Re: City Walk Uptown - (1312 West Lake Street)

On that note, I drove by tonight and they've got between a quarter and a third of the piles in the ground already. It looks like this thing is going to be moving pretty fast.

Re: The Interchange (At Target Field)

Good find. To me, the most interesting part would definitely be the possibility of United getting to develop the parcel that's shown as a hotel in the renderings ASAP. I feel like the market for even speculative hotels is really getting soft. Between all of the upgrades being made to existing hotel...

No kidding. Between this and Park Vista's thread, I feel like it's the Vikings Stadium on Minnescraper all over again.

For perspective, I think that the Magellan tower has a budget of roughly $100M, and they're talking $120M here. SO this may very well be a massive project.

Re: Favorite Skyscrapers ( old, new , proposed, cancelled)

As for myself, I know it's boring and cliche because we all live here, but the Norwest Center has to be my favorite building. It looks great both at day and night, and the strong vertical lines make it look much taller and sleeker than it is (a feature shared by the IDS.) I could look at that thing...

Speed Building

Okay, I really needed to get some other people's thoughts on this. A few months back, I read about a Chinese company that built a 30 story tower in a few days. Earlier today, I stumbled across this: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2012-06/15/chinese-skyscraper-built-in-90-days The world could ha...

Re: 222 & Whole Foods - (222 Hennepin Avenue)

Haha. This is a less-than-typical situation for me (and I'm sure others here as well) where I'm not so much excited about the building itself as i am about the things that are coming with it: the Whole Foods, new downtown residents, and one less dilapidated parking lot to look at. Is it a work of ar...

Re: Fountain Residential - (2635 Fourth Street Southeast)

This is on the Planning Commission agenda for next week. Apparently, it's just called The Station on 4th now. And it looks like it'll be getting full approval. I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised with the renderings on this.

Calhoun-Isles Redesign

Thought I'd get this kicked off with a couple of articles. It looks like the park board is shooting for the stars with a major overhaul of the area between these two lakes, where Lake Street passes. There have been community forums, and designers have put forth some interesting concepts. Obviously a...

Article from F&C with some interesting development tidbits. I remember someone was mentioning the Old Home building earlier, though it might have been in another thread.

Re: Transit News and Happenings

Phil's experience might not be typical of the bus system as a whole, but as someone who used to take the 17 and 18 on a regular basis, it's definitely the norm for Nicollet Mall. The bus congestion and delays on that street are a mess. However, most of the system suffers from illogical routing, sche...

Re: Tower crane count

That I know of, one is up at Track 29, and at least three are up at the U, for the new physics building and residence hall. There's also one or two at Mill and Main.

Re: Capella Tower & LaSalle Plaza

Minneapolis has garnered a reputation in the last number of years as one of the "gayest cities in the country," so that has become a part of our identity, to an extent. Additionally, the 35W bridge is lit up in a rainbow for both Pride and National Coming Out Day. It's pretty cool to see- looks like...
