Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

If I remember correctly the group that built the Double Tree hotel on Huron were about to break ground on this site but at the last minute they struck a deal with the UMN to swap the land for some of the land the current hotel is located. The block was cleared at least partially for the hotel. Ultim...

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

I came across some good news for the Hi-Lake intersection last night. Evidently a public art installment is coming in October. "What will emerge in the fall is a series of large-scale monarch butterflies on both sides of the sidewalk on E. Lake St. at the Hi-Lake intersection. A combination of steel...

Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

It certainly seems that things are lining up for phase 2 of this project to be underway next year. MPS will be out of the existing building by late November and the first residents are scheduled to move into the new residential building December 1st. According to an article in the most recent Corcor...

Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

MPS has to start paying rent at the old ABE building I believe in November so they are incentivized to be out of there by this fall. The old building does need to be demolished and the whole area will be regraded down to near street level for the next phase to get started. Phase 2 is supposed to inc...

Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

I was just looking at the plan for subsequent phases on the site and there's eventually going to be 3 more 6 story buildings and 1 at 4 stories. That's going to be a lot of housing within a block of the LRT station. I was also just at Target the other day and paused for a moment in the parking lot t...

Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

For the phase 1 of housing at the L&H site they built up the east side first. That side has been topped out for a month or so and there is already a lot of siding on. They are putting up the top level of the west side right now, I'm guessing it will be done by next week. The building is scheduled to...

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

I don't think there is going to be a point where Hi-Lake is "all torn up" anytime soon. Any of the major tier 3 changes identified in the Hi-Lake study are years out if they happen at all. Some of the tier 1 improvements from that study may happen this construction season but they would mostly be re...

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

Minneapolis recently released a "Draft Action Plan" as part of Phase 2 of the Hi-Lake interchange study. http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/cip/2016/hilakestudy It seems to have prioritized some possible improvements from the engineering study and report that came out in 2016. The improvements are sepa...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Does anyone here know much about the Corridors of Commerce program? I'm wondering if we know how soon the scoring will be out for the submissions for this year and what sort of timeline approved projects would be on for construction? Hi-Lake is such a major blemish on South Mpls it would be great to...

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

A couple of clarifications about this project. The building receiving the addition is the Transportation and Safety Building. The building currently has 3 occupants - UMPD on the first floor, the Center for Transportation Studies on the second floor, and Parking and Transportation Services on the th...
