Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

"That would be great if true, but there's not much there at a lot of stations - Bassett Creek Valley (old Royalston), 21st St, Beltline, Louisiana, Golden Triangle in particular don't have much for destinations. And that's being pretty generous to the rest, most of which have either housing or place...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

I have to say that that area has changed so much - every time I take out of town friends through the Washington corridor they are shocked at the complete transformation... the new question is probably what will go into the south side of the park and on the last few lots int eh Elliot Park neighborho...

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

years ago the discussion here was about how the one way to break the lease and break the lot back into two blocks without the participation of Kmart/Seritage was using a transit related law that allows the city/county/state to take right of way... Does anyone else remember that? I looked back many p...

Re: M Health Clinics and Surgery Center (fmr. Ambulatory Care)

The u of m plan is to continue to extend other medical buildings out into those blocks closer to the 94 entrance/exit. It is all being redesigned as the new “campus gateway”. Those fist few blocks on the left or east side may have more “outpatient” type functions and then if you continue to drive st...

Asphalt is the 'terrazzo" of 70's.

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'

About 40 people from the four seasons have been staying at the hotel that I work at. I mentioned to a couple different guests that we were excited to have them as neighbors. All of them said that a hotel here is rumors only. That the media has promoted it but there's nothing official. So maybe it's...

Anyone snapped a picture of the demo today? I assume it is being "disassembled" rather than imploded.

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'

There won't be a sign on top - the city is extremely clear on that... I think the allowance on the Wells Fargo Towers were truly an exception... The city has no intention of seeing names on the tops of prominent buildings. I'm sure RBC would like to push this issue - but I highly doubt it will get a...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

To me the threat is if the economy at large tanks... experts say there is still major appetite for urban living and apartments and the condo market has been grossly underserved/under-marketed for about a decade. I think what feels different for me with this boom is that the housing prices haven't go...
