Wouldn't they just have the skyway enter on the north and then use the 2nd level walkway on the east side of the atrium inferno of the Nicollet Mall windows... then have the skyway cross the mall on the south east corner and connect it with 365 Nicollet building...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Just start over. They don't NEED anything. It's not some amazing project the city should bend over backwards for. Agreed. This feels like extortion. They know that they city has had a no sign above 50 feet policy and now they make it a deal breaker after the city has gone out of their way to extend...

To clarify, I thought Rosedale has long had the highest sales per square feet.
Yes this is correct. It has been a top grossing per sq ft mall in MN and it is seen nationally as a top performing mall.

Interesting future opportunity - when Dolly Fitterman owned it and ran the Fitterman Gallery it was a great space... would be great if it became some king of public space. It was a really great gallery space.

"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.

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...

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”.
