Chase Bank Tower gold glass?

So, I got a message from someone on Facebook who said he has some of the original gold glass panes from the Chase Bank Tower that he's looking to sell.

I was wondering if there might be someone here who might have an idea for them. They'd be great as an art instillation or as decoration in a restaurant or something similar.

Hi Kevin, I saw your name while researching Austin's "Golden Mirror" online.

I happen to have some of those old windows with the gold in them. I'm wondering if you're aware of any collectors who might be interested in them. Currently having them appraised.

Every single one of you that complain about downtown parking podiums better be voting Yes on Prop A this November. I don't want to hear any, "Well the train doesn't stop in front of my house" bullshit.

50 years ago Austin had a city population of 250,000 and one highway where today at 1,000,000, six highways/toll roads, and one rail line. What will it be like for the next 50? Hopefully voters get smart and realize by starting building a metro system now Austin will have a widespread metro rail network by 2070 which has always been a foundation for moving people around in any large city.
