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 was really hoping the skin would be coming off soon, but they must just be doing interior work right now.

Re: The Hilton Rochester (former Broadway at Center project)

Drove by this the other night. They are about halfway done with the facade. Inside looks to be making really good progress. The 4th floor ballroom could be seen thru the windows and is pretty much complete already. Love these clear windows that really allow the building to interact with the street i...

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...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

I hate to be the guy that thinks everything should be taller, but if this project was even just 5 stories higher, i think that would really help break up this stretch of buildings.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

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. So a person buying before the...

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.

Re: Suburban Malls and Associated Retail News

I wonder if Scheel's would ever consider the Twin Cities market? They are very popular in the cities they are in. The recently built a new wing onto the mall here in Rochester a few years ago, and has been VERY successful. The place is always busy, and we personally get a lot of stuff there.

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

Just speculation here, but could it be that the developer knows that financing is only going to get more expensive in the years to come with rising interest rates? Why not lock in the financing now when rates are still low and get these projects done since they have already done the design legwork.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Why would a Walgreens at a tourist destination have a pharmacy? The amount of people that would actually use it to pick up prescriptions would not pay the cost of the pharmacists. Most people use it as a convenience store, not a pharmacy.

Re: Rochester

Looks like the first 3 medical floors will be the same design, followed by the 4th level being glass all around. Kind of transitions into the hotel portion with all glass. I agree that it looks odd right now, but i am sure the final plans will look much better. Are you sure the marble is in Italy? I...

Re: DTE: Wells Fargo, Radisson Red, Edition Apts & Millwright Building

The Wells Fargo may also not have been built as Class A. If I remember, its purpose was to house a lot of back office type jobs, and not necessarily executive teams. So why spend the extra money to make it Class A space, when the tenant doesnt need that.

Does anyone know if the U of M owns that parking lot next to this? (C97) The only reason I ask, is the U tends to name their parking lots in this type of manner.

Re: Rochester

So UMR is joining the anti-place ranks of Mayo in buying property and turning it into unactivated and unused plazas (at best) or surface parking. Well, this space is already over by the large city park, and was an under utilized space, so not that big of a deal here. UMR is also filling space in th...

VFW was bought and torn down by UMR. No immediate plans, except I think turning it into green space for the time being.
