Fantastic photos, SolarWind!
#1 and #7 - Wow!

This part of downtown really needed and deserved an anchor. A building that created an identity. This really fills that roll.

Can't wait for the garden/park to reveal itself and be finished.

While Van Buren doesn't appear as bad as I had expected, Clinton is spot on awful.

Generic faceless corporatocracy?

The resurgence of OPO and Union Station are the true void fillers.

OPO’s Park is pretty dead even though it has much better views. I’m looking forward to how this one turns out. It seems like it’s gonna be big enough to have some appeal. Plus there’s a cut through the building so I suspect there will be some organic foot traffic through here.

That will change once more of the tenants actually build out and move into their spaces. Sure OPO is 90% leased but what percent is actually moved in?

I believe the OPO Plaza (at the river side) will flow into the food hall planned on the interior, so that should activate it a lot.

As I mentioned before, I don't think the BMO plaza will be as good as everyone seems to think. Has anyone actually tried to hang out in the plaza/park space at River Point? Or Wolf Point? Or 150 N Riverside? I ate with friends at Gibsons Italia a few months ago and we went out to the River Point park to take a group photo, the security guards shooed us away within seconds. And we were paying customers who were dressed nicely. No, BMO will overpolice their plaza to keep homeless people away, and harass anybody who tries to sit down unless they're wearing a suit and carrying a sandwich between the hours of 11am-1pm. I hope I am proved wrong but I'm not optimistic.

The park space looks nice enough and will only get nicer as the trees mature over time.
