Best Building

In its first eligible year, The Pablo Center at the Confluence (128 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) took a solid first place Best Building in our reader poll. The structure is an artistic masterpiece of design that houses theaters, galleries, and community rooms. Banbury Place (800 Wisconsin St., Eau Claire) is always a draw with its 1,900,000 square feet —  housing artists, business owners, and loft-style apartments. The Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 Main St. E., Menomonie) has been beckoning visitors since 1889. This sandstone Victorian oozes historical charm. — Diana Peterson
