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.

Has anyone seen any decent renderings of this project? A couple small images turn up in a Google image search, but that's all I can find.

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.

Re: Van White Memorial Bridge

Hopefully this project, the Lowry bridge finally opening, and Plymouth Ave bridge coming back online will give a little kick to North Minneapolis economically. Right now, there aren't really many ways in there from the rest of the city.

Re: Soltva apartments

The side of the building with the black facade looks fantastic. It's too bad they couldn't have done that instead of that tan color on the whole building. I really like the idea behind all of these "Sol-" projects, but the buildings themselves all look awful, for the most part.
