No. There's a different rendering in the article just a few posts up.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Definitely a lot of parking, but nice looking building on a difficult lot. I could imagine the parking being helpful if trying to develop the parking lot just to the north though as well. (At least it's below grade next do a tail trench?)

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

It's actually a really small building for 10 stories. Pretty good scale for this area I think.

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

Maybe just naive hope on my part, but it could be a cool sign that adds to the skyline. When I say this, I’m thinking specifically of the 1st National Bank sign in St Paul. It’s tough for me to think of St Paul without it. On a silly note, maybe they could put the weather ball on the sign!!!! Lol T...

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

It's weird that this site still has to carry its 'iconic' baggage. If this is a mediocre development, then... what is everything else that's been built in the last two decades? I mean, this will literally be the best high-rise building built in Minneapolis since at least 2007 (Carlyle), and I'd arg...

Just start over. They don't NEED anything. It's not some amazing project the city should bend over backwards for.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Well I agree with them that just posting a lower speed limit there won’t make it safer. But the conversation can’t end there. Surely the city can try some tactical urbanism to force drivers to slow down—add a jog in the street, paint the whole block with stripes to let drivers know that it’s a cros...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I would hope the block can develop in 2 or 3 separate parcels. I'd really like some retail on the corner diagonal from gold medal park.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

People with money can also 2 hour Amazon most things to their apartment, I don't think the concept of having a car is directly related to where retail is. People want the independence and autonomy associated with it, it's very ingrained and will take generations to change.

I haven't taken any pictures, but there are cool details all over the project now. Interesting bases to all the columns that reach the sidewalk etc etc. Nice project for sure.

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

I think it will be a beautiful building, I hope the new developments along Washington help it connect into the skyline a little bit. It's going to be very isolated over there.

Is there an art installation happening across from the library? There is a massive something being built on scaffolding with lifts.
It's called nimbus, the previous post has a link to some info about it, looks pretty cool

Big rate hike? It's 15 dollars a month - For those customers who did have a cheaper level but for the majority of their customers, myself included we were already paying 50 a month for 100mbps, and we're now getting a free upgrade to 300mbps. I can't complain. I've always had great service from usi,...

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

This will directly block the remaining viewshed left of ING and the Grain Belt sign. I don't argue for views much, but this is all too wrong. The skyways ruin ALL view-sheds in Minneapolis. One of their greatest downfalls. I would disagree with that, I think it adds to the view. It's an architectur...
