Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

There is a balance that needs to be found between effective social distancing to curtail this virus as fast as possible while still supporting these businesses in any way we can so they can stay open at a limited capacity. These businesses have lots of employees that will simply be laid off and be s...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

North Loop has been doing a good job at spreading awareness, but for those of us who can afford it, it's our job to go patron these places during this time to help them get through this.

Re: Impound Lot

Can someone remind me what the planned redevelopment of this area is? I vaguely remember there being a row of like 6-story apartments being proposed here.

Wow yeah I wouldn't mind that. Urban market, whatever that means, could be useful for people living around Nicollet.

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

I think I'm in the minority here, but I just don't think buses do a great job at getting car owners out of their cars - if that's one of our larger goals. aBRT is great to increase bus ridership among existing bus riders, but rail in any form does a good job of luring people out of their cars or fro...

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

That would be great for the city they are making slow progress on this. This paired with the Midtown LRT would go a long way in making our train system functional for residents of the city to get to the places they want to go, not just commuters from the suburbs.

Re: Daymark Uptown (Sons of Norway site) - 3014 Holmes Ave S

Kitchen Window also provides things that residents need on a somewhat regular basis. I visit there monthly to get stocked up on Nespresso pods and will occasionally buy other things. I think the point is valid - the area is transitioning to resident based uses. Of course some destination shopping co...

Re: Daymark Uptown (Sons of Norway site) - 3014 Holmes Ave S

Put....in....a....BREWERY. Me and my buddies live in the area and spend many friday's in North Loop or NE to hit some breweries. We would be more than happy to stay near our apartments if Uptown put one in. This seems like a guaranteed winner to me. Also agree with the above comment that we are just...

Couldn't this be a good thing if they change the route to something more beneficial to residents? Or does this push the timeline back 5+ years?

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Yes we definitely haven't seen the insane amounts of appreciation that some of the other cities around the world have. But, Minneapolis and the Twin Cities market is widely seen as very strong. That's why you've seen foreign companies buying up some of our most iconic office buildings. Wouldn't doub...

Re: Broadway Station Redevelopment - 2025 West River Rd

Okay I'm relatively new to the whole city-planning thing as I'm 23 and just found out about this stuff as a hobby, but what the heck are we thinking? Why would not every development along the river include some space for a restaurant, brewery, bar, winery, distillery with patio space so people could...

When do they usually report population figures? Always excited to see what sort of growth we've experienced over the past year.

Re: 200 Central (2019) - 293' / 27 Stories

I wish they'd bring back that light-bar from the 12th street apartments proposal. I think as dumb as it sounds, that simple addition would have made us all pleased with the design even with the reduction in height relative to Alia. It would add something unique to the building.

Re: Alia Tower - 200 Central - 483' / 40 Stories

@Twincitizen agreed. As long as this gets built, and relatively soon, I will be more than happy to see a 300 ft building that I still think looks nice rise on that side of the river. Will continue to add to that skyline and add density the area.

Re: Vicinity - 205 Park Avenue (Mill District Ramp Parcel)

Sister lives directly next door, they can not wait to have a bakery and hopefully get that brewpub. Those would be two huge pieces that would make Downtown east feel like a real neighborhood. I have to say - seeing this building in person I love it. The design and materials are interesting which fit...
