Tear it down. A nice park on the banks of the river right next to downtown would help the local businesses a lot.

make it a homeless shelter, that way the bums can take baths in the river, thus saving the city huge water bills and cleaning up downtown at the same time!

If it remains, why not use it as a prison? Thats exactly what it looks like.
It is BY FAR the biggest eye sore on the upper Mississippi.
Please GET RID OF IT! along with that Frankenstein Lab directly across 61.
What a door step corridor to a Hastings or any Rivertown, MY GOD!
I would like to see a turn to beautiful Mediterranean Architecture for Hastings to set it apart from the ugly traditional Midwestern crap.
Its a perfect time to go in that direction.
