Could you consider turning the wind connection 90 degrees so that it
moment-connects the column to the girder running over top. If it is round,
an end-plate style detail (well, cap plate for that configuration) might be
better. Fewer pieces and less geometry to deal with. Actually, I like that
detail for rectangular HSS too.
