Re: Hennepin Avenue (Franklin to 36th)

The bite squad cars blocked both sides of the street yesterday while I was eating lunch at amazing Thailand... i really hate that block now - so barren... no cars now actually makes it all feel sterile and abandoned...a few tooth pick trees... I’m so disappointed.

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

I’m sure they think they’ve recreated the old building with their new structure... they haven’t.

Heard a rumor of 42 stories... don't quote me on that
I remember a proposed 25 story office building ... do you think this is office or residential?

This one bodes well for Aecom’s future work here! Hope they can get the St Paul project up and running!

Re: Nicollet 301 - 20 stories - ~200'(?)

I think the building itself looks OK, it just seems to make some odd choices. Live/work unit on the skyway, walk up units on 3rd street, loading dock for two semis, weirdly hidden sports courts that still face the street??? Idk. I'd like it a lot more over in Downtown East or Loring Park I think. O...

I clearly need to wear my glasses - the point about Stern was great - I’ve read his books from years ago and he was all about designing his buildings within an urban context. I really like this building but it is pretty “plopped” in that location.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

I have not had a chance to drive by this site for a long time. Is there much activity? Anyone have pictures that are current or recent? I've been watching other Stern towers go up and most of them look like scaled up or scaled down versions of 11. I have no doubt this will be a handsome tower but f...

Re: 301 Nicollet - Opus (details TBA on 6/10)

Yes - the building on the south half of the block is 365 Nicollet. I wonder if this is going to be the residential option or the office option... height would be great to meet the RBC tower...

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

I was wondering about that too... the lobby and ground level floor plan has gone thru a lot of modifications... I suspect there is not much available space.

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

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'

RBC has move - that ship has sailed... as an MBA with 20 years agency experience, RBC’s comment about the name on the top of the building being an important component of their global marketing land is a joke... it is not tent post strategy.... it is at best a “nice to have” but not a major focus for...
