Re: Cornerstone Prospect Park Development - 2901 4th Street SE

Let me preface this with "I'm new here", to the neighborhood and somewhat to urbanmsp/streets forum (long-time lurker, more recent poster, etc.) This project has evolved somewhat beyond previous commentary here, and they're now calling it Prospect North Gardens . Looks like they're suggesting a 6 st...

Re: RISE at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

Cornerstone still owns the property to the north, that thread is here: https://forum.streets.mn/viewtopic.php?f ... 9&start=40.

I'll write a brief update in that thread, as it looks like the project concept is coming along from what was talked about before.

Re: The Cedar Cultural Center

I'd support the Cedar getting any money, in fact anyone reading this right now should go to a concert there if they haven't yet. They're a non-profit and the staff are mostly volunteers, who work in exchange for tickets. The Cedar hosts such a wide variety of performers and events from just about ev...

Re: RISE at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

I live in the area and use the train stop daily, will gladly report and photograph any changes I see. I was hoping someone here would know when the construction starts, but I haven't found anything in public documents.

This sounds awful :(
If I understand, that Walgreens would move to this new location. Unclear yet what happens to the old property.

Re: Uptown Hotel Discussion

The petition competition made Kare 11 too, but fairly biased toward opposition, apart from one interviewee.

Overflow is closing this month on the 21st, and are having some sort of event (http://www.overflowespressocafe.com/). They had a survey out earlier soliciting opinions on what they might do next. Chance they may reopen in the area, or maybe expand what they do, or wait it out. I live very close and ...

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

I'd rather believe it's the shaky neighborhood process that makes it hard to secure financing. At no point in the whole process did it ever feel like a certainty, because strong, random, and weird opposition made it difficult for the developer to get quality feedback, and when they'd come back with ...

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Currently the corner (the part that would directly abut her property) is just a parking lot, and her building was built over 100 years ago, before zoning was even a thing. I have come to understand that LHENA/Deanna Hagg/MRRDC views newer surface lots as more likely to cause crime, whereas old esta...

Yep! Their sketch artist was busily finishing the sketches during the presentation from Lander.

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

I recall hearing something about this at the last LHENA meeting. Board member Tim Dray announced it, and stated specifically that any resident or business owner who shows up next week will be able to vote. Drag all your Wedge friends, 'cause it'll be a LHENA hootenanny.

Re: Northeast - General Topics

One of the distressing things I've found living in NE (near to University and 22nd-- wondering if I know FISHMANPET's friend now) is how isolated it feels up there. My uptown hipster friends will not visit, and freedom is entirely dependent on good busses and good biking to make up for the lack of g...

Does anyone know what the timeline is for this project, or what needs to be done before they can get to building? I just biked by today partly expecting to see construction happening, but it looks like nothing's going on. Has the project actually gone through the final rounds, or what? All I can fin...
