A reminder on the project:

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 36 stories / ~400'(?)

Here is the image of the whole tower from the Strib. What the the thoughts? I wonder if it will be skyway connected through the ramp? I don't see how with the row of buildings (Public Storage, old Azul night club, etc.) not being demolished. It would need to be some sort of L-shaped skyway over the...

Re: Wabasha Center (Former Macy's) - Downtown St. Paul

What's really frustrating about this project is that it could have been so much better by just having the damn street-level windows NOT black/opaque!! One small change would have made a real difference. Boo to the city and this developer.

And I hope everyone here reading it is leaving encouraging comments as they read. (But I'm preaching to the choir) And writing the mayor's office and their city council member! Don't let them only hear from the naysayers! Let's show them how much support there is for this. They need to hear from us.
