Re: Former Macy's Site

My hunch is that this is almost certainly a relocation of the Walgreen's from across the street, which would open up the current WG building (owned by the Geller family) for redevelopment... but to what?

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

Totally agree we need a Skyway wayfinding system. Right now people not familiar are mainly left to ask for directions if they get lost. Maybe the DT Council should just make an app for that (or maybe they already do?). Does Apple's Siri know how to get from Point A to Point B in the skyway?

Re: 4Marq - (313' - 30 Stories)

Somebody today said it looks like Mortenson is topping out at 22 stories. What's up with that? Anybody have a visual or know what's going on? Is it an illusion because residential floors are shorter? Or maybe they're just pausing construction? Ideas?

Somethings about to crop up with the Island Station. The owner was scheduled to be heard at a Site Plan Review Committee meeting Sept. 30th to discuss redevelopment plans. If you were there, or live nearby, or know someone in the neighborhood, see what you can find out.
