looks like it'll cost 850K to get your foot in the door. 1,400 sq ft, 1 bed plus den with southeast view.
Suddenly a lot of the other downtown places look affordable

I think I spot a [emoji911] up.
Nope, no tower cranes onsite yet, just a truck crane & pile driver. They're working on foundation supports against the old Foster building.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

I thought the point of this ramp was that they would actually build *on top* of the ramp itself, and not just on the skinny lot next to it? Does anyone else remember this or am I making up memories? That was the plan, the ramp was built for it and as of last year the architect confirmed they had re...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Again—I'm not saying the city should deny all of these buildings unless they get rid of all their parking, rah rah rah. I know that's just not politically feasible. But I am saying that I think a lot of these buildings would do fine with 10%-20% less parking or maybe one fewer level of structured u...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Solhem has been reducing parking ratios on their own at their more recent downtown/NL projects, like OX-OP and Borealis, after finding that they just couldn't manage to rent more than about .9 spaces per unit (for projects like this, I'm sure the Eleven will manage to sell every spot they build).

Re: Suburbs - General Topics

A lot of storage units are now being used for inventory storage. I've seen delivery companies use them as a pick up/drop point for items. I'm sure most are still overflow of people's personal items, but it's an interesting trend.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

Hypothetically, would we be be willing to trade this ramp for the USPS giving up theirs? I would absolutely, without question, rather let the Fed build their new ramp over keeping the USPS ramp in place forever. The USPS ramp site is going to be a great park / transition down to the river someday. ...

I'm relatively new to this forum and these issues. Are there people who think the existing skyways should be removed, or new ones should not be built?

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I'm an avid and regular skyway user. I definitely walk farther to more things than I would absent skyways. But they are problematic, in that they are not really public, and thus subject to private gatekeepers, and those same gatekeepers are an obstacle to making ingress/egress easier. Regardless, t...

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

This is nearly a block-sized parcel, correct me but this space looks large enough that it deserves a block full of potential. Put in the parking, but leave space for someone to later construct a hotel or housing. Line the structure up with grid, let the future housing wrap into the odd shaped space...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

I don't think there is - even the city office building went through the CPC process, and the Fed isn't government, exactly. I don't see any reason why a parking ramp here wouldn't be subject to the "no stand-alone parking structures downtown" ordinance, even if the Fed is proceeding as if it won't ...
