This is what the backside of the block became. You might say: yikes. That's not an improvement.

Well, it is, and it isn't. In a way it echoes the black stone of the StarTribune building, which does not exist anymore except as this reference. There are enorous pieces of monochrome art showing nature scenes, and they're interesting.

Half the block was a parking lot, so it's not as if we really lost something important, other than an opportunity.
