Rochester and Duluth

Recommended Posts

This is recently completed Broadway Plaza in Rochester. The tallest in the city at 29 story's and 342 feet.

And, Duluth is building a hotel/condo mix.

The new, 11-story building at 311 East Superior Street will house a 147-room Sheraton Hotel on its first six floors and 33 loft-style condominiums above, including five 11th floor penthouse suites featuring dramatic view of the lake. The project will also incorporate the elegant ballrooms of the venerable Greysolon Plaza, a 1925-era former grand hotel across the street from the building site, which Sherman Associates is in negotiations to acquire.

It's not that bad. I saw it a few weeks ago. The pictures shows are not at the best angle. Compared to the other highrise hospital buildings in the town, this one looks like a masterpiece.

Ewww, that Rochester highrise looks like a prison watchtower.

Yeah..... what... in the... hell.... were they thinking there.

If your going to build a horribly ugly tower, make sure it isn't the tallest in the city.

The Rochester tower actually really isn't that bad at all and fits into the skyline really well. That's a poor angle and not a great photo. I have some photos of it while it was being built while I lived in Rochester. I'll try to find them.

The target market isn't necessarily locals, but well-heeled visitors to the Mayo Clinic, especially those from the Middle East. It was bankrolled by a Saudi concern, I believe, and with rents that were projected to start at $2,500/mo, there weren't many locals who would be looking at it...

That tower doesn't look that bad and I'm glad the city got it, but it sure is rather bland I must say. Maybe I just need to see it in another shot or in a shot of the skyline.
