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

I mentioned this in the "Eleven" building thready, but I was snooping around on the MPCA "what's in my neighborhood?" interactive map and I see that this project received a recent construction wastewater permit. I think that would be a necessary step prior to beginning construction, which could mean...

Re: Transit Crime

I don't take the green line often, but the last three times I was riding it I saw different people smoking one thing or another. The last time, there was hardly anyone on the train except me and my three and a half year old and two people came from the other side of the train, sat down across from u...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

Yes. I walked by on Saturday and can confirm they are actively building out that space for Trader Joes. There were grocery store style refrigerated display cases and shelves lined up already.

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

So basically it is just going to be super plain looking now. Seriously, the spire and the mullion pattern were like the biggest part of their architectural pitch... The City report indicates the new design no longer needs the spire because it is more architecturally significant than the previous on...

Re: Ritz Residences - 365 Nicollet Mall (334' - 30 stories)

The construction of 365 Nicollet from the 17th floor of 4Marq. I'm curious why they took the crane down 3 weeks ago but they haven't put wall panels on the top floors since then. I doubt Opus ran out of money... I think they are finished with the precast panels and only have windows to install. The...

Re: Schafer Richardson project - 217 North Chestnut

Does anyone know if this was approved? I have been keeping up on the St. Paul planning commission minutes and don't recall seeing anything. I walked by today and there is fencing up and digging is well underway. Could be for soil contamination?

Re: Alatus Residential Project - 228 South 12th Street

Woah. This is a Magney, Tusler and Setter building... There might be some pieces that should be saved, even it it's just making the courtyard into a pocket park. God that floor plan is awful. An exit right into the 3rd Ave bike lanes, 3 massive community spaces (?), a ton of ground floor PARKING, a...

Re: D Line - Fremont/Emerson/Chicago Rapid Bus

I've been wondering how this line is going to stay on schedule as it goes southbound from HCMC to Lake Street. For the past two weeks I've taken the 94 from St. Paul leaving at 3:30, gotten off at HCMC, and tried to either walk or take the 5 all the way to S 35th St. Because cars have been backed up...

Re: CPM North Loop Office Building - 419 Washington Ave N / 420 N 3rd St

Isn't the ground level pretty active with retail space? I think the parking will be mostly hidden by the office space, even at the 2-5 levels.

Re: CPM North Loop Office Building - 419 Washington Ave N / 420 N 3rd St

This is underway. I drove by last night and there are jersey barriers surrounding the site and they have already started driving piles. I believe this was approved and the appeal denied.

Re: Subsidized and/or Affordable Housing

Great article by Richard Reeves at Brookings on the impact of exclusionary zoning on inequality.

Re: Mozaic (all phases)

The white material on the southwest side looks like a match for the material used on the parking ramp. Can't imagine that getting much praise from people on this board (including me) once it starts going up. If Opus is constructing this, then it would fit perfectly with their (lack of) style. I do t...
