Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

The Sholom Home has finally been purchased and the new owner intends to turn it into ~150 studio and 1br apartments. Should be a good benefit for the surrounding area, although as a member of D10, I expect to see significant pushback due to concerns about traffic and parking.

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

I hear the Como Dockside space will be replaced by the owners of Republic. Any confirmation of this? You would be correct, but things are still getting approvals. From here : A team led by veteran Twin Cities restaurateur Matty O'Reilly is in line to take over management of the Como Lakeside Pavili...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I would love to see a rapid bus line go up Hennepin and through St. Paul/Falcon Heights/Maplewood via Larpenteur, intersecting with the A line and East 7th line. It wouldn't hold up traffic too much, and would bring some much needed transit to one of the biggest transit deserts in the metro. Current...

Re: Amazon's New HQ?

I don't think Target or Best Buy was a factor one way or another. Looking at jobs available here, most are in AWS. Amazon apparently isn't interested in siphoning retail talent, but instead tech talent.

Re: Amazon's New HQ?

Do we think Target was a factor one way or another here? I think most would have had us in the top 20 finalists, unless climate was the key factor. I doubt it. I have a feeling it was because the locations MN picked weren't that appealing outside of 280/University, and the tax breaks were minimal a...

Re: Big Daddy's BBQ redevelopment

As long as I can still smell Big Daddy's BBQ at 7am when I get on the lightrail, this is great news.

Re: Amazon's New HQ?

You can disable javascript on Biz Journal articles and it removes the paywall. It's just evidenceless speculation. I'd be very surprised if Amazon purchases Target. They seem to have purchased Whole Foods because they were struggling to break into grocery, and I don't see them struggling to break in...
