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...

Any rumblings about this lately? We could use another job or two this spring.
Should start in the spring. They just secured a location to move the building temporarily.

http://m.startribune.com/sun-country-expands-to-canada-with-a-summer-route-between-msp-and-vancouver/565986701/ Sun Country starting a route to Vancouver next summer. I'm excited to have another option to Vancouver. Hopefully it'll help keep Delta in check since pricing on this route can get crazy.

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...

But not here
To the same location as the West Elm store? No. To the location this entire thread is about? Yes.

The City of Lakes and Minneapolis Public Service buildings are good remnants of the period. I only hope they can find someone that would want to use them with out destroying the shells.
I'm in the camp of tear the Public Service building down. I dread every time I have to go in that building.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

So ridiculous, there is literally a parking ramp another government group wants to tear down. We would be better off letting them use that instead of building a new ramp.

Re: Rafter - 333 Hennepin Ave E (290' - 26 stories)

And when we enter into a recession, or if lenders merely become increasingly uneasy over concern that one might begin, you can bet that the ranks of pretty buildings that don't exist will grow. Fixed. At this point I'm hoping as many projects as possible break ground and get vertical before the eco...
