Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Hey buddy, my point is that many of those stores were already on the downhill for 5+ years. A retailer isn't going to determine a store should close based on a 2 year phase.

Re: Red Rock Corridor

Hey long time no talk.

Just reinstalled Firefox to find this gem of a project being in my commonly visited back in 2016.

They're still having meetings, as their most recent one was 9/28/18. Does anyone know what's new?

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 35ish stories - ~500'

Hey friends, this thing is pretty far from a full out design overhaul at this point. So if we could maybe have a thread on

"This is my idea of an iconic tower"

That'd be greattt

Re: Scherer Field/Hall Island

We need to make a STRONG connection from Plymouth Bridge to the Grain Belt neighborhood. Lots of new units over there with a growing retail and employment center. We almost need like a greenway that diagonals from Marshall/Broadway down to the new park and development. Lined with more housing, a new...

Re: 1202 4th St SE

Quarter block but it's still a horrible project so far.

300+ beds but chalked full of amenities (waaay too many). This should have retail and just a basic lobby. We're trying to get cheaper houses here all.

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N

Has anyone seen the inside of these buildings? They're impressively preserved in its current state. Would be leased by a restaurant or retail tenant in less than a few months.

This is horrible

Like... really awful. Proportions are all wrong. There's absolutely not enough units for downtown. And it meets the street in the worst way possible.

I'm going to vote Walz. But I'm not sure if I'll campaign for him. Few questions based on his US House website: Southern Minnesotans are uniquely interested in both renewable and non-renewable energy resources, and I value your thoughts regarding coal mining activities. Should legislation on the iss...

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

That would've come out looking like a St. Paul postmod mess. I'd rather have something minimal, but pleasant to walk by (retail!) than a statement.

Not from what I heard a month ago. Maybe they found another site? That corner parcel next to Fairgrounds? The 1 story building behind the Lowry building? Literally anything on Washington?

Re: City of Minneapolis Office Building - 501 4th Ave S - 11 stories / 171'

I had a dream this grew to 20 stories last night and became very BIG (Bjarke-Ingels) like. Very clear boxy.

Just for fun. No new info added.
