A rendering of Magens Junction II, a nine-story, affordable living complex that will be constructed adjacent to Magens Junction I, which sits at the old St. Thomas Dairy. Completion is scheduled for 2021.

I may have missed it, but since when is it permitted to build a nine-story building in the Virgin Islands (“Finances set for territory’s tallest building,” The Daily News, Aug. 10, 2019)? And is that a good idea?
