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 Restaurant News

Weird that they came out last week and said it was only closing for a month or so to revamp the menu and do some minor remodeling.

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...

Amazing. 4 buildings in this area with similar height and they're still going to beat that dead horse?

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.

Re: RBC Gateway (Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 519'

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.

Drove past this yesterday and there was no activity on the site. The equipment that is there is fenced in and hasn't moved since they brought it over.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Right now have a really long construction schedule. We'll have to see if they shorten it to get some use of the rooftop next summer.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I was talking with someone involved with the new Pinstripes on Washington and it sounds like they're trying to get a rooftop dining area as well as a traditional restaurant space and gaming areas.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

I got the impression that New Bohemia was willing to stay, but the building owner was going to raise the price on the lease. Seems to me that most times I drove by there were always people there, so I think they still had a good following. This is a prime corner so I'm guessing with the addition of ...

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

The Expo has topped out the last residential floor, but is still working on the "canopy" for the top, so there is still more concrete work up there.

Re: Electric Scooters

Scary thing is I'm seeing families on these things. Twice last week, in separate instances, I witnessed a mom (or older sibling) with 2 kids on a single scooter. In one case they ignored a red light, while traffic was moving, to cut across 4 lanes and kept moving like nothing had happened; how they ...

Re: CPM North Loop Office Building - 419 Washington Ave N / 420 N 3rd St

I was just in the building last week and everyone just referred to it as the 419 Building. I know Calabrio has 2 floors in the building, but I don't believe there were any naming rights.

Please, please, please come to fruition! They've had this plot for a long time, I'm glad they're finally pulling the trigger! My guess is they're looking to land Fredrikson and Byron for the office portion.

Nothing new here. Rumor is they will break ground in August.
