Re: Nicollet Ave / Eat Street - Whittier, Stevens, Loring Park

Thanks for the lead on this. Nice little infill. I found the CPC packet: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@cped/documents/webcontent/wcmsp-215194.pdf This looks to be the one Frana Companies posted back in April: they called it Blaise. https://www.facebook.com/FranaCompanies/posts/311...

Looks like the PPL/Family Partnership project on the southeast corner of Lake & Bloomington is underway. Foundations going in north of the Powderhorn Post Office.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Corridor Development & MinHi Line

Correct on the addresses, though plenty of addresses change as construction progresses (note the 240 to 250 to 270 and maybe back to 240 Hennepin project). It's just speculation given that the main entrance will be just about as far as you can get from Hiawatha Avenue and still be on a public street.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

The old Bridgeman’s/Somtaste came down in the last week, and there a good deal of activity on site. Upon looking at the approved plans for 4757 Hiawatha, it looks like the front door will be along the stub of Nawadaha Boulevard, halfway between Hiawatha and Minnehaha. I wonder if the address will ch...

Aren’t both of the 8-story buildings on Lake Street north of Bde Maka Ska (The Lakes and u/c LakeHaus) both reinforced concrete?

Sears Redevelopment

Some other very small agencies in Golden Rule (Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services, Architecture Board). Part of the Judicial branch is in Landmark Towers. Minnesota Housing Finance just relocated into the Treasure Island Center. I’d venture to guess that most state employees, like me, would prefer to s...

Wow, pretty surprising the Skyscape one is closing, it's consistently busy whenever I go there. This will be a big negative for the neighborhood. Although maybe not surprising considering the sign in the dairy section today: https://i.imgur.com/rgWVhAU.jpg?1 Oof, clearly an asset to the neighborhoo...

Re: Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville - General Topics

Tower crane went up in the last couple weeks at the approximate site of the future high-rise hotel at the Viking Lakes project in Eagan. I could make out a Kraus-Anderson trailer. Eagan permits don't seem to indicate a tower being constructed yet (wasn't even sure it was approved). Anyone know anyth...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Has anyone heard if something is happening at 1177 West 7th Street? It's been a vacant lot for several years (Street View showed a house in 2007, but it was gone by the next pass in 2011). I saw a skid loader just about done tearing up the grass yesterday. This is between Tavial Grill and the strip...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

While I haven't seen any plans go through city commissions, nor a specific building permit, the Degree of Honor Building at 325 Cedar Street seems to have started a rumored conversion to residential. As far as I can tell, the remaining office tenants are gone, the skyway level offices have been gutt...
