I'm usually on the side of 'a building is always better than a parking lot', and I know the market in Downtown isn't as strong as Minneapolis, but it's it a bit disappointing to see brownfield sites with unlimited potential be used to build something that we'd expect to see next to Ridgedale.

If it includes decent retail spaces and street presence, I'll take it. That surface lot has been eyesore for too long. Wish they'd reconfigure the street grid in this area to make it more intuitive though. Some free-right turn lanes could come out IMO.

It's the "missing middle"!... in downtown StP.

It is good to see this lot going away, but the design really does look suburban at this point. Does anyone know if the hotel is still slated to be a Radison Red. If so, I would have expected a bit more flare in the hotel design. At this point , both the hotel and the apartment belong in the burbs.

Design drawings from the April 10th HRA Meeting indicate it'll be a Courtyard by Marriott.

Why is this not taller - I mean, for river view alone, height would be a winner.

Can't believe the value of the land at this location doesn't support taller building.

Are their height limitations I'm unaware of?

^ Just market limitations. Whether it's the speeding highway-like traffic on all sides or the spillover perception of the homeless shelter across the street, there just wasn't the necessary market forces to develop something more ambitious. I'm glad it won't be a surface lot anymore.

2-3 weeks before we start with site removals, I was told today.
It will be interesting to see a rendering of the project, it seems Opus and the city had a tough time coming to an agreement on this.
