Looks like something could finally be going into the building at 3025 Lyndale, which has been vacant for......10? years.
Maybe this didn't get posted - thought it had?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

After they only received 1 proposal, that doesn't seem to meet the RFP, I wondered if they would cancel it and make some changes. Seems there was interest, but concerns too, which prevented more players from submitting.

So did we talk about this? The 801 Chophouse didn't take their name from the address, 801 Nicollet Mall S. It's the name of the chain and just a coincidence that they landed at that address.
Yes, it was discussed when they announced taking this spot. Works well for them regardless!

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

I'm afraid the streetcar is on hold until Hennepin County remembers that they're able to fund transit that doesn't run out to second-ring suburbs. Quite true. However, I think we have a unique situation where this falls entirely within the City of Minneapolis, is owned by Hennepin County, but any t...

Maybe they’re going so fast because they want to have the ground all dug out before the winter.
Once you get to a certain depth, winter doesn't matter to the soil, since it's below the frost line.

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 250 Hennepin Ave - 21 stories - 256'

Great to see some action finally happening here. Given the position of this building at the edge of the higher rise core of downtown, it will be a good transition to the 519’ across Hennepin and another good addition to the Washington streetscape. No this isn’t spectacular architecture, but it is c...
