Good article about the recent waterfront developments in Minneapolis and St. Paul in the Star Tribune today. It starts with a story about a couple looking for a new home:

"They'd seen Barcelona and Bangkok, Venice and Tel Aviv. But when they came back to the United States, their search for a new home took them to the Twin Cities. Specifically, the burgeoning downtown Minneapolis riverfront, where they bought a sleek new townhouse with concrete floors, tall windows and a knockout skyline view."

It's tainted a bit by its Chamber of Commerce tone, but has some nice human-interest qualities.

Full story here:
