Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Too bad to see another store close, but I'm not surprised as Gap has been struggling for awhile now. I was just in Denver and noticed Uniqlo has opened a store on 16th Street Mall (Pavilions). It would be nice to see them in the Gap space or elsewhere downtown. BTW, 16th Street Mall has come a long ...

21 and 30 stories. Are there any churches, mosques or synagogues that we have to worry about?

Re: Nye's Redevelopment - 100 block of E Hennepin Avenue

Did parishioners of St. Olaf freak out when the Piper Jaffray tower (now Campbell Mithun) was proposed? That tower might be in closer proximity to St Olaf than the new Nye's development is to Lourdes.

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

We don't even know a height yet. But height shouldn't constitute whether it's *WORD NOT FOUND* or not. I used to think that sometimes too. This could be the start of a new gateway path to the river. Also isn't it already *WORD NOT FOUND*? We're arguing about it being so, so it must be a bit of an i...

Did you happen to notice those are my words in the photo? Sure, anyone can post photos, but when you are posting them at the expense of others or just to be a d*ck, it's uncalled for - don't ya think?. If I were to act this way, it wouldn't be tolerated.

Well that's not true, you've been posting the same thing in this thread since October (page 3) and every few pages since. Moving on...

I see my previous post was deleted about the city wanting a quality project for this site. So this site doesn't tolerate one being critical of proposals and / or the city?

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I'm a recruiter within the Twin Cities tech sector and I've recruited for both agency as well as in-house. Twin Cities companies are facing a number of issues when it comes to attracting and keeping talent ... Target has had to set up tech shop elsewhere (Cailifornia) because it can’t find the tale...

What should Minneapolis have done differently to keep Target from restructuring and laying off thousands of employees? :roll: Typical It's a valid question.

Where did I state anything about Target? The loss of headquarters, jobs, and talent has been an ongoing issue here for a number of years now.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Perhaps Minneapolis officials and locals should start worrying more about keeping corporations and talent here than if whether or not we should be considered something other than Midwestern. There are companies like Amazon recruiting local talent left and right and locals are worried about what we s...
