Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

So at the current rate it will take approx 10 years to hit state population of 6mil. If anyone wants to do more math, here's MN:

Blame the realtor, blame the builder, blame your mother but god forbid you ever blame yourself for your choices. Ugh.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

I think anyone with a lick of common sense should be able to figure out that something might be built next or nearby that could block their view and hurt their resale value. I had 16 vacant lots to the east of me, with unobstructed views of woods and farmland when I moved in to my house 14 years ago...

Clear as day a two second scene of downtown Minneapolis with the Sivana logo on top of the IDS building. I noticed the Minneapolis shot with the IDS but what I screamed out loud was when they sai...

Re: Bloom Capital Project - Rochester

Okay but that riverfront project would have been a real game changer and what a nice riverfront promenade for everyone to enjoy. However this project you mention would tie the towers from both sides of Broadway to a more cohesive downtown. Still can't believe Michael's is gone.

Re: Rochester

The Hyatt House is significantly different from earlier presentations and appears to be about 2 stories shorter as well. Hope it doesn't change further. It will be nice to see the Virgil's site redeveloped. Hoping with both hotel and residential it might be a substantial project.

Re: Rochester

I agree I wish they'd redo the entire outside. Those little windows are hideous. I wish somehow they could incorporate the look of the new development going on behind it along the river.

So after reading the article I don't see if anything is actually replacing it as was proposed some time ago.

If anything instead of building over Cancer Survivors Park, tunnel under it. It would really destroy any visual beauty left from the original Federal Reserve.

Re: Rochester

The original Gonda bulding is blah, the connection to the Mayo is nice. The Hotel portion will be a great addition and will make the building much better.

Re: Arby’s Island

I don't know if all 3 corners are going to be rounded but the one shown could be cool to have a 2 story glass penthouse on top, and if the other 2 corners were rounded as well they could have have them 2, or even if not. Each with their own patio decks.
