During development, the City of Tampa, through the ARC Commission determined the tower should be located to the side of the Station, not in front as the artist desired and designed it to be.

Installation occurred on 10-9-03. The contractor erected the tower and secured the sections. The next day the electricians installed the clocks while the contractor completed the installation of the brackets and the grout/caulking between the sections. The above photos are from the first day of installation.
