I took this from the window of CoCoMsp on 4th street in downtown St. Paul The light rail construction is fun to watch. In this photo I am looking down at the coppery roofs of the light rail station at the union depot. The building in the picture is the depot. It is hard to work at CoCo without looking out the window and watching the work. When this is all up and running it will be fun to photograph at night.
I am so excited about the new fire station. I love the way they designed the building to fit in with the older buildings around it. The bays for the firetrucks are set up so that they can drive in one door and out the other. They put a beautiful antique firetruck in the front window. The windows are dirty so I didn’t bother trying it get a good shot. I am not sure when the new station is going to be up and running. I must get photos!
It is located on the South corner of Randolph and West 7th and will replace the fire stations on Randolph and the station on West 7th.
The rail line and stations at one government plaza in downtown Minneapolis. There are heaters in the shelters but it still gets cold. I love the government center building and the contrast between the old and the new on this street. I don’t like the snow so much though.
