Re: Malcolm Yards Phase One (food hall, apartment buildings, grocery store)

The walls were brought down to roughly the point they're currently at a number of months ago. Guessing some of the material at the top damaged by fire was just too far gone to safely leave in place.

In other area news, the distillery next to Surly has been under construction for a few weeks now.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Bachelor Farmer must have been going under before all this. Their family is worth almost $2B. They could have saved it if they wanted to.

Still a shame.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

The houses in question are all in a very small stretch, between 27th and Lake. Could still fully close the rest.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Why is West River Parkway open to vehicles at all? It doesn't provide access to anything that other roads don't. Just close it all.

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

Apartments for the other half of the block are back. Eight whole stories. What a waste.

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Unrelated, but have heard some rumors starting to float around the neighborhood that the strip mall hosting Micro Center may not be long for this world...

A slight shame, as I was really looking forward to taking the train to Micro Center.

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Please just make the waterfall look like a waterfall and not a dam again. The problem with the falls is that they're ugly, not that we can't see them.

Re: Seven Corners: Hotel (30 stories) & Student Housing (12 stories)

Yiiiiikes.

If there's not a way to make this project happen on a space that's already mostly surface lot without preserving at least some of the existing small-scale buildings, it's not worth building.
