Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

When this was announced I was discussing it with one of the realtors involved in the listing, and he said they were getting a lot of calls about availability, and they were primarily asking about the most expensive units first.

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

From my experience living in that neighborhood, there were a lot of working couples in my building that both worked in the burbs. Pretty much have to have two cars in that situation. We also had a child there for a while... also needed two cars.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

How easy is it to get from the suburbs to this part of the North Loop via public transportation?

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

If Target wants to, they have a pretty easy case to make. The vehicle (video board) is already there, and if the city didn't say no to RBC, they sure as hell won't say no to the most important corporation to downtown.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

This is clearly a bluff... one that the city needs to call. There's no way RBC gets this far along in the process with the knowledge that this was a low probability approval. At this point, what does it hurt them to talk tough to try to get it?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I'd love to know how the restaurant ever got off the ground. From the day it was announced it was pretty clear (and obvious from the day it opened) that they weren't going to make it to the one year mark. Who puts money into, or loans money to, something like that?

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N

I always thought that big garage would be an amazing beer / food hall concept. Couldn't be a better location or historic building for it.

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N

Always thought the shorter brick building would be perfect for some type of food / beer hall.

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

I think you can chalk that up to the fact that no one else was willing to compete with him. When you're the only one in the city building condos, you're probably going to save some money on exterior design.

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

Did they shove a tower from one proposal and the base from another together at the last second? Not sure how else it would end up like that.

Re: Nicollet Mall

The lights on 5th, crossing the tracks, are terrible. Every morning people stand on all four corners looking around because no people, cars, trains, or buses are moving or seem to have a light. Seems to be a trend as the pedestrian signals on 3rd Ave N around the light rail are terrible too.
