There’s hardly a single picture of St. Paul up here, so I felt one should be added. I took this while exploring Raspberry Island on the Mississippi River looking at downtown from the south side. Click on an image for the full effect.

Construction is progressing fairly quickly on St. Paul’s upcoming Penfield multi-use development¬†by BKV Group¬†that will include a Lund’s grocery store and apartments. Its design pretty bland, but should enliven a very sleepy part of town and do some good work toward connecting the capitol area with the northeastern end of downtown.
