Re: Rochester

So I take it everyone on here agrees that Target should be funding the light rail connecting downtown to Maple Grove, since it benefits their employees? To blame Mayo is laughable. They actually do provide a lot of parking for their employees, and of course they aren't going to charge, it is part of...

Re: 1410 Loring - 1400 Nicollet Ave. (Market BBQ redevelopment)

I may be in the minority, but I really like the 1 story old school building at the corner instead of a 15-20 story building. Would be better with taller mid block buildings.

Re: Rochester

I don't think that is a huge mistake. I think it is a great idea. This is a short term solution while they get the BRT system up and going. They have limited parking right now. Would you rather they build another ramp downtown? The Kmart site is not ready for any redevelopment right now with many be...

Re: Rochester

Holiday Inn renovation into the Hotel Indigo in downtown Rochester will include a Crave restaurant on the 2nd level. This will include a large patio space on the corner facing Historic 3rd that will have a retractable roof and retractable walls on the corner. Should do very well there!

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

When I lived in Rochester, my wife worked at Mayo and I worked for one of the big banks in the cities. I was fortunate enough to be able to work from a Rochester branch most of the time, but would still have to make the commute to the cities very often. I would say it was just as busy going north th...

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

2 hours would be a deal breaker. Have to be able to make the trip in an hour or less. That is why high speed rail is really the only option. If you can make the drive in half the time, it doesnt make enough sense for enough people. Commuting 4 hours + each day would be a deal breaker.

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.

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...

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: 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.
