Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

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.

Doesn't look like Surdyk's is going anywhere anytime soon, despite all of the tall new neighbors:

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.

Re: Melzer Block (E Hennepin between Univ and 4th) for Sale

Re: Melzer Block (E Hennepin between Univ and 4th) for Sale

Frey lives in one of these buildings, so any proposed redevelopment would be interesting to see play out. Looks like it's just for sale though, no? I didn't see any indication of redevelopment plans in that video.

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)
