Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

Anyone who compares the population of just Minneapolis, without St. Paul, against the population of any other city, isn't really comparing apples to apples, even if you disregard the suburban annexation issue, which I don't think you can btw. Minneapolis and St. Paul make up the central core of the ...

Re: Lowa46 - 46th & Hiawatha Cub Foods Mixed Use

I think there is an issue with the power lines overhead right at that spot where the restaurant building would go that prevents it from going any higher. There was talk about maybe being able to move the lines or use a different support for them, but not sure it was doable at a price that the develo...

Re: Lowa46 - 46th & Hiawatha Cub Foods Mixed Use

So...given the 'For Lease' sign on the remaining ground floor space, I gather this has been definitively cancelled...but I can't find any mention of this after early 2018. Does anyone know what happened to Chef Eric Harcey's plan to open a restaurant in what was at that time called the Capp? https:...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Hmmm, doesn't look like they are going to have it all done in 10 days to me. Aldi is supposed to be open for business on 12/13? I guess if they have the inside done already, they will just have the outside to finish and clean up. Have you seen where the deliveries will be made? I haven't noticed any...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

As far as the surface parking goes, I'm pretty sure that is just using the existing space for now and it will eventually be replaced by mixed use buildings, most likely with underground parking in some of the buildings.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

When this site was chosen, my first reaction was that it will feel suburban, I mean it's on a strip mall. A lot of the existing infrastructure is suburban. I think the only Culver's in either Minneapolis or St. Paul is right there. I like Culver's btw, but you typically only find them in the suburbs...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

My first reaction to seeing the Wendy's remodel was rats, it's not being torn down. This means it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Looks like some remodeling work going on at the building just south of the Riverview Theater along 42nd Ave S. Not sure what might go in there, but it's been vacant forever. Perfect spot for a restaurant/food service.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

The wrap isn't as attractive as the drawings. I hope once it's fully covered it will look different, but so far it looks like the debris mesh covering you see on scaffolding during remodeling jobs.

Re: Arby’s Island

The triangle island in the middle of the intersection and the sidewalk along the building could use some heavy duty bollards. Not sure how common it is to see cars plow into the existing lot, but seems like the building would be a target for drunk or distracted drivers.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Pretty sure those initial estimates were extremely rough and very early on in the process. Lowest number I ever saw was 150M.

Re: Bunge Mill (SE Como)

I'm excited about this project and am glad they're keeping the tower. I also like the idea of the peace totem but... I'm hoping they do a bit better than "May Peace Prevail" in lime green, 1,000,000 pt Arial font. What are the odds that's just a placeholder and they hire an artist for the real thin...
