Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

While looking around I noticed this permit in 2007 for masonry work on the brick veneer. Possibly a sign of previous issues that people were referring to:

Re: RISE at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

Looks like they now have a fully furnished demo unit ready, along with most of the western half of the building, and are working on the Fresh Thyme space. Hoping I can get groceries in my own neighborhood before the superb owl.

Re: Prospect Park - General Topics

Given the other plans for Green on 4th and whatever Aeon comes up with (plus the senior living place), and all the students living in the area, an Aldi or something in that price range would be great. Looking at the whole of Prospect Park, there's a huge amount of housing growth that's happened and ...

Re: 3300 University Ave. SE - United Properties

The Prospect Park small area plan map of 'issues and opportunities' hasn't identified the church as a historic landmark worth protecting (though textile center is??), however it does fall within the residential area exclusion boundary, no doubt they would still protect it. http://www.minneapolismn.g...

If we backtrack, amiller92 refused to acknowledge that businesses may have legitimate concerns and went straight for calling people he or she doesn't know racist . That is where I take the issue.

Re: Construction Webcams

Anyone found one for the Rise, in Prospect Park? Last week or so new cameras appeared on the roof of an apartment building facing the construction site, if they're intended to be construction webcams, would be fun to see.

Also, right next door to this, a storm water biofiltration facility has been completed, featuring a 206,575-gallon underground tank. Here's the project summary and photos on Mississippi Watershed Management's website: http://mwmo.org/projects/towerside-dist ... er-system/

Acme Comedy Club and other businesses are now circulating a petition to oppose the development, because the loss of a surface lot would be too much for them.

Re: RISE at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

Also, brief update-- biked through the area. They're digging up part of 30th to do some work on utility pipes, and overheard in the new local cafe that there's some asbestos removal still going on. Contractor's field office is now in place in the lot just to the north.

Ugh, great. Hope someone else willing to buy and actually build is kicking around ideas there.

Also have heard that the potential Aeon site just to the east needs some soil cleanup before anything can happen there as well.

I wonder where exactly they're at, or what they need to move forward with this project? Fairly certain the neighborhood supports it, so that's no problem, their list of partners on the website is pretty lengthy, and public documents show they've been getting money. Still waiting to finalize a propos...

Dug around rather heavily through public documents on the city website last night, for both this and the street reconstruction and even Aeon, and nothing is submitted or official enough to find outside of mentions of funding allocation.
