This one is fenced off and a construction trailer is on-site. I'm guessing we'll see demo here soon.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

Of all the places to put "luxury", this is not the place... I could see market rate, but who wants to pay premium rates to hear freeway traffic and look at exit and entry ramps all day. I guess being able to walk to Home Depot can garner top dollar?!

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

It's interesting that Ryan would potentially have two fairly substantial residential buildings being built at the same time. I understand that they are a large company, but depending on the timeline it could put a strain on their resources. Makes me wonder if this one might not be further out than w...

Re: Richfield - General Topics - 66th Street

I know during the Holidays Lunds used to hire police officers to direct traffic here because it would get so bad. I wonder if any underground parking would not be accessed from the west side of the building and the alley be used by residents to 64th? With that you have a light to enter onto Penn.

Re: Pentagon Park (Hwy 100 & Industrial Blvd) - Edina

Work has started on the site of the former "tower" of Pentagon Park. The trees have been cleared and the left over concrete slabs are being taken up. Looks like the 2 hotels and parking structure are under way.

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

The structural engineer I'm married to said she thought it was a long-shot, but possible. It really comes down to how much it would cost to repair versus tear down and rebuild. If the pictures I saw were any indication, I'm guessing each unit will need repairs of some sort, many of them significant.

Re: Crime

Unless you're a historian you're probably not going to know about King Leopold II. Granted, after finding out the history I would probably reconsider flying it, but it has zero to do with the crime there. The frustrating part about this story is that there are a lot of businesses that have invested ...

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

I think this is a case where the renderings don't do justice to what the actual building would look like. In some of the images it looks like a flat surface versus the brick that is actually proposed. That being said, I'm not a real fan of the balcony railings; I'm glad they're doing something diffe...

Re: Grocery Stores

Considering Hy-Vee has yet to start construction on the store in Columbia Heights after it was announced over 2 years ago, I'd find it hard to believe they'd want to scoop up the Cubs. I think their current expansion grew faster than anticipated and they're finding it hard to keep up. I just don't t...

Re: Downtown Hotel News

Other than training camp, when would this be appealing? I suppose they could have rooms that are geared toward traveling media and they could house players that come in for visits, but I'd assume most people using it would have business at the facility.

I'm neither a fear monger, nor am I hysterical, but I do have reservations about allowing buildings of this size anywhere in the city. To be clear, I'm not in favor of tearing down and building mcmansions either. I live in a neighborhood with several rental homes, apartments, many single family home...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

With most of the properties along Washington being gobbled up for development, how soon do we start the countdown for the lot next to Sawatdee? What size development would you like to see on that plot? Personally, I'd like to see something in the 30-35 story range. You'd have some pretty nice views ...

The city got 4 bids for this parcel. Sherman, AECOM, 45 North Group, and Oppidan. I wasn't able to pull up the whole article from F & C, but hopefully the city will present the bids soon.

Re: Stadium Village

It's interesting how Downtown Minneapolis is strongly linked to many of these though either geography (NE) LRT (Midway and Stadium Village and South Loop) or interstate with 394 (West End). Is Pentagon park going to be part of SWLRT? Personally, I like Downtown St Paul to get some of this construct...
