Union Block 2010 Steve O'Neil Apartments 2015

That was then, this is now. The photo on the left is the old Union Block in 2010; the photo at right is Steve O’Neil Apartments today. (Apologies for not shooting from the same angle for this before/after comparison.)

A ribbon-cutting and grand opening was held today at the new 44-unit complex located at 115 W. Fourth St. in the Central Hillside. The apartments are providing supportive housing for families that have experienced long-term homelessness. it is operated by Chum, which provides 24-hour supportive services to those living in the facility.

I am really glad they got this built.

That said, I wish we could put a moratorium on this style for buildings in Duluth. I see them all over the United States and they all have the same stupid design and color palate. This building, the new hotel on Central Entrance, the Bluestone Commons and others are all so damned similar to every single other building being built throughout the country these days.

They will be dated in 20 years and we will be calling for them to be renovated as they have become an eyesore.
