Re: Greystar West Lake Apartments - 2626 Lake Street W

If the proposed land bridge from Lake Of The Isles to Lake Calhoun ever becomes a reality, the land owners of this site will kick themselves for not having retail. It would be a great place for a patio bar/restaurant to rival The Eatery next door. There is a need for a quality restaurant with a vie...

You can blame the mis-management on the CEO/Owner (Holtzman).

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

I don't share the hatred that a lot of people seem to have for skyways, but if pedestrians have to go up a level and then down a level right away rather than feeding into the second story of the mall and hotel it sounds like a dumb design to me. Even though I live a few miles away it's been over a ...

Re: Nic on Fifth - (290' - 26 Stories)

Laramar is still working on hiring the property manager. The leasing office will be opening immediately after this is done, as the property manager will also be over-seeing the lease-up (i have an acquaintance that is a finalist).

Re: Nicollet Mall

God. The comments on the Star Tribune story are almost exclusively either: • What, they couldn't find a local firm to do this? • If any state money goes to this project I will be mad! It's almost like it's organized. Sometimes I think it might be. Anyway, the guy who won was on MPR earlier today an...

Re: Vikings Stadium

To clarify, the ceremonial groundbreaking would occur in October, with work starting on areas not directly attached to the current stadium.

Actual demo of the dome would occur immediately after the last home game (hopefully the NFC Championship) in late January.

Re: Vikings Stadium

Yea, October. With demo beginning literally the day after the last home game per Lester Bagwell.

They still haven't stated whether it will be imploded or pieced apart.

Hopefully, there is some sort of set back for the party deck railing. If not, then there may be a few drinks spilled on the restaurant patrons directly below. :lol:

Re: Calhoun Square

I always thought that the owner of The Walkway also owned the vacant lot next to Calhoun? I may be mistaken...but I recently heard he already has plans, but is waiting on The Walkway to be complete in order to secure financing.

Two things on this one:

At least they are designing the layout correctly. Whoever designed the layout of the west half of the Albertville Outlet wasn't very bright.

Timberland better open up a factory store here!

Hopefully they have more than just renderings on cardboard. I expect a 3-D model and perhaps a interactive video or two.

Re: Vikings Stadium

I'm giddy! Sharp angles, lots of glass, and green space in the plaza and around the stadium are my only outside requests.
