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

I bet the best units sell FAST. Great timing for local boomers with some money (there are a lot of them) to "downsize."

Re: Legacy Condominiums - 121 12th Ave S (187' - 17 Stories)

Eleven's a slender and nice-looking tower. There are worse things to be looking at. Just be glad the two buildings aren't in the reversed places.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I think it's a tastefully-designed building that isn't done yet. Landscaping and surroundings will also make a big difference. This looks amazing at night. Compares favorably with other MLS stadiums I've seen.

Re: Sears Redevelopment

I just hope they can develop the parcel in phases and incrementally. Perhaps add some street grid, too? That is one massive lot in a part of town that desperately needs more residents.

Re: 2924 Bryant Ave S, 86 units

Nice infill project, and on a smaller scale than many others. Wish it were built on a surface lot but I'll take it.

60-75 unit building proposed for 520 Payne Ave site (near E 7th), currently an empty lot. On Facebook neighbors appear to not like that it will involve low-income housing tax credits.
Any idea if it would make it all the way to the corner at E 7th?

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

They're taking a couple of weeks to reclaim and remove fixtures and details to sell or preserve in new space. No demo yet on the buildings or the houses and no heavy equipment on site as of yesterday. Expect them to rush foundation and demo once the parts are removed since they're on a tight, miss-o...

Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

They cite the loop and say it's not intended as a circulator.

1. Is this accurate, and
2. If it isn't intended to be a circulator, should it be?

Personally, I'm much more likely to take transit, especially daily, when it's a single seat ride.

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

It's really an issue of wayfinding. It's virtually no different to take BV from downtown than it is to head up the 3rd street bridge. BV is confusing even once you're on it. Feels like they're always reconfiguring it. A few signs would make a difference.

Re: Kelly's Depot Development - 241 E Kellogg Blvd

Nothing to be lost architecturally, certainly. I really hope that Kelly's can live on in a first floor retail space, however. If they do so, it's a win-win.

Re: Crime

I wonder if they decided they just wanted a more premium location and this was a way to trigger a clause to kill the existing lease? Cynical perhaps, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some truth to this.

Re: Junction Flats - (643 Fifth Street North)

Can someone explain to me why the curb cut radius is so large for a development like this? Especially on a street that is plenty wide to allow for tighter turns into the parking in back? Irks me that we still put these high-speed, easy turn-in curb cuts here in an area that is actually pretty walkab...

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

It's a really, genuinely pleasant part of town -- provided you didn't drive there. I actually have to basically agree with the WF employees that they don't really get the benefit of the dense core unless they walk a number of blocks. It's a great park, though, and a bit of programming or services (l...
