Re: Cedar/Minnehaha/Franklin Intersection

Isn't that where they've currently got the temporary shelters they set up to try to help with the massive homeless tent city? I wonder if this building is supposed to be a next step in that to provide a more permanent place for them.

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Article about the new brewery taking over the old Harriet space. http://www.longfellownokomismessenger.com/a-new-brewery-is-hopping-into-the-minnehaha-ave-business-mix/ Oh good that's finally getting done. I was starting to wonder if something happened since it had been coming soon for quite a long...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

All the 'NYT Highlighted Comments' are people who are 'afraid they'll have to start locking their doors.' When the newspaper of the densest city in the country is siding with the NIMBYs, something's seriously messed up. Right? You'd think they'd realize this kind of stuff in New York. I used to liv...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Oh, and I forgot to note that ALDI also pays its employees a decent wage compared to other grocery stores. IIRC cashiers start out at around $14/hr or something and if you're a shift manager you're getting $18-$20 ish an hour. Not bad for grocery. I'd much rather support that over Cub which seems to...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

I don't quite understand the excitement about Aldi. I think it revolves around getting commodity food products for the lowest possible price. Is this correct? It's the price, but also the ease of shopping. ALDI's don't have a bunch of different brands of each thing. Most of it is all their particul...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

I think I've only been to an Aldi's once. How is their quality? Get what you pay for? They honestly are pretty decent. Never had any issues personally with any of their produce/meat etc compared to what I would get at a Cub. I particularly love getting gallons of milk for under 2 bucks, which seems...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

So the official opening is tomorrow but the ALDI was open today for kind of a preview day for the neighbors. Place looks fantastic. Different interior layout/design compared to the other ALDI's around the town. Lot more modern and bright. Layout is actually somewhat similar to your typical supermark...

ALDI as of this afternoon. You can't really see in this pic but it looks like some of the shelves in there are already stocked with various dry goods.

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Hmmm, doesn't look like they are going to have it all done in 10 days to me. Aldi is supposed to be open for business on 12/13? I guess if they have the inside done already, they will just have the outside to finish and clean up. Have you seen where the deliveries will be made? I haven't noticed an...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Looks like they took down all the chain link fencing that was in the parking lot in the last day or so, the ALDI is looking good and looking on track for that Dec 13th target Still no idea what is going in the other half of the building, anyone heard? The exterior is coming along and it looks like t...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Nice! Was there any word/sign on what is next to that new Aldi in the other part of the building?

Also, the Target remodel finished up in the last week or two. Major improvement, looks way better.

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

My first reaction to seeing the Wendy's remodel was rats, it's not being torn down. This means it's not going anywhere anytime soon. At least on the upside with the Wendy's update it won't look massively out of place with all the other new facades on Cub/Target and whatever the new Rainbow ends up ...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

Evidently along with whatever they are doing with the old Rainbow strip the Wendy's there is also getting an overhaul. Looks like they are updating the aesthetic of the interior and building to reflect the look of other newer Wendys instead of looking like the ones built in the 90's. As for the Rain...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Wow! It's worse in just about every way! Goes to show you that democracy is still accessible to wealthy landowners just like the founding fathers wanted. The plan is still a huge improvement over the status quo, but it's disappointing to see concessions being made entirely in the regressive suburba...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

Much to my surprise they are tearing down quite a bit more of the old Rainbow and strip than I had expected. From what my understanding was from the community meeting last year was that they were going to reuse/repurpose the old building for the new tenants instead of constructing something new. I g...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

They've started tearing off the front awning bit of the old Rainbow. Looks like the strip will be getting a face lift.

Well with the school on the backside basically done it looks like they are turning their attention towards the frontside with the old rainbow and parking lot. Came home today to find the strip of 27th ave that ran in front of the store front schooner to the intersection by wendy's is now fenced off ...

It also looks like Target has started mobilizing for their renovation project.
Are there any details on how long the renovation is expected to take? Looks like quite the setup with that whole corner of the parking lot taken up with the tents and materials.
