It’s hard to imagine anything short of a minor nuclear detonation really helping this sad monument to architectural bad taste.

Hmm, maybe two nuclear detonations - one for City Center and one for the even more ghastly Treasure Island Center - what on earth were they thinking? The pig is dirty white in this case, but the lipstick is a total mess. The most recent render (I just saw one today) of the City Center redesign is at least more even handed and clean. The mess at TIC - which extends around all three visible faces of the old Dayton’s building is a jumble of conflicting ideas, cheapened on every side by the cheesy Treasure Island branding.

I won’t hold my breath on this one. The budget is small - given the scope of what really would need to be done to transform the dismal Mall frontage of City Center. It’s not only lipstick, but cheap lipstick at that.

I don't know, The Nicollet Mall frontage has been neglected by the owners for decades. Maybe not great, but at least it's a clearly visible improvement , and they're finally removing some of the fortress wall.
