Re: Southside - General Topics

At the upcoming Lyndale housing, planning, and development committee, there will be a review of a proposal for a 6 unit apartment building at 3525 Lyndale. I'll try to attend to get some more details. I hope we see a lot more single lot development ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

I was jogging up Theo Wirth on Sunday. As I went north past Bassett Creek the path and Theo Wirth PArkway were clear on my way back there was water on both...bit later in the day the parkway was completely flooded. The walkway between Calhoun and Isles has been flooded for awhile and one of the pat...

Re: Renaissance Square / The Andrus

Same. The application language and drawings don’t do a good job explaining what they are actually proposing. Like if they want a minor variance to reduce the retail to 40% of the the first floor area (instead of the required 60%), that’s probably fine. But if they want no retail or one tiny ass spa...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I don't do CRE anymore, but while there is a lot of vacant space in downtown, what is available is not what most tenants want. If you need 10-30k square feet of nice space with the ability to expand, your options are pretty limited or nonexistent. There is definitely demand for new office space, but...

Re: The Amp House (3255 Garfield)

The Lyndale neighborhood group votes to give their "support" or "blessing" to a developer's request for variances/CUPs. It isn't binding. Earlier, the housing committee expressed their unanimous support for this project.

I submitted a FOIA request to the city to read the lease. Is there someone interested in reading them that's fluent in the legalese? I attempted to decipher them but got a bit buried in the bureaucracy.
Glad someone finally did that! I would love to read the lease.

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

The lease is a bigger disaster than I thought ... it seems there isn't language that bankruptcy/financial insolvency is considered default and/or a basis to break the lease. I'm not sure you can just pick up the lease in liquidation. I think Sears/Kmart would need to sublet or assign the lease. A la...

Re: Nicollet Ave, Lake St to Crosstown (Lyndale, Kingfield, Tangletown & Windom)

Finally, construction has started at 3329 Nicollet Ave. This is for the the live/work townhouses and apartments. Will be curious to see how the townhouses lease up. I think the developer said at a neighborhood meeting that they would rent for under $3,000 a month. Foundation is done. They started i...

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

Haven't people been asking that question the past 3-4 years? Unless the economy goes into a deep recession, I doubt there will be a sustained downturn in the level of development that's been happening. There are plenty of national developers that have the cash to keep things moving. High constructio...

Red and orange??? The developer is definitely picking these cladding materials. I hope to god an architect didn't.
Right!? I actually like each color, but they don't look good together.

Re: Nicollet Mall

I, too, am disappointed in the monochromatic look of the new Mall. Somehow, not the lanterns nor the chairs nor the light walk nor even the trees are sufficient to overcome the overwhelming grayness. However, I'd like to imagine this is fixable. Rather than throw up our hands and give into regret, ...

That's a lot of parking but a much lower ratio than what Stanton wanted in Eclipse (if memory serves me right). All underground is great as well. Excited to see how it looks.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

So basically the plan is going to be scaled back a ton and as a result we are going to see almost all new development where it's already been occurring: uptown, downtown, north loop, NE, and along the blue and green lines.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I can see why people would be upset: thinking that their property will depreciate if/when the city allows a bunch of renters and absentee landlords put up four-plexus on their block. Linden Hills and Kenwood aren't going get poor people. They're going to get slightly less affluent people who are ha...
