A changing downtown

The skyway to nowhere was torn down over the weekend.  The skyway once connected Dayton’s to the Wabasha court building which was demolished in 02. Sometimes progress is slow. The Dayton’s building, which was vacated by Marshall’s several years ago, will be converted into this parking, retail skating rink thing that I am not sure I understand but it sounds better than vacant with a skyway to know where connected to it downtown.

The West publishing demolition has been slow and will forever change the river bluff and the views from the river. The demolition is supposed to be complete in the next few months. Work will continue to stabilize the bluff.

I wonder what the bluff will look like ten years from now?
