The 1999 final design was produced by Ronald Evitts and Fred Schwartz at Schwartz Architects (successor to Anderson/Schwartz Architects), who succeeded Whitehall Architectural Design/Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates as Architect on the project. This design is essentially the same as the previous two, with the significant exception of the waterfront façade, now crowned with a publicly accessible roof-top viewing deck and photovoltaic panel canopy (for more information click here), and clad with a stainless steel corrugated siding capped by a floor of glass curtain wall. Other modifications include a simple, rectangular mullion pattern on the glass facades and the extension of the sloped roof over the Waiting Room and Exiting Concourses.
