Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I wish the StarTrib would have added a little analysis or reporting to the story on the loss of parking excuse. For Lee’s to close and blame a loss of parking before that loss even happened is lame. At least wait until the change is reality and then assess if it’s affecting the business.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I love when people use the word "pristine" to describe an area they want to protect from development. It's a "pristine" paved bike trail ffs.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Permits are starting to show up on the Mpls website and a trailer is on site for the Graze food hall on the Bookmen condo land so I think it's really going to happen. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4913/46439596652_b7753ca922_c.jpg Trailer on site for the Graze development. by ZTR Norge , on Flickr

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Did the food hall ever get approved? and timeline for it? Do you mean Graze on the Bookmen site? I believe it was approved. It's been pretty quiet though... They were supposed to start construction early this past summer I think, but I'm hoping it's just an issue of logistics and planning have been...

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

*masonry expert* you just need to use a brick that is available in a thin veneer. So, not to belabor this point, but I was looking at the new Variant project, also in the North Loop, and it appears to be six stories of real brick over stick frame construction. Variant is absolutely real brick. I wa...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Be'Wiched Deli in the North Loop has closed (apparently their Plymouth location, too). It's too bad, it was a solid option for casual eats in the neighborhood. I'm not sure if it was rent-related, but I work in the TractorWorks building and our rent is quite high (we're coming to the end of our leas...

Re: Schafer Richardson offices & parking ramp - 1000 3rd St N (Zuccaro’s Produce building)

It may be related to the draft Minneapolis 2040 guidelines, which would prohibit residential development here - it's designated as a Production and Processing future land use category. It's unfortunate.... https://minneapolis2040.com/topics/land-use-built-form/ "Production and Processing areas are s...

Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

This one really bums me out. I know there are issues of landownership, so you can't force a developer to build their building on an already empty lot (like, right across the street!), but I wish there could have been some incentives to urge them to look elsewhere.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

The restaurant space at the Variant is going to be a First Draft Taproom & Kitchen, a pour-your-own place. I'm assuming the same company that's in Denver (when you google the name). The article is locked, but if you search the name and Minneapolis you can find the full article posted elsewhere... ht...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

So I did go to the open house for the repaving and pedestrian improvements projects. They had handouts of the preliminary paving plans that I imagine will be online soon. Lots of proposed trees, which will be nice. Pavers are proposed for 3rd Street N between 7th Ave N and 10th Ave N, and then 8th A...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

The sidewalks outside the TractorWorks Building and the warehouse condos across the street (801 Washington) are getting some planter spaces installed (jack-hammered out the concrete and prepping for plantings and/or trees, from the looks of it). Does anyone know if this is part of a city project? Or...
