Re: 1810 Apartments – (1810 Washington Avenue South)

Drove by today, and the parking ramp is on its way down. It'll be nice not to have to look at that thing anymore.

Re: Amundson Hall Addition

Very nice! For such a (relatively) small addition, it sure adds a lot of character to one of the less attractive buildings on campus.

Re: Lowry Avenue Bridge

I don't know for sure, but I have a theory: Up until the early 80's, I think, I-94 only went as far north as the Dowling exit and entrance ramps. I don't know why they chose to end it at this point, but I suspect that those ramps are too close to the Camden and Lowry bridges to make adding ramps the...

Re: The Interchange (At Target Field)

Cool news: Knutson has three webcams up for the construction! Hopefully this starts to become a more regular thing.

Re: Calhoun Square

According to a Strib article, Republic will be opening a second location in the old Independent space later this year! I'd throw in a link, but I'm on my phone. Regardless, great news as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Walker Library

Hennepin County Library's page for the Walker states that it will be closing on September 22nd; I assume this will mark the start of construction (or preparation.)

I think they will. If you look closely, this bridge actually appears to be a suspension bridge, rather than a cable-stayed bridge like Sabo is.

Finally, a render for the old Shinder's building/ future home of Shea on Hennepin. That roof will certainly be interesting to see.

Re: Track 29 Apartments

Well, I know this design is not going to be hugely applauded by most here, but I absolutely love those overhangs on the Greenway building. That looks a LOT nicer than I was expecting. Regardless, it's nice to finally have a rendering of this one!

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

While the obvious cause of this is that people would rather be outside for nice weather and the food trucks are giving them that option, I'd like to think that maybe their presence is helping people realize how nice vibrant streets are. http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/print-edition/2012/07/06/...

Re: Track 29 Apartments

Excavation is actively underway, and based on the swath of earth they've started moving, it almost looks like they're going ahead with both phases of apartments at once. That's not a certainty, though it would be nice.

Re: Xcel Energy HQ

This is a fantastic looking building. It looks like it'll do a great job of complimenting the old HQ and tying in with the new development in the area. It's also good to see that Xcel will be using this in addition to their old building, rather than vacating it and leaving an empty structure.

Burch Pharmacy Building - (1934 Hennepin Avenue)

Work on the building has begun. Windows on the upper floors have been removed and it looks like they've started stripping the interior as well. The plan at this point is to have a restaurant on the ground floor and office space above. As this looks like it'll be a pretty substantial renovation, I st...

Re: Uptown Theatre

Last time I saw, the tower sign had been restored, but they hadn't started on the marquee yet. I assume that'll be next. I'm really excited to see if they fixed the rotating beacon on the top of the tower.
