Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

Did we have record of the Ramada along 35W and Industrial becoming a "Delta Hotels | Marriott" hotel? Yikes how many marquees does one company need? http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@cped/documents/webcontent/wcmsp-210589.pdf The blue towers (actual paint job, not the concept drawings...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/news/2016/03/17/costco-northeast-minneapolis-store.html Apparently CostCo bought a warehouse at 3311 Broadway St. NE on Sept 1st. Say it could fit a CostCo store, which would honestly be great if they could re-use an older industrial building instead of buildin...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

I asked a WC employee today...the most recent they have heard is July. I assume they’ll tear the old Holiday down first and remove gas tanks, etc. Does the new White Castle overlap the old one? Or will they be able to build the new restaurant first then close and remove the old one afterwards? Sent...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

Stopped today for gas. I live close by but always avoided the old station. I’ll be back here! Let’s move ahead and get the new restaurant built! Not a huge WC fan, but will be nice to have this all done!

Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

Don't people have shades on their windows? Shades, yes, but they aren't solid blackout shades. More of a black mesh that allows views outside when closed on a sunny day. Also allows the blue/white lights from NordHaus into my bedroom at night. The billboard at 4th and Central can be annoying too if...

Re: Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

Some friends that live in the Cobalt building were complaining about the lights, I gave them an "ahhh ummm yeahhh sucks..." while thinking in my head, Looks great! I live in the Cobalt (but don't think I'm your friend)....I'm not overjoyed with the lights. I agree they look nice as a building featu...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

I'm pretty sure that they took about 4-5 swipes at the building to "start demolition" but have done nothing since. Just a statement to say they won and are moving forward. That was exactly my feeling. Now no one can claim the building needs to be saved. In fact, they may be ordered to completely de...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

Does anyone know if the Costco Business Center will have a gas station? Drove by there yesterday and was surprised by the amount of dirt being pushed around. More than I would have expected for a simple parking lot repaving. Are they burying tanks? Would love to have a Costco Gas station close by.

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

I also drove by the Costco site on Broadway this past weekend and saw the beginnings of work. Glad to see from the permit that it appears to actually be Costco getting the building ready. Not sure what selection the "Business Center" will have, but it will still be great to have access to some thing...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

There's is a proposed redevelopment of the Holiday/White Castle in the upcoming Marcy-Holmes land use committee agenda. This is the one right at the crossroads of Hennepin and Central. The person listed to talk about the "redevelopment" is a representative from Holiday, so don't get your hopes up. ...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

Do you have to sign up before you get to see what channels you get and get details about the service? Website won't let me do anything but sign up for my "free" trial. https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/07v6EVzkK4uzby8Y2OIU3DKdOzo=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file...

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

St Anthony Main theater is close to downtown and can be walked from the light rail or just a quick bus connection across the river. Smaller theaters but usually showing the major new releases.

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I've been using the new DirecTV Now service. www.directvnow.com They have a special offer where you can get the normal $60 a month package for $35 forever if you sign up now. Plus they are giving a free AppleTV if you prepay 3 months of service. It only has Fox 9 for local channels in MSP, but I've ...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

I live in a condo in this area and am completely in favor of an expanded gas station and a car wash. With the number of housing units scheduled to be built in the area, there is a need for this. Expecting all of the residents of this area to drive elsewhere to get gas and wash their cars is not good...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

I didn't see any permits in the window, but there appears to be ongoing construction in the space next to Lu's in Red20. Based on the markings on the exterior wall, it appears that they're going to be installing an ATM and night deposit. Anyone know what this is? Walked by tonight and saw the ATM a...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

As someone who lives in this neighborhood, I have to say I like this potential development. The main reason I don't used that Holiday station much is the congestion of the site. With all of the additional housing about to be constructed, the residents will want to have a decent gas station in the ne...
