I’ve heard the Thrivent sign will be going away and will be replaced by a slightly smaller Hennepin Healthcare sign.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

What an asinine location for a parking ramp!?? An unbuilt location in the North Loop with river views and trail access would make for an amazing residential opportunity. Whether it's condos/apartment/townhomes, there are so many better options than a parking ramp. Is there a less critical lense when...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

Crazy to see how many of the ideas became reality... redelopment of KA block, bumpouts, Commons Park, HCMC development. Living in the area, I've been happy with much of the new development but even with all of those changes I feel like the area is still lacking an identity. What do people think will...

Re: DTE: Wells Fargo, Radisson Red, Edition Apts & Millwright Building

Based on the numbers provided, I agree that would make sense. That said, why wouldn't the Wells Fargo office space be considered Class A?

Re: Wells Fargo Redevelopment - 801 Portland

Great news! Have any plans been published for the 16-story proposal? The number of significant developments in this area is really exciting. Excluding US Bank Stadium and the Commons Park developments, a number of them are listed below: - Portland Tower (Fall 2016) - replaced surface lot - Kraus And...

Re: Legacy Condominiums - 121 12th Ave S (187' - 17 Stories)

I think we need to give Stanton more credit. His buildings aren't 'iconic' but they often fit in well with the neighborhood with reasonably priced floorplans (I understand reasonable is subjective.) Without his significant development in the Mill District and North Loop, I'd be surprised if either n...

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

I'm surprised this project is getting as much criticism as it is. I don’t see any reason this block can’t have the same success as the KA block. Within one block of this block (3 x 3 = 9 sq. blocks), there are a total of seven surface lots (not counting the three parking garages) that make up an oce...

I like that they are thinking about adding some unique exterior lighting design elements but can't they come up with something that's not already part of the skyline.
Maybe a laser show with music? They have this in Hong Kong I hear.
Now that would be cool!

Re: Cambria / Fairfield Hotels - 41 10th Street N (former Ramada block)

A few thoughts...

A design fit for the suburbs (outer ring at that.)

Should be a slightly more affordable hotel option downtown than what currently exists.

Given the minimal investment, let's hope there is the ability to redevelop as the rest of the neighborhood builds up.
