Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Beginning of Stone Arch Bridge towards downtown! Heavy foot traffic and one of the most photogenic spots in the city. I've always thought we needed a MPLS sign there.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

The bi-directional bikeway on 28th street is just temporary for the Greenway detour, right? Really makes you think how much more useful 26th/28th would be if they were two way. Obviously signal reworking at Lyndale, Nicollet, Dupont, etc. is the biggest barrier, but I think that investment would pa...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

To me, there's still substantial unmet demand for new condos in Downtown East and North Loop. This current construction boom has catered to millennials like me looking to rent. But my parents, looking to downsize and move back downtown from the suburbs into a condo don't have nearly the amount of op...

The talk on SkyscaperCity is that this project will, finally break ground in September.
Yes rumor is September 16th. There are also what looks to be facade samples onsite.

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

There is a trailer onsite now with a sign for Altitude Residences. A quick search says this is a building in Minnetonka. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://www.altitudemn.com/ Yeah I work over in Minnetonka and drive by that development as well as a host of others. I don't quite see how they're managing to charge r...

Re: Target Field Station (the Hotel) & Target Field Station (the Station)

That Holiday has been around for quite some time to my memory, but I totally agree with a couple points. We still need gas stations at this point as many people who live downtown still own cars. We also possibly shot ourselves in the foot with that law not permitting new gas station construction in ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Where is the other closure? I had a feeling the one in the library would close. I used to volunteer there and there was definitely an unsafe and hostile feeling there and around the building. Not to say that's a justified or correct feeling, but it was the feeling me and others I would volunteer wit...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

If we're having a hypothetical conversation, I could picture an Apple store put into North Loop with some accommodations to design to help it fit in to the space like they did with their location in Covent Garden, London. Granted I don't think we're cool enough to get that sort of special treatment ...

Re: Dinkytower - McDonalds redevelopment

Um, was not expecting this. My dad is the attorney representing one of the owners of the stores they would be redeveloping, but he said he's not remotely interested in selling. Looks like maybe they got to a deal with him? Anyways, as someone moving out of dinkytown next week after 4 years it's been...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

As a 22 year old I have almost no contextual reference, but does it feel like companies are beginning to move back into Minneapolis more than they have in recent years? It may be that I'm simply not paying attention to stories about companies moving out for the suburbs, but the headlines seem good a...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

It's safe to say it creates an uncomfortable feeling around the area, no matter if the people there are nice or not. I go by there all the time, usually no problems but have had some of them be confrontational towards me. But, the average person (take my parents for example) now avoid this area beca...

Re: Uptown (and LynLake) Development & General Topics

Interesting. I'm moving into Uptown in 2 weeks at Flux apartments and the parking was not included, and it was an additional $125/mo. Every other apartment in that area had parking cost extra and all had full parking garages. One of the interesting things happening with my age group (I'm 22) is a lo...

My parents, who never ride the scooters anywhere, were very comfortable riding the bikes. The larger tir...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

This may get me in trouble, but I'd just like to hear some opinions on this. Don't get me wrong, I'm very empathetic towards the homeless and feel for the horrible situation they're in. But, is it possible this end of Nicollet will continue to struggle because of the crowd that hangs around that area?
