Since we're speaking of the pillars, I snapped a few pics of them this afternoon. The top half looks to have a slightly different finish then the bottom (darker) half. Anyone know what this means for what the final look may be? I also noticed that each pillar has an electrical junction box to where a light fixture will most likely be installed. Last three pics are of the (rather average looking) retail doors, and the residents front doors.
The contractor should have stained the concrete columns before polishing it to better even out the colour variation.
