage failure with photos of expensive renovations vs actual tourism enhancement figures(which are not there)

There are brand new restrooms in the front of the building in the new lobby/concessions area. You should really go and have a look at the renovations. The building looks amazing.
