Re: Izzy's Ice Cream Factory

They finished the exterior painting yesterday, including the Izzy's red dot. Makes a big impact. Also, I spoke with owner Jeff last night and they're hoping to have their official grand opening around Labor Day, but it's not yet set in stone. Here are some pics of the new paint job: http://millcityt...

Re: Vikings Stadium

Planning for this is further along than the Strib reports. According to a high ranking, trusted source, this will be a mixed use development that includes residential. No decision on whether the residential will be rental or owner occupied. Look for tax subsidies to be the main point of contention.

Re: Park Vista (2nd Street South & 11th Avenue South)

New name for Park Vista - "Stonebridge Lofts" I spoke with Stanton on Friday and he shared the new name. Since it is no longer directly across from a park, it makes sense to rename it. Project should be complete by spring 2014. Pics of the excavation underway - http://millcitytimes.com/news/stonebri...

Re: Izzy's Ice Cream Factory

Using the logic that was batted around when this project was first proposed one would think the condo owners across the street wold be outrage to wait until June or July!! Outrageous! :D When the project was first proposed it was for a production facility only. Hardly an amenity for residents and v...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

Oh yeah, a quick fix to get more of the right parties interested in DTE would be to make sure that you make it a point to regularly support businesses there. I know I've spent a decent amount of money in the neighborhood, and by a good margin, at Zen Box, but I do head out to other destinations, al...

No ice cream until then? :cry:
That's the latest...they want it to coincide with the anniversary of their founding. It will be a nice amenity for both residents and visitors of the neighborhood.

Here's a visual of what I'm talking about. Which highway overpass do you like better: A? http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p283/Columbusite/capmpls.jpg or B? One connects neighborhoods and increases both of their destination factors, while the other scars the urban environment and isolates two nei...
