Re: IDS Center

That would have been awesome to see go up. It was just such a tower with nothing to even compare it with. That last picture is so ominous looking. I think that is pretty cool as well.

(Sorry about the comments on older threads today, I need to catch up with some stuff I missed a few weeks ago.)

Re: Loring Vue Apartments

Whoa! I have never seen that rending before either! I think the height is going to be just right and the texture created on the side of the building will help keep it from becoming a monotonous graffiti zone. Does anyone know if they are building the 3rd floor yet? Also, I agree, I am looking forwar...

Re: Vikings Stadium

I would contest that 222 is not midwesterny. I am not here to talk about that right now. This stadium is not just a piece of infill. I needs to be and will be monumental like The Guthrie and The Walker. It will probably use some locally quarried stone like Target field and have strong geometries. Ex...

Re: 222

Oh yep, every body is right, that would have been nice. Oh well, I love the current design too. Especially since something was lacking in the taller design but the current design is and will be successful.

Re: 2900 Lyndale

The view inside the Greenway is awesome! I would love if they kept building up! Also, I prefer to bike in shadows, its much more manageable to go long distances. Final note, more eyes in the Greenway means less crime in the Greenway.

Re: Downtown Crime

I am not sure about all that actually being possible but I like the idea in general. A radio or T.V. under glass is a good idea. I am not sure people would really appreciate needing to walk over a bus stop though.

Re: 222

I feel good about the design. Nice material choice, especially if they go with dark metal like shown. The side facing away from Washington is the most plain, but it seems a lot like the other development near the river. The Washington side and even the Hennepin side are really good, broken up masses...

Re: 222

Does anyone have renders of the project that we can post? I really like the design, with the square corner and the tower like structures. A reminder would be nice. Thank you

Re: Nicollet Residences

I don't think I agree with that. I am pretty sure there is more density in Loring, the only thing that breaks it up is that school.

Re: Lake & Nicollet

I am interested in that the proposed area for redevelopment includes the wells fargo another block south. If Kmart and WF teams up they could probably work something good out for that space and then work to better devote the area facing the greenway to housing, as values are increasing on the green ...

Re: Nicollet Residences

27 stories is just fine. We just need to create demand to push up instead of out. People will want those upper floor apartments and developers will follow suit. Two towers started this year, a couple more in the next year, and we will be booming. I think we will easily pass our goals of 35,000 new d...

Re: Radisson Blu

I should mention. The MOA is hideous, so it's pretty cool that this is going up and blocking some of the view of the mall. Everyone, knows that the Mall is there, so this creates sort of a synergy. I am hopeful that something like this will happen on the other sides of the mall as well.

I was hoping for a rending but it doesn't look like they have it. They do have floor plans which include a lot of variation. Very cool imo.

Re: The Walkway

I agree with Wedge guy. It could have been worse and the parts that have not been completed yet can add a lot. The pedesterian walkway created from Flux, Mozaic, Lagoon theater, down to City Walk will be great, hopefully it doesn't just come to a dead end at that Calhoun square parking ramp and vaca...
