Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

Condo sales/apartment rentals maybe should to be forced to disclose which chunks of an “assumed view” is developable so people desiring to own/rent can make informed decisions.

Non-disclosure would put liability in an interesting place.

Re: Edina – General Topics

This is the Cupertino syndrome. Any children except those who have already enrolled are viewed as a burden, far better to let the school district wither away gradually than accept an underutilized medical office building get replaced with market rate housing and more taxpayers.

West Lake Street Hotel- 3012 Excelsior Blvd (8 stories, 100')

Still happening. Now 9 stories, with wider sidewalks. Could begin this fall.

The West Calhoun Neighborhood Council feedback was positive that it was narrower, but also upset it was blocky and icky.
