Re: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments - 18 stories - 188'

Drove by yesterday on my way home from work, looks like the crane assembly has begun.

Drove by today and there was a crew on site, maybe taking soil samples.

Re: Northside - General Topics

Fencing has been put up around the former Estes Funeral home at Plymouth and Penn in N. Mpls. The new much better looking building opened up across the street about three months ago. If I'm not mistaken, the clinic next door will be expanded on that site. I'm hoping for some retail and apartments to...

Re: Mortenson / USBank site - 333 Hennepin Ave E (290' - 26 stories)

This building shows up really well from Plymouth avenue in N Mpls, once you cross over the freeway bridge. NE is developing it's own skyline, can't wait for Alia to get finished. As far as this building goes, I'll wait to see how it interacts with the sidewalk. We can probably all agree that it is b...

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

FINALLY!!! I love that this buiding will be getting started. All these NEBL Nimby's can move to Stillwater if they want a quaint little river town. This will do nothing to destroy historic character, they knew that all along.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC Plaza Jr.) - 30 stories - 458'

Nah, the guy on here who was pushing the conspiracy always referred to 500'. It's based around a fealty to the height of IDS. I would hope that there would be no fealty to the height of IDS, it hasn't been the tallest since Capella was finished out at 776 1/2 feet tall. Capella of course was never ...

Re: O'Gara's Development - 164 Snelling Ave N

This sentence: "There’s a new Dunkin’ Donuts being proposed for Snelling and Hague" was in this article: http://www.citypages.com/news/a-st-paul-starbucks-and-the-drive-thru-from-hell/479469783 . Is that related? I wish Dunkin Donuts would open some locations in downtown Minneapolis. Just spent a w...

Thank you Grant, for posting the pics. I love the random openings and modern design, and being being very open to the street.

Seriously? This is "too tall"? Why are some people in this city so afraid of tall buildings?

Re: Art and Architecture Building Redevelopment - 3338 University Ave SE - 17 Stories / 195'

Another exciting addition to this corridor. I love the massing, the location, the colors. It will be a better use of this tract of land, and of course, bring more people to Prospect park. The Witches Tower is up high enough that I don't think views are going to be affected too much. If the new build...

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

Last week I went to Union Market in Washington DC, it's a huge food hall with a great variety of food vendors and lots of seating. I'm hopeful that this project turns out in a similar way.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

There must be more in there than a loading dock, right? It effectively doubled the size of the building. Work used to take me in there weekly (20 years ago)- quite a bit of the riverfront section is an enclosed double height dock designed for tractor trailers. I marked the approx. size here. There ...

Re: What wrong with our parks?

I would lobe to see something like Bryant Park in New York, here in Minneapolis. Been through it, and hung out in it, a few times in the last coupe of years. There was a place to get coffee and light snacks, performance space, lots of trees, and most importantly, plenty of places to sit and have con...

I remember this. Skyscraperpage has a diagram of it, just not sure how acurate it is to what was being proposed at the time.

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

Those renderings are pretty old. About 6 months now. Yeah, hard to really know what they have up their sleeve architecturally at this point, until we get updated renderings. The city initially wanted something "iconic" here and it seems to be falling away from that everytime the renderings get upda...
