Re: Green Line (Central)

Is is completed yet?

Re: New Siebert Field

Seriously no clubhouse? That really is barebones; I guess it is back to fundraising for lights and a locker room.

Re: Downtown Office Market

^^^^ Interesting that the 5th St Towers have a large amount of vacancy. Espcially since it is very close to the LRT stop.

Re: Vikings Stadium

I don't think DTE will look anything like SD for quite a while if there are indeed 3 blocks of 'open space' as the proposed site plan shows. I can't think of an NFL stadium that doesn't isolate itself from the city; even Indy, Detroit and Seattle don't have anything near Petco Park. I hope we can ma...

Re: Vikings Stadium

I still don't get the field level suites.
Why would you want to see the players standing on the sideline or sitting on the bench and watch the game on the TV in the suite? maybe you cna get a smelly towel or empty Gatorade cup from one of the water boys as a souvenir.

Re: The Penfield

My initial thought is "wouldn't it have been easier to re-create the columns?". But I guess they are preserving 'something'.

Re: Vikings Stadium

Did anybody see Notre Dame vs Navy in Dublin Saturday? The game was played in Aviva stadium. My wife and kids all stated a separate times " Woah, where are they playing that game?". This is the type of stadium Mpls needs.

Re: Neiman Marcus Closing DT Location

Nieman Marcus is closing downtown, but developers are planning an upscale shopping mall in Eagan.

This should be a red flag for the city of Mpls, there is a perception that 'upscale' people don't come downtown.

Re: 350 North Fifth Street

I guess I'll go out and say it: I think these look awkward and out of place here. With that thinking we wouldn't have the IDS tower. It is good to have discussions about a project (that is exactly what this forum is for), but I am really surprised about the negative feedback. Adding density and rem...

Re: Bennett Lumber Site

Which is exactly why the city needs to move faster on getting projects like this done: http://www.ouruptown.com/2012/04/a-cycl ... ke-street/
I totally agree Phil, this would be fantastic to have throughout the city.
