Re: Nicollet Ave / Eat Street - Whittier, Stevens, Loring Park

Looks like it's a 5 story apartment building called 1st Ave. Flats.

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

It sounds like the US Bank site may be delayed a bit. It appears some of the "parts" have shuffled a little bit and they may need to go back to the city again. Part of the delay revolves around the affordable housing portion. Hopefully it's just a little blip?

Re: MPS Comprehensive District Design

I have an elementary school one block from my house; Pillsbury. My neighborhood is predominantly white/caucasian. Right now a large number of the kids come from north Minneapolis to go to that school. With the lines redrawn, there will be very few children of color in that school or at Waite Park, t...

Re: MPS Comprehensive District Design

This isn't integration though. We already struggle with diversity in the schools; with this plan we'll have even less. Schools that under-perform get less funding and have higher teacher turnover. With this you're more likely to force kids in areas that are already struggling economically, to go to ...

Re: Broadway Station Redevelopment - 2025 West River Rd

You have residences north of Broadway, you will have the development at Broadway Station, and you have the new Opus Condo's at Plymouth; you would think a small restaurant could make it along the parkway between Broadway and Plymouth. Prye's is usually busy in the evening, I could see some crossover...

Re: Fridley - Columbia Heights - Spring Lake Park

To be honest, I'd rather see them tear down and rebuild anyway. With the age of the building I have to believe it would cost just as much to make the building efficient as it would to start from scratch. I could see putting up some multifamily housing on-site along with a new grocery store.

Re: Fridley - Columbia Heights - Spring Lake Park

There is a significant grade difference between Central and that parking lot, but that's just one of many reasons why they would never front Central with the store. No grocery store will want a front and back entrance to their space; it creates a security nightmare. This means that you would just ha...

Interesting. I can’t remember, did the U have any involvement in that United proposal from a few years back? Really liked that one.
In the image I like how they put a red stamp over what looked like place holder images of buildings on the site you're talking about.

Re: Role of Visitors and Spaces for them in Cities

I think that the benefit of having larger events and even conventions to a certain degree help introduce the city to people that may not have a knowledge of the area or even a desire to have come here otherwise. Not everyone has a desire to fly 4 hours to see a blue rooster or the Stone Arch Bridge....

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The preliminary site plans basically showed a parking structure going in between the buildings with the current buildings just being made into housing with some retail added. I was really disappointed because this would be a prime spot for some mixed use with some office space. Even if it was just a...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

If I remember correctly, the only place they could do a lid over 35 in this vicinity is south of Washington. There's not enough elevation to the north of Washington unless you get up past University.

Re: Melzer Block (E Hennepin between Univ and 4th) for Sale

I think most of the buildings have tenants that are fairly well established. I would think this is nothing more than the seller having a great opportunity to sell while the asset is maximized.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

It's amazing how much traffic has increased at this intersection just since the Broadway reconfiguration. Central at evening rush hour is a disaster near Lowry, I can only imagine this will get worse now.

That equipment has been there for almost a month. At one point someone had thrown out 10-28 as a groundbreaking, clearly that hasn't happened. I would have to believe that at least part of the parking lot will need to be closed for the construction. Wondering if there is anything on-site that may te...

Re: Cambria / Fairfield Hotels - 41 10th Street N (former Ramada block)

It would be nice to see a development along the lines of Expo go on this block. doesn't need to be huge, but definitely something more substantial than the last hotel proposal.
