You can weigh in on the decision. Weigh in all you want. But it's not your decision. It's your money, though.

Minnesotans have NO sense of 'nostalgia'. Everytime something gets older, they tear it down and build new - like the Saints Ballpark (or the Dome, or the Vikes stadium before that etc etc). That is why Minnesota will never have a 'Lambeau Stadium' or a 'Wrigley Field'...because they tear everything down and THINK 'new' is an improvement when in fact, it is not. Its so sad.

Just a small thing. It's not "....HOK or Populous" Populous is HOK. HOK changed its name a few years ago.

The public art project at Union Depot is very impressive. The idea of another public art project to be associated with the ballpark is very cool.

xrkqwk - we don't have a Lambeau or a Wrigley because we built train-wrecks like the Metrodome and Midway Stadium. Build them right, like Target Field and the X, and we will have our classics for decades to come.

Why not ask the 1100 fans who will go to each game?

….".You can weigh in on the decision. Weigh in all you want. But it's not your decision. It's your money, though." …… Well, that is true with just about everything along government lines….

Being a St. Paulite, I'm surprised they just didn't slap Win Young Hue photos up and call it good like usual.

So glad that St Paul is finally getting beyond the "ye olde town" aesthetic for everything from buildings to bus shelters to bridges. You don't have to look further than the Wabasha Street bridge to understand how damn ugly "historically sensitive" design can be and what a huge missed opportunity that whole project was for the city of St Paul.

Between a renovation bill passed in the early 2000's and now an Atrium Renovation, $440 MILLION dollars has been sunk into "nostalgia". Wrigley Field? $500 MILLION going into that "nostalgia". I'd rather have a new facility.
