Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

I walked by last weekend and the Sons of Norway building looked liked there was demo going on inside and there was a bunch of equipment out in the parking lot as well.

Re: Art and Architecture Building Redevelopment - 3338 University Ave SE - 17 Stories / 195'

Terrific looking building. Talking to some PP residents this weekend, the reception for this is mixed, but there is a real discussion happening and the 'parking at all costs' folks seem more isolated if not still vocal. Adding the grocery store in the link and the convenience of it seems to be helpi...

Re: MSP Airport

I just snagged a round trip from SFO to MSP with Delta for $175. It was considerably cheaper than any other airline at SFO or LAX I could find, a nice surprise.

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

Better late than never I guess, but I do trust Alatus to follow through and finish this project. So here's to seeing this finally inch closer to reality.

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

i'm seeing a lot of complaining about the length of the project and I don't understand why. You all know large capital projects like this have budgets and timelines right? If and only if this is not done by November can you all complain. We all knew this was going to take 2 1/2 years before it start...

BART is horrible in a lot of ways, but the noise has to be the worst. Had to ride it everyday, if you didn't have headphones on it felt like you were going to get ear damage going under the Bay.

Re: Stadium Village 26-Story Tower (Harbor Bay Real Estate)

I am curious when Big 10 and Abdul's Afandy will leave. I ate at Big 10 2 days ago and when I asked my waiter about the apartment building he claimed they had no plans to move or close and had not even gotten an offer from the developer to buy out the rest of their lease which goes for another 3 ye...

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Just showing that companies do in fact cite cost of business as a reason for leaving, wasn't supposed to be a critical look at Jamba Juice as a company.

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Related to this Jamba Juice did cite the cost of business as a reason they are relocating to Texas, so companies do say things like that when it is an issue.

Re: San Francisco

There's a lot going up in SoMa, but that is probably the ONLY neighborhood where such things can happen with the Transbay rezoning that was done, but the problem with the new Transbay district is that it is almost all office, something like 3 million sq. ft. with a few thousand ultra luxury units, w...

I worked for Car2Go last year. If there is a pool of cars anywhere, we would send people out to move them around. So hopefully they still do that but idk
