Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

That's pretty extreme density. I also would like to have seen a third tower, however I'm very pleased by the second one. After being extremely underwhelmed by the first tower I'm happy the second one seems pretty put together even if it's not super remarkable.

Why is a large chunk of the Ford Rail Yard not developed in those renderings? Saving it for green space, a park, or something else (besides a trail and maybe transitway)?
Ryan companies does not own that, the rail company does.

That arched window makes it look cyclops-y
My partner said it was a Minneapolis Frankenstein Wells Fargo, Rand Tower, Carlyle Plus a little pinnacle at the falls to boot. That window reminds me so much of the towers across the river.

Re: Ford Plant Redevelopment - Highland Park

I like maintaining single family along the river parkways and the way density increases and steps up away from the river. They could have only increased density by 200 units so I feel like they did a pretty good job with the housing. Why would the affordable (which they're promising 20 percent of un...

It's far more refined than the Carlyle. I like that it's also going for less of a square look than Carlyle it's faces aren't all identical which is nice. The huge arched window on top is strangely out of place or proportion, though, kinda weird.

The lot is basically the same size as that of lpm... just saying.

I can't imagine any land owner doesn't see the value of redeveloping this plot. It's such an amazing location.

I'm pretty sure it's the Bank of America tower from times square.

Also, massive waterfalls?

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 18-20 stories

Sweet!

I was also not really feeling the 2 story portion at Washington but it's growing on me now. The view in the packet looking southwest kind of sells it for me. Looks nice coming into downtown especially if the gateway tower will be right on the corner.

I wonder if they decided they just wanted a more premium location and this was a way to trigger a clause to kill the existing lease? Cynical perhaps, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some truth to this.
Based on the statements in the article I'd hardly suggest this is a hoax.

Re: Crime

Interesting how much you know about their profitability. I think it's great, and something more business should do before claiming that neighborhoods or development or lack of parking or crime or anything else caused them to close. It's great to see a business being proactive. The article could be r...

I'm not sure it's the case at this intersection but there are some great trees that are also right in the way...

Could there ever be a mid block crossing or something, though not half way.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

It appears from project documents that the 35th, 36th, and 42nd Street bridges across 35W aren't going to be reconstructed as part of the current massive project. Does anybody have any sense as to why? Sure seems like you'd take care of these while everything else is messed up. Those bridges weren'...
