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

The Acme Foundry at 3161 Hiawatha (NE corner of 32nd and Hiawatha) is for sale! Hopefully to be developed into something, too bad that long strip of land with dirt piles isn't part of this property... https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3161-Hiawatha-Ave-Minneapolis-MN/16120184/?fbclid=IwAR2chiEQrcVOB47...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Heard a rumor of 42 stories... don't quote me on that I remember a proposed 25 story office building ... do you think this is office or residential? This is the old 25-story office building proposal that was cancelled... https://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/morning_roundup/2013/10/hines-north-loo...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

With a reminder about the 80-story flash in the pan. Whatever happened to that developer? Based on Alex Duval's website (who made the 80 story proposal), it appears he has been some part of the design process of a couple large projects that were built, and renovated someone's condo, but hasn't deve...

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

Wow thanks for following up! Hopefully a nudge from the city, higher property values, and a good market for development cause this to happen sooner rather than later.

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

On a related note, it would be interesting to see if any of the "Park and Fly" businesses nearby decide to redevelop their surface lots with airport parking ramps and apartments at any time in the near future

Looks like this would happen with sunsets twice every summer, about a month before/after the solstice on May 20th and July 20th. It would also happen for sunrises twice a year, around November 20th and January 20th. https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/solcalc/ Sunset (red line) on May 20th, 2019: sun...

Re: Proposed Crown Hydro Plant

Plus, the state is making such great progress adding wind and solar renewables. Agreed, this project would only produce 3.4 MW and we can easily make that much clean energy from two typical 2 MW wind turbines. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to what’s being developed in the Midwest (1400 MW of...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target, etc.) - Downtown Longfellow

I noticed that the car detailing store at the SE corner of Lake-Hiawatha looked like it was empty this morning, no cars in the parking lot (there usually are tons) and it looked pretty empty on the inside. Anyone know what's going on there?

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

When I drove by last night there was a backhoe next to the gas station at 3800 24th Ave S (where Yellow Tree proposed a 4-story apt building). Demo soon perhaps?

Re: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments

And there's also this tidbit from the article... The Wilfs acquired the surface parking lot at the corner of Park and Washington Avenues in 2007 — long before construction of the U.S. Bank Stadium began — when they bought a small portfolio of parking lots from Central Parking. They also own two adja...

Re: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments

Wow with this 17-story tower, the 22-story tower a block to the west, the 13-story Ironclad building two blocks east, and the 43-story condo tower a few blocks east... there's quite a change in the skyline in this part of downtown!

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

It’s worth noting that the 18 MW capacity of the dam is only as much energy as 9 typical 2 MW wind turbines running at capacity, or about how much energy 20 of those turbines would generate in a year in MN...a rather small wind farm.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Plus the exit from 35W south to Lake St could help siphon off some people that may go from westbound 94 to Hennepin/Lyndale. Some would go westbound 94 to southbound 35W to Lake. I don't know if it would be that many people, but I could be one of them on some days.
