Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Would be nice if the building could break ground with in the next couple weeks. I’m not sure how often groundbreakings happen in the winter. I would assume that since the ground is frozen, it makes things a little more difficult. These type of projects can break ground pretty late into the year. Ni...

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

I'm always amazed at how many cranky people are on this site - not that it surprises me anymore though. It's a great place for a lot of people to voice their opinions, especially negative ones. The reality is that without MOA, Bloomington wouldn't have the money to do most of what they've been able ...

Re: Eden Prairie - General Topics

The old IHOP (previously Fudruckers) is being torn down. I believe they're going to build a hotel. Hopefully the hotel or whatever goes in there has more success than the restaurants. I worked at that IHOP when it opened in 2011 and there were a lot of slow weekends. It's slated to be a Hampton Inn...

It would be great if both this and Alia broke ground in spring! Watching the two towers go up at the same time across the river from each other would be fun!

Did we know the Bremer bank at 65th and Nicollet was going away? I drove past this morning and the lot was nearly completely cleared of rubble.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

For my partner and me, it's always been one of our neighborhood favorites and we even rented out the space for our weddin...

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

Aw I heard from a reliable source that the Lander 38th Street Station development is not moving forward. I think they may still do something on 29th Ave since they own so many of those houses, but not the full project that had been presented. Suck---a real loss for this area. If this is true, I won...

Boy that makes me think that that Holiday is not long for this world. Granted, that Holiday is near my house and I do use it from time to time. But I'd much prefer to see both Holiday & Burger King lots redeveloped into something housing/retail-oriented. Maybe even a new Walgreens in the base of a ...

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

My hope is that when the various bridges get a complete rebuild, on-line stations similar to 46th St will be built into them. Those are all decades away, though. Agreed - but who knows what another decade will mean with regard to transit investment/car driving/people movement. It could happen soone...

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

Why didn’t they make all of the Orange line stations inline station? How much time is going to be wasted exiting and re-entering the freeway? Short answer, politics & money. Those can be done later, when there's actual money or will. Neither are very high at the moment - so this is better than noth...

It's not going to change anybody's opinion, but there's only $70m going towards the interchange, for Phase 1. The other $134m adds MNpass lanes to 494.
MnDOT looks to add MnPass lanes to alleviate congestion on I-494 in Bloomington
There's a survey too.

I think it looks nice.
If this transitions the strip mall north of it to continue building up - even better.

Is it my imagination, or does the plan call for a drive thru curb cut in the middle of the aBRT station platform?
I believe the BRT Platform would be closer to Park, after that curb cut, which is why I think it's where it is.
