Can you really write this with a straight face? As someone who grew-up in St.Paul and has spent much time there, this article is no where near truthful. The only thing I can say about the billion dollar investment, is what a waste of money. Too bad that STP has not had good management for over 30 years. Love STP, it deserves better.

The increase in occupancy was a result of office space being removed from the market, not a result of more businesses moving in. It's kind of like Detroit claiming that it is boosting home occupancy rates by demolishing housing.

I love St. Paul. There is really no good reason to come to downtown though. Maybe the saints will help that. If there isn't an event at the X or something like that, there is no reason to be in St. Paul.

Woe to St. Paul, indeed, but I was born and raised here. Lived on the east coast, the west coast, and moved back to settle in St. Paul, because I love it. I agree that more should be done for the beleaguered city, but it does have gems downtown (Mears Park music and movies in the summer) and lots of wonderful restaurants (Pazzaluna, Meritage, Barrio). Only St. Paul natives know the true wonderfulness of the city.
