Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

Is there a medical device company that needs a regional HQ here that isn't already HQ'ed here?

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

The Boomers begin with births in 1946, so the oldest boomers are 72. If you already made it to age 72, your life expectancy is about 14 more years. (source)

So the beginning of the "wave" is still a good ways away, and that's just accounting for the oldest members of the generation.

Re: New Bell Museum/Planetarium

120 seats seems awfully small for the Pink Floyd Laser Light Show. :roll: But since you mention it, the new planetarium will offer state-of-the-art projection capabilities that go beyond astronomy. Future content will include presentations of scientific research across disciplines, such as a look d...

Re: New Bell Museum/Planetarium

We are about one year away from the opening of the new Bell Museum, a museum dedicated to all things bells. No, actually it's Minnesota's natural history museum and planetarium. Great news: A generous(!!) couple made a $5 million gift to name the planetarium. They did not want PR, but you will recog...

New Brighton? Stockyard and rail center that seems to match the Robbinsdale and Hopkins examples. Actually just a bit older than those two.
