Former Car-X Site

Car-X has closed; the structure has a new roof and the beginning of a new facade. Does anyone know what is going in here?

Re: Calhoun Square

What is Hilarious is that is probably about half of what Blackstone paid for it! From the Star Tribune Article: "In 2007, the center changed hands for the second time in three years, when BlackRock, a New York investment firm, bought it for $47.3 million." ...that isn't a bad ROI but I don't know h...

Re: Elan Uptown Phase II - (center and west blocks)

The first move-ins will be in August for this second building. It does look like they have a lot of work to do, but using the projects in dinkytown as a benchmark (which all have August leases inked,) they are further along than The Venue at Dinkytown is...

Re: Lime - (2900 Lyndale Avenue South)

We know it's not driven by reduced rents, and it sure feels like a project that bills itself as "luxury" should be able to do a better job meeting the street. Which part do you wish met the street better? Are you referring only to the facade? It's really big, but I think all three sides are neat (e...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

Funny how most of us will agree in principle that having a single company master-plan an entire neighborhood is a Bad Thing, and yet the minute Ryan's proposal looks bigger, the attention is on that. I'd kind of like to see somebody other than Ryan develop this so that we get more hands into the de...

Re: Current & Proposed Downtown Minneapolis Projects

On the tour of Lime, the developer with Greco told us that the developers tend to get nervous exceeding the $100 million mark... which is right around the cost of The Nic on Fifth and the similar projects in the area.

Re: The Marshall - (1313 Fifth Street Southeast)

TONS of new renderings. Popped up as an ad in my facebook news feed. Looks like this is going to be a pretty cool place to live in terms of amenities, especially by comparison with the other developments that offer little more than a small workout facility. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a....

Re: WaHu Student Housing - (1016 Washington Avenue Southeast

The angle of that rendering makes the "tower" actually look like a tower... it's just the end of a structure that is much wider than it is tall which you can see better from this picture from an old minnesota daily article

Re: 815 14th Ave SE

A notice has been affixed to the corners of the existing structure (the printing company's building) that says there is a meeting scheduled for May 20th regarding the application for changes in zoning

Re: 815 14th Ave SE

This is spot on. The train traffic is primarily freight plus the daily amtrak. As stated above switching occurs and on occasion engines will idle overnight. I live in the lodges and will occasionally be awoken to some very strange noises coming from the tracks. That said, I don't see any reason why ...
