Re: Minneapolis Riverfront

The MPLS Parks Foundation has released the updated plan of the Water Works site. It looks like 2018 construction if they can get funding.

Re: Mortenson Hotel - (19 8th Street North)

They've got some updated plans. The only changes that I've really noticed are that they've moved the breakfast area to the front corner, and they've gotten rid of those window graphics. Nice changes.

Re: The Interchange

I'm really nervous about the Metro Transit Cop Shop they want to set up here. Not that I don't think they should have a presence, because obviously they should, but because it was announced so late in the game when the damned thing was already designed. Like, if they plan on taking up the space tha...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Not too much new information here - mostly just about the city looking at subsidies. The initial proposal is for about 460 apartments and 1 million sq feet of office space:

Re: Nic on Fifth - (455 Nicollet Mall)

That old McDonald's building will come down tomorrow. There is also an updated rendering in the article, which also shows the new Xcel building next to it. The colors seem a little different in this rendering. The Xcel building is more orange, and the Nic seems more yellow. http://www.bizjournals.co...

Re: Handicraft Building Apartments

I'm guessing their 10 story plan is based on the economics of the project. From everything we've been reading it sounds like patching together funding sources for projects is the biggest challenge for developers today, especially on larger projects. This is the team that proposed the Nicollet, so I'...

Re: 330 South 12th

This is a big site, I would hope they could find a way to preserve/restore the historic facade while putting a classy looking skyscraper in the center. Looking at Google maps it looks like the middle is currently a parking ramp.
