Re: IDS Center

Meh. I love that they are adding something to the skyline but it seems a bit half-assed, no? Agreed. It's like the IDS is looking down the street at a younger, flashy Target HQ and having a mid-life crisis. Basically, the IDS colored lights are the equivalent of a guy with a bad comb-over in a conv...

Re: Peavey Plaza reconstruction project

The lunch-in was odd, if there even was one. I couldn't really tell, except for maybe a couple furtive glances by others who maybe didn't know what to do next either. There weren't any event identifiers to be seen or any way to know who in the plaza was there for the event. I'm not sure what the poi...

Re: 330 South 12th

Perhaps worldwide there are many areas where this is true, but in the US, I'd suggest that there are really only three such places. Manhattan, Chicago, and San Francisco. I think this is because of geography. All three of those cities have water restraints on them. We do not, and, have two central ...

Re: 222 & Whole Foods - (222 Hennepin Avenue)

I'm seeing some stick going up on the 2nd Street side now. It's on the 2nd level that rings the old parking structure. If you are referring to what I think you are, those are just temporary railings for the workers. There's that, but these are the prefab sections that are starting to frame some wal...

Re: ElseWarehouse - 730 Washington Ave N

This is one of the properties that is built over the Basset Creek tunnel. I guess the creek is the UnderWarehouse element of the ElseWarehouse :) I may be mistaken, but I think I've seen the rear windows blown out in the refurb of this building, which you can see from 2nd Street in the Soltva-ish a...

Re: Neiman Marcus Closing DT Location

Has downtown retail ever done anything to promote itself as a whole? Not since the formation of Holidazzle, I think. Other than that, there's the Downtowner coupon flyer :| . It's disheartening to see Uptown, Southdale and MOA get stores I'd love to see downtown. The most recent knife twisting in t...

Re: Soltva apartments

Yeah, I've zipped my lips until this thing got further along, but I'm underwhelmed. Actually, beyond under; I'm in Sub Basement 3 of whelmed. The facades do look flat and cheap. I'm 'eh' about the honey colored brick, the dark brown brick portion is much better. The silver panels already look a bit ...

Re: Nicollet Mall

I think the simple, core question is "why should anybody be there". That is why who is there, is there right now.
