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...

Re: Electric Scooters

I was in Salt Lake over the weekend and noticed a bunch of electric Razor scooters with seats and small baskets. Didn’t even realize Razor still existed or that they were in the scooter share market but they are:

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. Tearing it down to make a wider connection to the riverfront don't seem that amazing of a plan that it be worth wasting money te...

I really hope we see two buildings on this space, so we can fix that sharp turn on the Cedar Lake Trail! However still leave a trail ending segment to go over the railroad bridge that one day when were ready to expand the trail across the river. .000000001% chance of that ever happening. They'll ne...

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...

And downtown daycares should strongly be encouraged if you want to continuing bringing more residents in.
I just asked if the first floor was appropriate. Nobody’s talking about banning daycare downtown.
Did I say you were? No.

First floor is absolutely appropriate for a daycare /thread.

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

Is daycare a good use for a first floor? As opposed to a second or higher floor? Yes.
