Thrivent's Surface Parking Lots

I think this 20 story is proposed for the north part of the full empty block, not the half empty block shared with the existing Thrivent offices.

Re: MSP Airport

MSP tied for second most transit accessible airport in the U.S., tied with O’hare. Miami placed first because of the large number of bus lines that run from neighborhoods to it.
