Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

Just a couple of months ago, Pawn America was going through the permit process to reopen their store at University and Fry. Now TOLD Development is proposing construction of a new bank building on this site. Aside from the fact that it is not a pawn shop, this is a disappointing proposal (a 4,700 sf...

A small win for the urbanists? Allianz Field will have a team store open daily, year round, on the northwest corner. https://www.mnufc.com/post/2019/02/07/black-and-blue-team-store-sign-goes I am as gung-ho as anyone about the stadium as well as what it will mean for surrounding development.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

The Pioneer Press article gives the most info I've seen yet on the plans for both Big V's and Hot Rods (Midway Saloon and Gibson's) including a rendering! I have long imagined that sort of shared patio for those two businesses, so I'm glad to know I wasn't completely up a tree! https://www.twincitie...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I can't find any past posts on "Liffey on Snelling" but it may not matter... The construction trailers that have been collecting graffiti for the past year have vanished and the most recent permit (Architectural Review) is "On Hold". For what it's worth, the website is still active... http://liffeyo...

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

After about seven years as a vacant eyesore, the renovation of the Shilla>Kum Gang San>Korean Garden>Asian Buffet building on Snelling near Minnehaha is coming along nicely. Signage for the new restaurant went up today. No word on any prospective tenant for the southern third of the building, but I ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Bus Stop Brewhouse looks really cool, and is apparently intending to be open for next Sunday's Vikings game. I'll believe it when I see it. Given that this is how the place looked on Tuesday, I expect that won't be happening. But I am really looking forward to the end results! https://i.imgur.com/9...

They passed up the projections for 2030 (at least as far as average weekday ridership) several years ago.

It looks like FireBox Deli may be opening a location in the old Garden of Eva building on Marshall and Snelling. They have proposed some sort of addition to the building - can't wait to see more details! https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/STPAUL/2018/11/02/file_attachments/1100692/pcactionm...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

I have never really understood Trader Joe's. It doesn't have the breadth of product range I expect from a "supermarket" but can't make up for that lacking with anything significant in the deli, meat or produce categories. That said, I did buy a couple of items on their opening day. Working nearby, I...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

A ban on drive thrus seems pretty clear cut... but fast food? How is fast food even defined for such an ordinance?
I love having a Culver's in the Midway... it was the best recent addition to the neighborhood until the stadium came along.

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

Strange they'd close Rosedale but not University Ave... must be some lease language somewhere. It was just last September that they sold the Rosedale store with an agreement to lease it back for 20 years, but who knows what sort of an early escape might have been written in. http://www.startribune....

Re: Green Line LRT

I am often frustrated by the lack of preemption at 280 and would love to see that happen to even a minimal extent -- it doesn't seem an unreasonable expectation given traffic volumes. As far as Snelling (with 33,000 cars per day, the need to coordinate timing with the signal at Spruce Tree, and addi...
