I found the city website on this and was able to view three of the presentations, then I googled smokehouse bridge marco with the name of the other two firms and was able to view those designs. I found the city vote section cumbersome and could not figure how to rank.

My opinion is that the designs with the "wow factor" are a little over the top when you look at the prevailing style of most of the building on the Island and I think in due time they will get old and also require more maintenance. The TBE is my favorite followed by the Volkert...the edge to TBE because or the simplicity and the landscaped Medians which kind of follows the theme down Collier Blvd.
