When you stand at the end of one of the piers and look back toward downtown, you really get the sense that you're in a real city. Before the waterfront development, you felt more like you were in a large town. With the hotel and condos going in now and the multiplex in the future, it's going to feel even more metropolitan in the years to come.
Still, an 18 storey cylindrical tower would have been awesome on the waterfront. Duluth and Kenora both have cylindrical hotels, why can't we have one?
It would have been the tallest cylindrical hotel in the region if it was built!
