Not sure if skyline level signage is becoming a trend (I hope not) but does anyone know of any buildings downtown that have it?

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

They are doing some environmental cleaning at the Star Tribune building and a worker told me that demolition should start beginning of August.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

From a distance for some reason the zinc used in covering the ventilation ducts appear to be lighter but when up close they are actually darker. In person those patches also appear to have a different texture from the surrounding zinc. I'm not sure if those patches will become less visible over time...

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

From 3rd street elevation it looks like they are working on the fifth level of the ramp. That has to be wrapping up before winter. Is there 6 or 7 levels that they are building? According to a project pdf, the ramp will be 6.5 levels above ground. However if you look at the webcam there is one leve...

Met Council approved the bridge yesterday. It will cost $7mil due to design modifications and the Vikings are still paying half. Nice to see this moving forward!

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

They have started piling for the front residential sections of the WF project. I'll have to take a look at the posterior sections since they will be going up in a similar time frame.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

I am assuming that they needed to cover the vent portions with something other than the zinc panels used. If you check it out in person you can see that it is a completely different texture from the surrounding panels. Hopefully when the zinc weathers/lightens it would match those portions.

Re: 2700 University Ave

The project page has about 10 renderings which look amazing. Didn't realize how significant the scale of the project is!

Re: Green Line (Central)

I happened to drive by the Central Station in Dt St.Paul, they had put up construction fences around the area where the elevator/sky way connection is to be built, so construction should start soon I guess. Also, one article mentioned the possibility of development taking place adjacent to the stati...

Re: Green Line (Central)

It was definitely worth the wait (9- 11:30pm). When the lrt finally emerged from under the bridge, it was almost magical but I was a little disappointed not to see the new s70 lrt being used.
