Re: Work from home and road congestion

While many companies are managing to develop WFH in the current environment, I'm curious what the actual productivity will be. Many jobs can easily be done at home, but I know certain areas of our company are very dependent on in-person resources so numerous projects will be put on hold until we ret...

Re: Root District - Farmers Market / Royalston Station

But I'm looking at Google Maps and I don't even understand who would be pushing for the creation of this "district" right now - it's low-slung light industrial uses and social services facilities, on one of downtown's most disconnected street grids. It seems like their marketing is so far ahead of ...

Is there a reason to care?
The Hong Kong and Vancouver property markets a good reason to care.
There are also a lot of other factors at play, especially in Vancouver, that we will never see in the Twin Cities.

Re: Minneapolis Vehicle Equipment Violations

Just to be clear they don't actually have to issue the citation to justify the stop. It is at their discretion. Yes, it absolutely is a fishing expedition far too often, but this at least moves things in the right way and takes away a financial burden that is unnecessary. Especially since most peopl...

Re: Minneapolis Vehicle Equipment Violations

What's the problem? MPD will still pull over vehicles with equipment violations, they just won't give them a ticket that potentially adds a financial burden.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Operating a restaurant has always been brutal. The new wage dynamics will just make it harder. Anything on the fringe, that might have been able to fight their way through tough times in the past, will now most likely just go away. Bingo. Sure restaurants come and go, but it does raise eyebrows whe...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Sidenote though. It seems like the time left on the Wells Fargo data center may be limited. Looks like there are eyes on it for redevelopment. Dear god I hope so. That place hits the terrible design bingo. No street-level activation, not even windows. One door, set way back from the corner. Parking...

It amounts to about a 20% decrease. When businesses operate on the margins 20% is significant.
I'm quite certain that the Four Seasons will be just fine. This change was factored in a long time ago, and it's not like they're paying money for space they won't be able to use.

Re: RBC Gateway (Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 519'

Seems like the loss of the hotel rooms would effect the economics for Four Seasons? I'm curious if they thought they couldn't support more. The reduction from 280 hotel rooms to 222 is nothing new, they included the lower number in their press release in late spring. Also, the lower number is a non...
