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: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments

Great to hear! I hope they get going about the same time; it'd be nice to see all that crane activity in a relatively small area!

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...

So awesome to see a developer so committed to a project! I give them a lot of credit for sticking this one out!

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.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

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 ...

Re: 800 Washington Ave S (Guthrie Ramp liner parcel)

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.

Then onto the courts: Minneapolis v. PEVOWH (Preserve Every View of the Witch's Hat) A bunch of houses in Prospect Park have signs stating, "We already have a tower". Super creative! Now they'll have two, they should be overjoyed! This is a very nice project that cleans up some properties and adds ...

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...

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

Interesting, that makes 3 new BBQ joints in NE in a very short period. The owners of Eli's are turning the old Legends Bar into a BBQ restaurant as well.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

Not necessarily, but over the long term they have a history of letting things go without repair and regular upkeep. I'm just glad that they outsourced restaurants at their food buildings because they had a bad track record with that as well.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

One problem they have is that they keep gaining properties to manage through gifts, endowments and other means, yet the people leaving this land don't leave any operating budget so they are constantly running at a deficit and it continues to snowball. They're in charge of a property across the stree...
