Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 18-20 stories

Why is it that most of these beautiful old buildings were destroyed in downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul when in Europe - if they dodged war - they were maintained and still persist to today and add lots of character to their cities? I feel like the Twin Cities' historic charm was lost when these bu...

Re: Nicollet Mall

Honestly a tourist will walk up and down the mall and think it’s nicely updated and modern but there’s not much to do here. It’s about as exciting as downtown Louisville

Thanks for the update. This is great news. The Edina water tower and Westin will have a new buddy in the skyline.

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

I'm surprised too.. the marketability of a Four Seasons tower for ultra-luxury condos should far exceed that of an equally nice stand-alone residential tower. While I applaud UP for this risk-taking (risk-averse?) investment, it's hard not to compare this Four Seasons development in a *prime* downto...

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

Many of our metro's hospitals were built in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s when the Twin Cities and its suburbs were growing. Think VA, Methodist, Abbott, HCMC, UMMC, Regions, FV Southdale, etc. and their architecture from the times. They were built well and big. It's hard to make a case to demolish and ...

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

That is still in discussion. My hunch is yes. In place, the Mayo area would be more student housing focused. It was something like "more housing along the river, hospital and clinics closer to the Huron Blvd freeway exit."

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

Current discussions include a brand new hospital adjacent to the new Clinics and Surgery Center, hence the recent land purchases by the U Regents. There are talks to replace the current hospital with student housing. The Mayo building is a "do not invest" property and is slated for demo in the next ...
