Is there a reason to care?
I would prefer to have people in the building than not.

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Is there anyway to confirm that people are buying these units to live in as opposed to money storage. While I don’t think this is necessarily that case, it’s still a concern in the back of my mind.

Re: Northside - General Topics

I’m not really feeling the huge parking lot behind the building. That being said, I do appreciate that it is behind the building at least, and adjacent to railroad tracks.

39.6 Million Passengers used MSP this year! More impressively, I think, is that 63% of passengers originated here as opposed to connected through here.

It looks like they went back to the previous coloring of the tower.

I keep reading that there are 8 tunnels on the SW LRT. Can anyone shed some like on this, because from watching the flyover video, I only count two.
I believe that they are referring to the pedestrian tunnels along the corridor as well.
Got it. Cheers. I hadn’t even thought of those lol.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Would it be too inflammatory to suggest a 900 ft tall freeway lid? :D That could get two birds with one stone, a lid and a new tallest hahah

Not a move to either downtown, but I take this as a win for companies moving to more central locations in general.

Re: MSP Airport

https://www.suncountry.com/deals Sun Country announced 4 new routes from MSP today. With the addition of Portland, ME, I think this means that MSP is connected (at least seasonally) to 45 of the 49 states to which major commercial airlines fly. The states to which we don't have flights are Alabama,...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I guess this should go here. As a native Minneapolitan I want to give some love to St. Paulites and say this is poor form on the buisness journal staff. Nothing like listing the location as Minneapolis when talking about a site in St. Paul.
