RPM is a text book case of F you, I want mine. The new plan cuts the pathway, heavily used path, along the north bank of the river. It is going to kill the foot traffic that helped make 320 bar (next door) a hit.

They cold have done like the restaurant at Marina City, which co-exists nicely with the river path, but instead ripped out the stairs and put up a railing to block pedestrian traffic.
Correction - checked again and there is a set of stairs on the SW corner by the bridge - narrow stairs and a doorway sized gap in the glass railing . In the past that would have been a problem.
