Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

Finally someone has made a map of the remaining Sears and Kmart locations nationwide through their latest announced closures. Sears/Kmart has mostly gone extinct in the midwest, and if Madison's Sears and/or Minot/Michgan's remaining Kmart go, how long could the distribution math make sense for Nic...

Re: Southside - General Topics

My guess is that the City Attorney has been heavily involved in this decision. The articles I've read have alluded to the city likely losing this battle in court. I'm not sure they want to spend the money fighting this - and I can't blame them. That could be the case, but it is odd that the staff r...

38th and Bryant redevelopment. Lawsuit! https://wedgelive.com/2018/08/neighbors-sue-to-stop-apartments-at.html 3329 Nicollet. The neighborhood was pitched 2 proposals, and naturally people objected to the one with more density. So we got mostly "townhomes" instead. https://www.southwestjournal.com/n...

Burger King should absolutely be denied. It has been closed for 18 months. As the rules state, this should not be allowed to open as a Burger King again.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Anyone know what's going on with the Burger King at Nicollet and 34th? It's been closed for a week now. There's a sign on the door that says it will re-open, but I'm started to think something more might be going on. I haven't seen anyone onsite doing repairs/remodeling (I live nearby). Maybe they ...

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...
