Re: Arby’s Island

It's amazing how close the building is to the current placement of the traffic signals. This building will be very much built out right to the sidewalk, which will be great.

Re: The Walkway - (1312 West Lake Street)

...and will they ever keep all the retail fully occupied at any point in time? :(

This could be so much better if MNDOT would sell that trip of land.
I wonder if this MNDOT right of way is left over from when the scooped up land for I-335 back in the '70's? I believe the interstate would've ran under Central and had and interchange with Central at that location.

Re: Arby’s Island

Sign was being removed this morning, so hopefully you got any pics you wanted before it's removal.

To answer the above question, Kokomo, IN, South Bend, IN and Champaign, IL are places where the big hat with flashing lots existed...at least a couple years ago!

Re: Arby’s Island

I love how people in multiple forums are trying to protect the Arby's sign. Those things were a dime a dozen and many still exist around the country, so let's not try and pretend this is the Grain Belt sign. ;)

Re: Rex 26 - 2601 Lyndale Ave S

Quick update that all the houses that are planned to be cleared on this site are gone. Noticed this on my drive home from work this evening as it was remarkably brighter at the intersection while waiting on the traffic signal.

Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

I agree that I think the format can work. I live in what is the only newer condo building on the north side of the midtown greenway between Hennepin & Lyndale (all others are rental) and we have a very diverse mix of homeowners. We have several couples that are retired and have cabins up north and a...

Re: Former Dayton's Building

I was walking through on the second floor this morning and there were several men checking in with a security guard at the main elevators. They had, what appeared to be, large drawings or some sort of schematics under their arms as they entered. Sorry, not much info, just sharing what I saw. :)

Re: Mozaic (all phases)

Basically all the first floor you can see in that picture (part of it us going to be enclosed bike parking) I have a hard time seeing retail doing well facing the Greenway. The two blocks of 29th to the east are essentially an alley for Cub and Planned Parenthood. Not much traffic going through the...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I'm not against the calming of traffic on 28th street as I live in Lowry Hill East just off of 28th near the Midtown Greenway. I drive to work and in the morning traffic is usually backed up close to Bryant Ave at the Lyndal & 28th traffic signal with two lanes and it is usually a couple phases of t...

Re: West Lake Station / Calhoun Village area - multimodal study, development, etc.

Wasn't sure where to put this, so thought this was as good as place as any to do so. I was having the annual tax appointment at HR Block at Calhoun Village and asked the tax advisor I've worked with for years if they were moving their office due to the impending move of Walgreens into that space as ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Macy's Building

TANGENT: I wish someone had photos of the pool for the Dayton family on the 13th floor. I worked in that building for a few years during my first years at Dayton Hudson and never had the opportunity to see the 13th floor.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Weird...the Uptown location has been closed and signs up in the windows saying it was changing as I go to spin next door at CycleBar. Now to see who made the mistake: the newspaper or the owners?
