So all of the columns, most of the columns, the majority of the columns on the interior of the building are all part of the core so you never really see them, they're part of the rest rooms in this case, there're couple of free standing columns here but then the rest of them are either built into the stairs and then all along the exterior wall so all of the interior space where all of the offices would be, the conference rooms, break rooms, all of those things are all column free. And one of the requirements that we had that was part of the program was that we had to have a column free space of 45 feet from the core wall to the glass wall because the tenant that was gonna be laying out their plans, they had already done some preliminary drawings and it was determined that they needed that 45 feet.
