Did pelli make the library kind of look like the dolphin staffing building?
No, his inspiration was books on a shelf.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I do think we need a "Minneapolis" sign, but not sure where to put it? St. Anthony Main? Gold Medal Park? Boom Island? Bde Maka Ska? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/92/Toronto_sign_%2844247399214%29.jpg/220px-Toronto_sign_%2844247399214%29.jpg https://www.downtownindy.org/blog...

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as "Minneapolishenge" for sunsets/sunrise? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattanhenge I am thinking that Mpls might have a chance in both summer and winter and STP might in winter due to the grid alignment. My mind is wandering with these snowy days. https...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Thats understandable. I figure we could do both though. Would having an earlier bowl eliminate the chance to host the CFP national championship game? Levi's Stadium is hosting the Redbox bowl on Dec 31st and then the CFP Championship Game on Jan 7th. So yes, it can be done. Just need a Corporate Sp...

Re: Favorite Skyscrapers (old, new, proposed, cancelled)

Since not much is happening lately, I thought I would revive this thread... I thought it would be great to get the Burj Al Alam tower on the Benson Lot in Mpls. I think it would compliment the AT&T tower with the roof lines. Granted it would only be 750ft, because this is Minneapolis after all. ;) h...

Saw a rendering of a losing bid for the air rights above Central Station on the Green Line today. Can't share much but I'm hoping whoever beat out the kick ass design I saw has an even better design. Fingers crossed for an announcement.
unexpected. hope to hear more soon.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

From an interview today in the Athletic with Bill McGuire: You had mentioned large green spaces and a “Great Lawn” surrounding the new stadium. Is that on track for 2019? The Great Lawn is going to be in this fall. That’ll all be done — you’ll be able to see Shields Avenue going in front of the sta...

The one that was a converted hanger in 1986 (?) prior to the current terminal 2. Google didn't help.

Re: Cambria / Fairfield Hotels - 41 10th Street N (former Ramada block)

Here's the packet. Usually, I can spot the orientation easily, but are these buildings together facing Hawthorne, or are they an L shape with one facing the Greyhound Station and the other Hawthorne? I didn't notice a great layout of the site. The adjacent lot that will be used for valet parking by...
