Re: Calhoun Square

Make it multi-generational. Arcade for teens, reading and internet place for seniors with tea and coffee. Throw in kiosks that have different businesses in them. Their use is won by lottery that you pay for. Put in a food court with either international food or a bunch of American fast food, since M...

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

I may be misunderstanding you, but spending 30% of your income on housing is a pretty standard metric of affordability. and on top of that if you worked fairly close..or maybe even not so close with public transportation, would you even need a car. I remember owning my house near 31st/Emerson Ave S...

Did pelli make the library kind of look like the dolphin staffing building?
I can definitely see why you think so. They do have a lot of similarities from a distance. Now if only the library had gotten it's planned planetarium.

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

Maybe one of those mini Cub Foods stores. The one in south Minneapolis is so cool. It would cater more to the neighborhood what with the density here and really wouldn't require parking.

Re: Rochester

Crave restaurant is great. I've been to the one in Woodbury twice now, one being this past Sunday before going to the Heart concert. The food, atmosphere, staff, all are exceptional.

All the penthouses on the top 2 living floors are less than 1000 sf. I guess it's the view you'll be paying for. Over all I"m happy with this tower.. It offers a lot. I hope the retail areas work out well.

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

It's amazing how much more traffic there is on Hwy 52 then there was when I was growing up. Back in the early 70's my friends and I would ride our bikes along 52 from Zumbrota to Pine Island to go swimming in their pool. Zumbrota got one around 74 or 75. The other highlight for the trip was that my ...

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...

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.
