Re: Northside - General Topics

This is really such a gorgeous neighborhood and essentially walking distance to downtown.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

There was a twitter exchange a few months ago where the city revealed they are pursuing removal with MNDOT. The state has most/all the power on this decision, right? https://twitter.com/worthington6121/sta ... 2946419712

Re: 800 Washington Ave - 14 stories - 173' (Guthrie Ramp liner development: Reloaded)

The SW facing multi story indoor winter garden is gonna be super sweet. Glad to see larger units proposed but yep, those 3-bed layouts just hurt to look at.

Re: Doors Open Minneapolis event - May 18-19, 2019

I'm gonna start at Target Plaza lights and work my way downtown toward the river on Saturday. Hoping to catch tours at the Fed and Post Office. Maybe Mayo Clinic Square on Sunday.

Re: 2800 Wayzata Blvd. (Former Northwestern Bell offices)

Includes a greenhouse! I'd like more non-senior developments with specific gardening amenities, please. The AMP house (RIP) is the only one I've seen proposed.

Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

The "restaurant space available" sign now has a giant LEASED sticker across it. Any ideas what's going in here?

Re: Southside - General Topics

Tenant pays electricity on all of them, with most of the units' HVAC consisting of electric baseboard and/or wall units. "Free heat" in the two downstairs duplexes I found.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Out of curiosity, I researched and reported the seven 2-bed 1-bath units available in my neighborhood. One bedroom rents are all over, including above and below this range, but all 2-beds (including condo mortgages) were within $1200-$1600. $1550 or $1575 for renovated units in 2.5 story midcentury ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

While I'm sure there are fans of St. Olaf's midcentury building that would be sad to see it go, ::raises hand:: We already have one former midcentury church on the edge of downtown that's about to be replaced by a residential tower so I'm cool with the only remaining one altogether in the CBD stick...

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

Is there any reason why they need to develop both blocks at the same time? Would be better to see more focus on one of the blocks, and leave the other block empty even if for another development cycle. Exactly what I was going to suggest. If there’s only sufficient demand for X units, then build X ...

Re: The Amp House (3255 Garfield)

I ended up chairing the meeting. The project we saw tonight had the parking removed and all the units were 1-beds. Someone asked why they didn't propose 2-beds and they said those are always the last to lease up. The builder was initially opposed to removing the spaces as recommended by the COW, but...

Re: The Amp House (3255 Garfield)

The email from the neighborhood called it a "public hearing" so that's a misnomer?

There are four new-build townhomes nearby off Lowry, close to the new Market BBQ. I think they're rentals?

Re: The Amp House (3255 Garfield)

Now that I think about it, it's probably triggered by the lot split this time around. For example, 601 W. Lake has a CUP and variances, but no legal hearing.

Re: The Amp House (3255 Garfield)

The Lyndale neighborhood group votes to give their "support" or "blessing" to a developer's request for variances/CUPs. It isn't binding. Earlier, the housing committee expressed their unanimous support for this project. Yes. I think the CUP triggers a legal public hearing including flyering the no...

Conditional use Permit to exceed the maximum building height (max height in the OR1 is 2.5 stories). 2. Variance to reduce the established minimum front yard setback along Garfield Ave S for t...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The existing facade, while nice, really doesn't have enough windows in it for an office user. So there would have to be pretty significant changes to the facade anyway. Good to see they'll also be fixing the bad sidewalk condition that currently exists here. Unfortunately, it means there will be on...
