Re: Encore - 935 2nd Street South

I assume you are moving- either in a vehicle, bike or even walking to give you the shimmering effect. Also, I concur with others that the effect occurs on all buildings north of the stadium. I understand why many people would find the light very invasive, but I like it.

Re: 800 Washington Ave - 14 stories - 173' (Guthrie Ramp liner development: Reloaded)

I really like having something unique from any other project in town. Glad they are trying something new. But a few concerns, as BBMplsMN stated, access via Guthrie ramp could be awful. I used to live in what is now called Bolero Flats across from the Orchestra Hall which has shared ramp access thro...

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N (Cancelled)

Sounds like the most logical solution is reuse as office space with decent sized floor plates. Why force something that’s not meant to be?

Re: Washington and Portland Mixed Use - 22 stories

Getting from the parking ramp to the market rate bld seems really difficult (elevator to outside porte cochere) unless you are in the underground parking area, and impossible if you are trying to get to affordable 6 story portion- which seems strange since the ramp and 6 story share a common wall. ...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 43 stories / 526'

Noticed that the interior dimensions for the 14th floor are 5 feet wider than the 9-13th floor, but the GSF for both floors are the same. Very odd- assume just a CAD typo. Overall, very impressive (honestly, quite shocking, but in a in a good way).

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

Ugly is subjective. I personally like them. They are quirky maybe, kind of like the airport carpet at pdx. I agree- I think the water motif is just fine. The biggest negative being that the white lettering doesn't read well on top of a white and blue back ground, plus the signs have faded in some l...

I assume that HNA Group, the buyer of the Carlson Hotels division, would move the staff to 33 South Sixth since they own the building. Makes sense to fill their own building instead of leasing from someone else. http://www.costar.com/News/Article/HNA-Holding-Group-of-China-Acquires-33-South-Sixth-Mi...

It's possible that he was funding the project directly from his own financial reserves (and this would be consistent with stories that have circulated around here about Stanton just rolling the proceeds from one project into the next). With his death, even if there were a will in place, I could ima...

Re: Peavey Plaza

What's snarky is the constant battering of its construction after businesses chose to pay less for the project than originally intended. This forced the city to go with the lowest bid. By the way, it wasn't a personal attack. I know you're a good guy Mike. It was intended to give hell to people pos...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Closing the lock was never about the carp anyways. It has everything to do with redeveloping the "blighted" industrial riverfront north of the locks. That much was made clear if you attended any of the "re-imagine the riverfront" workshops in winter 2015. May be true, but the Ford lock is maintaine...

Re: Bunge Mill (SE Como)

My first reaction- it is very odd, like an awkward one liner that falls flat, but it is creative thinking for a very difficult component- which I support.
