Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

It appears the central avenue bridge will be closed for close to two years due to a significant rehab project.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Over the last couple of weeks they've been adding signals to the entrances of the parking ramps as well as each of the levels. I'm assuming they'll be used to indicate the number of available parking spots but have no idea how they're supposed to work yet. I've been seeing the bay monitoring system...

Finally some action here. The Fuji Ya building is fenced off and backhoe is on site digging up the parking lot.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Saw a geotechnical company drilling in Churchhill's parking lot this morning. Might not mean anything, but would be cool to have something built on a surface lot I thought would never be developed. Fingers crossed.

Re: Residences at 33 S 5th St, 40 floors. 451 feet

Wow this came out of left field. Looks great, the parking podium is hidden nicely unlike a lot of the other projects that have gone up. Replaces a couple of empty buildings and new residents to help support restaurants and businesses on the north end of Nicollet Mall.

Re: Mill City Quarter - 300 South 2nd Street

Looks like the first floor is being split into 3 parts. A sign saying Pure Barre coming soon is in one of the smaller sections. Still hoping for a pharmacy in the big section.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I wonder if Hines will dust off this plan? Overall vacancy rates are very close to 2008 levels, but I'm afraid the CBD is too high at 17.7% If they can snag a 300,000 sqf client to take a 1/3rd of the building maybe they can get it going with the rest speculative. http://www.bizjournals.com/twinciti...

Re: Chinese food downtown

Not Chinese food, but I highly recommend checking out Bep Vietnamese for lunch in the 5th street towers. Opened up late last year and the service and food is always outstanding. My go to place for Asian food since there aren't many good skyway options.

Re: TCF Bank Building Redevelopment

I like the sound of this, hopefully something modern and timeless, a lot of glass, but not something too crazy that some architect is trying to make a name for themselves with some experiment that will be an eyesore for ever.

I heard on KFAN the other day there was a rumor that they have to replace a bunch of it due to water seeping in behind the panels.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Really the only open lots left in the Mill District are across the street from Izzy's and 205 Park Ave, which I have to think Minneapolis will put a RFP out eventually.

Re: Alatus St. Anthony Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site)

You should've seen it before. It had some box jutting out, it was really out of place. I think they're still trying to configure that. I hope so, I liked the top on the previous rendering where it got narrower at the top with the brown L shaped thing. This doesn't look bad, but I think it would be ...

New seating, bike racks, fire place, bocci court, retail, new skyway entrance...seems like some nice upgrades for this sterile dead zone it's been.
