Hopefully the final renderings are more alluring and play off of the river.

I think that rendering really shows the buildings but different angle might show that the views aren't as blocked.

I like the colors they are very St Paul colors and architecture needs more color these days

We just moved back downtown and this project is horrifying. Not only does it block the river view, it also doesn't add affordable housing (important for disabled people who need to live close to accessible amenities!). Good thing Gov. Walz turned down the $40M bonding request.

Unless you're in the first tall building in St. Paul, your building probably blocked someone else's view at some point.

Someone's view will always be blocked unless there is only one building over 10 stories. Granted my view is a burned out speedway so. I preferred the original renderings but this would still be a major win for St Paul.
