Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

This guy managed to close two different restaurants located on the prime stretch of the North Loop in under two years. The second of the two was, of course, a hail mary Rojo just like the Nicollet version. I would take it as a badge of honor for the food scene in Minneapolis that we keep rejecting h...

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N (Uncancelled)

They have other properties in the neighborhood (along 6th ave?), correct? Are those still being used?

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 36 stories / ~400'(?)

What's the history with the building currently used for public storage right next door to this? I assume that building has a history long before it's current use. Any shot it'll be repurposed back to something better than storage?

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: 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.

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

Any idea how much square footage these buildings are compared to the other Duffy buildings west of Washington?
