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...

Re: Minneapolis Armory

Has anyone seen plans for landscaping? I hope they are just waiting for winter to be over and not just leave it as is.

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.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Anyone know anything about the Old Republic Title Builidng on 2nd Ave and 4th St? With little knowledge on occupancy, I feel the location, floor plates and aesthetics could make for a nice residential conversion.

Re: Plymouth Building Hotel Conversion - (12 6th Street Sout

Soo Line Building added an additional elevator to take you from the 18th floor to the roof top... I'm sure this is a much more affordable approach then using the existing elevator shafts. Then again 5 star hotels aren't always looking for the most affordable options.
