Re: 2700 University Avenue Development

I'm sure it will, just interesting since there are although tons of housing units within like two blocks of here. I'd like to see Hodges Bend make it.

Re: 2700 University Avenue Development

Not in this building, but somewhat relevant is that the Dunn Bros. in the adjacent Metro Lofts building — which has been there for at least a decade and is adjacent to the green line station — just closed. So that leaves two empty retail bays in Metro Lofts. Hodges Bend is going to need some good lu...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

What a weird cross section of people who decide to go to this random website and be mad at a meaningless study. In case people are wondering, Minnesota is only happy outside of the two libtard cities, and because we have a small black population, and we also have nothing on New Yorkers in terms of r...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

From an interview today in the Athletic with Bill McGuire: You had mentioned large green spaces and a “Great Lawn” surrounding the new stadium. Is that on track for 2019? The Great Lawn is going to be in this fall. That’ll all be done — you’ll be able to see Shields Avenue going in front of the stad...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 43 stories / 526'

The Park Board building having a driveway off the barren, industrial, dead-end northern stretch of West River Parkway isn't precedent. Whatever existing issues you might have with the Park Board of West River Parkway, this is exactly the type of battle it should fight.

Re: 2700 University Avenue Development

The 2700 boulevards are weird. Wouldn't it be cheaper to plant grass than load it up with mulch every summer? Also, appears they mulched near the building recently, but the boulevards remain dirt.

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

The eastern part of the site is now demo'd, and I'd expect the debris to be fully cleared by the end of today.

Re: Art and Architecture Building Redevelopment - 3338 University Ave SE - 14 Stories / ~155'

Some updates from Cam Gordon Art and Architecture Development. The Planning Commission approved the proposed Art & Architecture Building development by Vermilion at 3326, 3338, and 3350 University Ave SE on June 25. I heard a lot of community perspectives on this project, both for and against. I tha...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Has it been studied how the aging infrastructure would be affected? A lot of the embankments down there are already looking kind of wonky.

It's pretty premature to judge the wrap, considering it's not finished and not lit up yet.

Re: Legacy Condominiums - 121 12th Ave S (187' - 17 Stories)

When pointed out these buildings are pretty black, but in context with the city I've actually noticed that they're dark or similar looking. Everything could always be better, but at the end of the day this doesn't feel like a negative quality, just an observable quality.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I went by from the north (i.e. on the train) for the first time today, and the north side is really striking with the roof line dipping down. It really does look like a spaceship, albeit a spaceship with a McDonalds out front.

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

IMO Walz is much better known that Murphy in general. It'd be one thing if we were talking about one of the big-city mayors, but I doubt most people in the metro had even heard of Erin Murphy before she ran for governor. Same for her running mate.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Does anyone know if St. Paul has plans in the near future to re-do Pelham Avenue from Franklin to the river? The industrial area north of 94 is pretty bad, but it's almost worse in the residential area to the south.

Re: WaHu Student Housing - 1000 Washington Avenue SE

The spots that remain unfilled are between the light rail station and the rest of Stadium Village, which I would argue are better locations than some of the ones already filled. Makes you wonder what they're waiting for.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

I've always heard really high praise for Heyday but location-wise it felt more like a neighborhood restaurant than somewhere exciting to go have an expensive meal. So a few times I considered it while looking for a nice dinner, but instead always ended up somewhere more "happening" like the North Lo...
