Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 23 stories - 256'

I could have sworn I already asked this, but I guess I didn't. Did we ever see final drawings for this? Isn't the floor count and height up from the original packet a few pages back?

Re: Alia Tower - 200 Central - 483' / 40 Stories

This would be less disappointing if they hadn’t rushed to clear the pleasant almost historic building from the site only for it to sit empty. We have seen this too many times.

Re: Nicollet Mall

Finally! Are they the same round ones they used to use? Which are fine...just curious.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Random interjection....my bf works at Sephora corporate, and apparently that new-ish uptown store is doing very badly. I’m surprised H&M is still there. I just don’t know what kind of retail works over there...urban outfitters has been there forever, wonder how they are doing. Certain chains seem to...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

I was trying to think what could be done to clean up the space...and the only sort of thing I can think of is filling the area under the sculpture with something like a food vendor. Maybe a stationary tiny space to rotate different food truck vendors through? Not sure what else would work. Filling i...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

And it continues to be a sad and disappointing state of affairs with regard to retail in uptown and downtown. How can we keep adding all of these residents, but we can't seem to support retail? I am not there to see, but Henn and Lake must be looking pretty sad....that is a lot of vacancies within o...

So, I hate to be that guy that brings a thread to the top making it look like there is news when I just have a question...so I will ask this here:) I don't live in Minneapolis anymore...I wonder does anyone have any recent pics or an update about how Peavey Plaza is looking? Isn't that supposed to b...

Thanks..it is a nice little green space. Hopefully it will get a little more use with more activity up at this end of the mall.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

And just like every new development in Minneapolis, the first step was to take out every tree :roll: All those new trees along Nicollet...where that the set back was by far big enough not to damage. I wish they would have moved those to replace other dead trees, but they prob just cut them all out. ...

So making it what...5-10 feet narrower all the way around at most? Not much difference.

It's true...can you imagine? They work for any mode of transport. Horse and buggy? It's got you covered! See what I did there?

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

PS, random note...if nobody has noticed, this building is pretty similar to the relatively new RBC tower in Raleigh, NC. That one is decent, but a bit disjointed with the mix of uses and the tacked on spire. Hopefully ours will look better:)

I probably wouldn't mind signage if they were limited to the size of the RBC one, actually.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

It's weird that this site still has to carry its 'iconic' baggage. If this is a mediocre development, then... what is everything else that's been built in the last two decades? I mean, this will literally be the best high-rise building built in Minneapolis since at least 2007 (Carlyle), and I'd arg...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

I really couldn't care less about the pull in for the hotel...I think it would actually improve this part of Hennepin, keeping some activity going there often, and you know it would be a well maintained area with that type of hotel. The sign, I can see being an issue, I do like that we aren't clutte...

PS. J2...maybe you don’t intend it, but you’re coming off awfully condescending and rude. This is usually a pretty friendly place for commentary where one isn’t berated for not sounding like an architect or engineer. Maybe lighten up a little, I’m not as clueless as you seem to think...I have enough...

Textured precast with depressions (instead of actual glass) that matched the window patterns would also maybe be an option?
