Duluth Residential Tower (15 stories)

Pretty exciting news for Duluth. What a great location for health workers that work in the two major hospitals in Duluth. I don't want to jinx it, but keeping my fingers crossed for this project!! Hopefully it will spur more housing being built in downtown Duluth. There are so many blocks that have ...

Re: Fargo/Moorhead

...meanwhile in Moorhead, MN. I have lived in Moorhead for over 5 years now and have enjoyed it here. Our downtown has been pretty stagnant for a while, so it is exciting to hear of some development news here, instead of Fargo. The site used to be a gas station and is in a prominent location at two ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Stadium is all light up tonight with all purple lighting inside for Prince's birthday tribute. Check out the webcam on the Vikings website...looks amazing! One question for folks out there...does anyone know any more details about the zinc siding they used on the stadium? It looks pretty neat, but t...

Re: Chester Gardens - Duluth, MN

You beat me to it, HuskyGrad! I was going to post this as well. I absolutely love this idea, concept and design. It really feels like it would blend into that neighborhood well. I hope Duluth can continue this trend and bring some more housing/mixed use into the Hillside neighborhood closer to downt...

Re: AtWater Building - Duluth

What are your thoughts? I try to look at the positive in things, but the parking ramp levels are so distracting for me. It takes away the verticality of the building, making it appear hulking and squat. I guess I am glad that there is a first and second story that are not parking, so there is some s...

Re: Historic Harbor Renaissance - Tower

Wow, this a crazy coincidence! My family and I went up to Ely (from my parents place in Biwabik) to the Bear Center this past weekend and we stopped for lunch at the Good 'Ol Days Bar & Grill for lunch on Satuday. I noticed the billboard with the rendering as we drove back to the Range and was wonde...

Re: IDS Center

martykoessel - Very well said. I completely agree with context is as equally (if not more so) than the building itself. I think you hit the nail on the head with your comments. At what cost do we have a couple great skyscrapers? I think we have learned (I hope) from the brutal, urban renewal mindset...

Re: New Building proposed for Downtown Duluth

Very exciting news. I always thought that site needed some sort of high rise building. I agree with you, mplser, it seems very lack-luster, and somewhat dated (1980's vibe?). I like that it has a lot of windows but the roof seems a bit out of place for the building and the color is rather odd. Maybe...
