Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

My dad takes the parkway coming from Highland Park in St. Paul to my sister's at Lyndale & 54th. These changes will almost certainly push him to 62. One anecdote, for sure, but I don't think it's so unusual. Same ... frequently take parkway between Lynnhurst and Nokomis even though 62 is faster. It...

Re: Foundry Mixed-Use Development - 115-125 1st St N, 128 2nd St N, 128 1st Av N

From my own experience, parking in this neighborhood between 9:30am and 3pm during the week means circling the block/s for 30 minutes waiting for a spot to open or parking between T3 and the Twins stadium. There is a high demand that will only increase once "TMBR" construction starts.

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.

How did they manage to do 6 levels of wood? Are the top units lofted?
