Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

Also, someone recorded some footage from the vigil of a speech from Nicole Curtis. I think she makes a few questionable statements (TIL: in Europe, no old buildings are torn down ever, to be replaced with new green ones). Perhaps worth a little more dissection, just to see what new arguments will be...

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

The deadline for public comment is 1PM tomorrow (Tuesday), so, if you want to submit something, do it before then. The preservationists are kind of going crazy over this, so without a similar set of inspired people on the development side, it's hard to know how this will go.

Re: Hennepin County Commissioner - 3rd District

On the Marion Greene end of things, there were some suspicious Twitter goings-on during the lead up to the Minneapolis election.

Re: Lime - (2900 Lyndale Avenue South)

So, I was cautioned against joining this forum at the meetup/happy hour (and I was the only person there without an account-- rectified), but I thought I'd say, one of the nifty things to learn about this place was that the first floor lobby/atrium/wevs will host a cafe bar that is open to the publi...
