Re: Stanton Condo Building - 516 S. 8th St.

1. Where have those folks been parking for the past X years? I lived at the Sexton for a year and parked in the Armory. It was a lot cheaper to be there than at Centre Village.

Re: Minneapolis Armory

Man I hope this happens. I used to park there and it is a disgrace to see such a beautiful building with so much history in such bad shape.

I think the City Center tower is kind of attractive... (Don't worry, I do hate the way it interacts with Nicollet Mall.)

Re: Downtown Retail News

I don't think anyone mentioned this when it happened. Associated Bank moved from IDS to Baker at the end of December and IDS hasn't filled the spot yet.
