Man, those things are mighty ugly. I'm sure that they cost a small fortune as well. Something tells me that the return on investment will never be realized.

This resi is an 'ongoing' project. Their next inspection is due mid-January. I have only seen these fixtures from the street, & don't know any details yet. They were not part of the site plan, nor on the approved electrical plans.

With that being said, I guess that their being free-standing and isolated means that there wouldn't be a need to include them in the electrical plans. I still think that they are ugly!
