Re: Downtown Retail News

Von Maur is a great store. I'd love to see that take the Neimans space.

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Keep in mind parking facilities connected to the Vikings stadium must be built and are infact required by law. If Wells Fargo, their developer and the city can make maximum use of parking that will be built, I think it's a huge win. Apparently they're trying to get the Vikings to help pay for the r...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

I heard this one is going to be 2 17-20 story buildings and a 10 story parking ramp.

Re: Nic on Fifth - (455 Nicollet Mall)

They should call it the Powers Tower. I'd be scared to get on the elevator though. ;)

Re: Suburban Malls and Associated Retail News

The Wal-Mart has been open for a while. Not sure if it has spurred any other retail/restaurant development. http://goo.gl/maps/mswy1 My greatest concern about the redevelopment plan is that Wal-Mart will eventually put the Sears out of business. Sears owns their land, and opted to stay in place whi...

The Graves is a nice hotel that seems to be doing well amongst the 1st Ave tomfoolery.

Re: Target Center Renovation

Nice to see the cost coming down, but hopefully that isn't sacrificing quality. Rybak makes it sound like the initial cost was a number they just threw out there. I went to the exhibition game last Saturday. They've redone the concession stands with some fake brick facing. It looks lame. They did fi...

Re: Vikings Stadium

Pizza La Vista closed like a month after they opened for "renovation". I'm not sure I'd build a 'business is down' story around them.

Also, actual attendance at games is down. I guess channel 5 forgot to check on that.

Don't see the point. Trains (generally) run on time- IIRC, exceptions are listed on station marquees
It would be helpful during events when they have all trains running or weather delays. And of course downtown when the green line gets going.
