There's still the view of the horizon over the lake, I would much rather see that. I don't think that a building is going to block the river wind either. If you know about fluid dynamics, the wind will just increase speed and go around the building, it doesn't actually "block" the wind at all. If there is a wind it will get to where its going regardless of the presence of a building or two in the way...
