Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

Exciting to read that! What do you think? Are they actually going to use "Minneapolis" in place of the usual "Minnesota" in front of the team's nickname? I'd love to see Minneapolis in front or even Twin Cities or Minneapolis - St. Paul being soccer is much more popular in the Twin Cities area than...

Re: Opus Ritz Block Development

This thread is useless and speculative because we have 3 data points about any development here and they all were played on the first page. Your opinion isn't useless per se but it does seem myopic to me. Many commentators have noticed the lack of parks and greenery in downtown Minneapolis. This is...

Re: Opus Ritz Block Development

Last time I checked the best proposal was a park, which would be a complete waste. I for one am happy to take this useless and speculative thread off topic. Do you really think that Downtown Minneapolis has enough parks? Where do you go to eat your lunch outside? How is stating that the development...

Re: Opus Ritz Block Development

There are a lot of high profile developers looking to build downtown - I think that the last time we had this was back in the 1980s. Really? We will see just how interested all the high profile developers are when the city issues a request for proposals (RFP)for the Nicollet site, which is one of t...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Unsolicited opinion #4,519: What they could do is scrap the block with the piddly six story apartment building and the two-thirds block ‘o park, and do something like a building wrapping around a public square on the corner of Portland and 4th Street that faces the remaining, full-block park and th...

Wow, that sounds dramatic. The article you linked to says a majority of the 500 jobs will stay here. There haven't been any promises made and the article clearly states, "The company said it “will retain a strong regional presence in Minneapolis” but didn’t specify whether there will be job cuts in...

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Well, it's official the Twin Cities has lost another Fortune 500 company. This area's image is really taking a beating by losing all these headquarters (including high paying jobs and talent). It seems as though the TC area is losing 1 or 2 major companies annually. Hopefully, state, business, and c...

Can't find anything recent about it on the Seattle Times website, but I know the search function on the Strib website is terrible and so the Times' might be also.

The level of hand-wringing and sky-is-falling-shouting on this forum sometimes astounds me. :roll: Just like you, everyone is entitled the their opinion.

Yep, and a nice glass building makes a better gateway than a stinky one story industrial printing building. What's an example of a building you were hoping for? The walker? Oh wait, probably everyone is disappointed because they thought this was going to be the new 100 story skyscraper. Be The Matc...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Being plans no longer call for the closure of Park and Portland, why not just scrap the park plans all together? Having two, small parks (one will be less than an acre and the other about 2.5 acres) and a plaza separated by two busy streets doesn't make any sense and could end up being dangerous. Th...

Re: Shapco Printing Site - (524 Fifth Street North)

What were people expecting here? Bemoaning the lack of retail at ground level is one thing (especially since this is our grand central station, haha), but the design seems fine to me. Tall lobby, lots of glass, some deck space and curving facade further up N Garbage Burner Street. Sometimes less is...
