Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

Units might be small now but this is a PT concrete frame and the interior partitions can be modified or removed to combine units in future.

They could probably fill this place in a few years with Target employees alone.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

This is a potential K-Mart moment. You know, when 20 or 30 years from now people complain, "How could this horrible thing have been built...and in this spot!?" and then others dig into the history to explain how it sort of made sense at the time. A bit of a stretch don't you think? The land this wo...

They poured the 1st elevated parking slab for the 128 2nd St N / 128 1st Ave N building. It is moving pretty quickly now that foundations are done.

Re: Archive Apartments (Not West Elm Hotel & Condos) - 102-120 1st Street N

I'm surprised they can go that deep (4 levels underground). They hammered out a significant amount of bedrock from the project site at 128 2nd St N / 1st Ave N. That is only 2 levels underground and a block away.

Roof level reduced 480' to 432'. Despite that I think it looks improved.

Re: Washington and Portland Mixed Use - 22 stories

The building code requirements triggered by a fire station at the base of a 22 story residential building ... seems tricky and expensive.

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'

First glance, I really like it, especially considering all the challenges of the site and different uses. They have even incorporated structure for a future trolley / streetcar line which explains the curved building line at the landscape plaza at corner of Washington Ave and Nicollet. A bit disappo...

Re: Legacy Condominiums - 121 12th Ave S (187' - 17 Stories)

I think it's deceiving looking at the Eleven site plan. The tower itself is quite slender and won't obstruct views like the base footprint suggests.

Re: Rex 26 - 2601 Lyndale Ave S

Yes, there is usually some form of opposition to development. There are usually proponents to development as well. It is a balancing act. There are a number of recent examples where the developer did not win but I guess we are ignoring those for the sake of your hissy fit.

Re: Alatus Residential Project - 228 South 12th Street

I believe the tower footprint is likely due to the economic sweet spot for the type of construction and overall height (30-story towers with post-tensioned concrete slabs and a concrete shear wall core centered in the tower). A simple corridor around the core to access 6 to 9 units. Any larger footp...
