Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Did Doran forget that the city wants something ICONIC? Their proposal looks like a residential tower that one would find in Denver. I really like United Properties' proposal, but it looks like it would fit nicely in Elliot Park or in Downtown East. Duval's proposal is definitely iconic.

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Duval doesn't even have a functioning website.

I'm really disappointed Minneapolis couldn't attract national or international interest in this site.

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Saw something interesting today on MSN home page. They had a page on the 3 largest public companies for each state. I was quit surprised to see the one missing that I sure thought would be in the top 3. I knew Cargill was very big, but they are not public, But I had thought for sure that Target wou...

Re: IDS Center

You guys know iconic doesn't mean the most good-looking, right... ? Really? Do you think we are a bunch of 5 year olds? I'm sorry, but very few people give a sh*t about the IDS, especially those who are under the age of 40, implants, or visitors from outside the state. It's 2014 and time to move on...

Re: IDS Center

Based on the reactions from out of town friends and family - the Wells Fargo tower is the city's most iconic tower and I agree with them. :)

Nice to see the city has some high expectations here! We need more of this attitude in our downtown development.
Should turn out fine as long as local developers are not involved.

I for one don't think it's worthless to talk about what's going on behind the scenes of potentially major projects. Yes, there is a Norman Foster design for the Ritz Block. I could even describe it. Yes, Lord & Taylor signed a letter of intent to anchor the retail promenade. Yes, several internatio...

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

The Guinness International Cup was a poorly advertised event. I'm sure the Fringe Festival, Uptown Arts Fair, Loring Park Art Festival , Powderhorn Art Fair, and the Paul McCartney concert will impact attendance.

grant... you should upload it to the 3d warehouse... that way we can all view it in google earth. :) I created a mock tower for that site recently as well. This is what, I imagine, 44 floors at 15 ft per floor and 600,000 sq ft could look like: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-I-2y0Uhdwpw/U9sCpI9...

Re: Current & Proposed Downtown Minneapolis Projects

When was the last time we had anything hitting the 40 story mark? 1990 with Capella? Yes I realize that it's taller. That's correct- nothing since Capella. Almost 25 years. That's an amazing drought for a city that's metro is well over 3 million. And 40 stories isn't really all that big either. Don...
