I have been told that the owner of the Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee is looking at converting this to a high-end boutique hotel..... I think something will happen here very soon.

Re: Downtown Retail News

Drove by the American Trio Lofts and it looks like the entire main floor has been leased to a "health club" all the windows have been covered with paper.
I will bike by and see if I can get more info.

Re: Wah

Washington Avenue is a great place to walk, it's mostly the buildings and empty lots that ruin the experience. REALLY??!! A great place to walk? My office is on Washington Ave at 10th and I beg to differ that it is anything but a "great place to walk". Just crossing the street, even with the walk l...

Re: Western Container Building Condos - (500 3rd Street Nort

Wow, this would be a great addition to NorthLoop. We need a condo project, I love all the construction but I would like to see some ownership options. I lived at The Bookman before moving "downtown" and always thought this build would be a perfect boutique hotel/inn.

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

Correct. Taller tower cranes build themselves as they go up-- because boom cranes can't reach them, and because they need the support of the building they're building to help hold them up. I have never understood how a crane builds itself so I googled it today, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vx5Qt...

Something we haven't discussed yet: I'm disappointed about the loss of property tax revenue for the City. We have a very nice parcel of desirable land that will now be owned by a tax-exempt organization. Just because the property is owned by a tax exempt org does not mean they pay no property tax, ...

Re: Downtown Retail News

In walking down Nicollet Mall today, I noticed that the retail space in 1200 on the Mall (kitty corner from Peavey Plaza) is all torn up and under construction-looking.

Re: Nic on Fifth - (455 Nicollet Mall)

Pretty sure nearly the whole building is empty. Renaissance Square. Great vintage building with the feel of an 80s rehab. Yes, Xcel used it (and a few floors of the US Bancorp Center) until they remodeled 414 and leased Marquette Plaza. There also used to be a great diner/lunch counter on the groun...

Re: Bon Quartier Apartments

It is absolutely amazing how ridiculous people are when they play the NIMBY card. I have been involved with Clare for years and find the behavior of Calumet to be totally disgraceful.
