Re: 1400 Park Avenue

It's more likely that there was a case of COVID-19 on the crew than that they ran out of funding. If they let the place sit for a few days and do some cleaning it should be fine I would think?? One of the roofing employees. Cleaned house today, back to it on Monday. They will be screening all worke...

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

This is under construction. They have been driving sheet piles all week. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk And hauling out soil like it’s on fire.

The Twin Cities metro has been having among the lowest growth rates of Covid-19 in the country.

Still curious what factors have helped keep this low here.

Ginger Hop is closing permanently this weekend. Hopefully not a sign of things to come for other restaurants due to the pandemic.
Shit. Love their green curry. Just had it delivered Thursday to support them.

Wells Fargo has moved in to their new digs. Yesterday evening the old Wells Fargo was blocked off and there was an excavator in the parking lot.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

I was wondering what those blocks were, and why the retaining wall on that side was so far from the building edge.

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Tear out all the infrastructure in the water and let it go natural. This is just dumb. A real waterfall transitioning to rapids in the middle of the metro is 1000x more interesting than a walkway around a shitty concrete apron. You are suggesting removing the functioning hydroelectric station that ...

I'm curious, do you visit the park on the tip of Nicollet island, or the one by the power station, weekly? Assuming no, what about this would do you think would draw you regularly? *The power station park* only once or twice a year because it is a dead end and on the far bank from where I start (th...
