Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

It's kind of wild that people who don't understand basic parking economics are in charge of managing economic growth and inflation for our entire economy. Their jobs have absolutely nothing to do with basic parking economics. Why would any team from the Fed waste time away from projects they are as...

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

Haven't been there in years, but went a lot the first 5 years it was open. Always parked in the under group portion. And that was part of the appeal of going there. When weather is bad, you park in the heated garage, and when you come out you are no more than 100 feet from the front door of the esta...

Re: Nordic House - 729 Washington Av N

Good luck selling units in a building that allows short term rentals. That is a huge red flag for conventional financing, and most lender's, including government backed loans, will not finance these.

Re: Nashville

Just returned from a trip to Nashville after not being there for 5 years. WOW!!!!

The old skyline is completely taken over by the new towers downtown...

Just think of the number of doctors, NPs, PAs, CRNAs and other professions at HCMC and the U of M hospital. That is large number of people, many that may prefer to live close to work. Not to mention pharmaceutical sales that need to be close to hospitals and easy access to the airport. This is a gre...

I agree to a point, but you are hiring a realtor to work in your best interest, complete the due diligence on the property you are looking at, and ensure you are informed. A realtor doesnt just write up the contract and take a commission of 3% for nothing!

Any realtor worth anything would inform their client of potential view obstructions. This includes any units sold in Legacy. Unfortunately, there are a lot of realtors that only want their clients to buy/sell as soon as possible so they can get their commission. So there are a lot of unit owners ups...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

How much would it cost to build a building the size of WFC now. Including the cost to remodel, the market would seem to support an investment firm like this just building a new building.

Re: MSP Airport

Of all the airports I have been to in the US, MSP is absolutely one of the best. I will agree that I hate the airports where you go thru security after many of the food options and different concourses. Fort Myers is a good example of that, and so is Denver. Denver has the best food options prior to...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Has the timing for the Green Line been shortened? I though I remembered that it was close to an hour from end to end when it first opened.

Also, 36 minutes from EP to downtown seems really fast considering how long of a route that is.

Re: Rochester

I don't think there are any immediate plans to develop the property. I suspect the developer is tearing it down before any additional efforts can be made to block the demolition. Exactly. A project was all set up, but demo of the Days Inn was holding it up. Those plans are now gone, but the owner w...

Once sales go through, they won't be confidential anymore. You can search the owner and how much they paid on the county website: https://www.hennepin.us/residents/property/property-information-search Problem is, those will be pending sales until the tower is complete.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

I don't get how the parking is accessed thru the current ramp. I didn't see that in the plans at all. Just looked like you are hoping those spots are empty in the ramp, so you can drive thru them to the parking for this building.
