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...

Oooh, nice catch of the close up! I'm almost embarrassed at how giddy I am with these images.

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.

Interesting story on MNUFC's website about the PTFE exterior.

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...

Anybody know where dirt that is piling up east of Hiawatha and south of Lake St. is coming from?

Re: The Capp - 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use

For those who have been by this project lately, is it strange that they have a corner wall built up along the alley behind Falls Liquor before they have the foundation for the building in place? I wasn't expecting to see any walls above ground for a while.

Re: What wrong with our parks?

Minnehaha Falls Park is probably my favorite Minneapolis park. The addition of Sea Salt and subsequent pavilion renovation a couple years ago really polished up this place nicely. It feels like a European park to me. Not to mention Longfellow Gardens right next to it. I agree with Karen and also thi...
