Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Looks like they're gonna start up again. There have been a parade of utilities on site (although not clear what they've been doing, there are still overhead powerlines criss-crossing the development), and they spent a day welding the pile driver. Today it looks like they're testing it out.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

No pile driving since they stopped in the middle of the morning over a month ago. For awhile Xcel was on site, but now nothing.

The retail is a must...the nearest retail to this corner is what a couple blocks away? This area is still forlorn.
On Nicollet yes. Whole Paycheck is a block or two away from here as well.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Pile driving has been stopped for almost a week at less than a third of the way done. Today there were bucket trucks on site. I wonder if they found underground utilities where they didn't expect.

There are still no project banners on the barrier fences other than the ones for Big-D construction.

Few people cook anymore. How many people know how to use an oven today? People order out and reheat leftovers in the microwave. Even people in single family homes with 6-figure kitchens rarely use them.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Wow, pretty surprising the Skyscape one is closing, it's consistently busy whenever I go there. This will be a big negative for the neighborhood. Although maybe not surprising considering the sign in the dairy section today:

Has anything happened with the old church adjacent to this project (discussed upthread)?
Does anybody know where this stands?
It still stands, and lies outside the construction fences. As to its future I don't have a clue.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

I'll go for a walk today or tomorrow.

The site has been cleared, including most of the snow. Interesting note: the MN AIDS Project building didn't have a basement.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Think they'd have to angle it to reach 365. It's coming out of the Nicollet facing North half of the building I think. If you click in the building on Google Maps and click 2nd floor you can see where it will go.

There is a construction trailer and barriers up on this project.

Still need to do demo work on the existing ex-MN AIDS Project building

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

Yep it is. The two people I know that own season tickets go back towards downtown. One couple to get the bus back to South Minneapolis, and the other to go to a Warehouse District bar.
