Re: Downtown Retail News

I'm still hopeful that saks might end up in this space. They did mention a few months ago that they were actively scouting other locations downtown.

Re: Alatus St. Anthony Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site)

When is this one going before the Historical Preservation Committee? Any speculation on whether or not they will be supportive of their tentative plans?

Re: Gold Medal Plaza - (935 Second Street South)

I'm somewhat surprised that nothing has happened with this site yet. With all of the momentum in downtown east and the quick sales pace of the stone bridge lofts, I would have anticipated that by now something would have started happening here.

This very well may be one of the ugliest buildings I've seen.

Re: Rental Concessions for Lux*ry Apartments

Elan Uptown has one month free.

With this project, in particular, I'm curious when they will start lowering rates. They are ridiculously overpriced now.

Re: Downtown Restaurant News

In related efforts, we're going to require that the twins offer sunglasses for everyone attending so that their eyes have the appropriate level of shading. Can we preemptively add this law to dayton's "unsession" agenda, as this is one of the most ridiculous proposals I've ever seen. I'm about as li...

Re: Minneapolis Riverfront

This is awesome. I do worry, however, that funding something this transformative will be challenging given Park plans for DTE and the Gateway district. That said, this easily blows the other two out of the water.

EDIT: Can't forget the North Loop's efforts to develop a park as well.

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

It looks like they've added more glass to the sides than what they had on previous renderings. This is a big improvement, it was just one big hulking wall of stone before.

That said, I still think this is a fairly ugly stadium that will not stand the test of time.

Re: Uptown Retail News

I suspect it will be the space on washington ave in the mill district that is supposedly being developing for an international furniture company... If not there, probably somewhere near the Galleria in Edina.

Re: The Walkway - (1312 West Lake Street)

The number of materials used in this project is... interesting (putting politely). It almost as if this was the first building the architect ever designed so they decided to include everything they could think of; and gave no thought to how that would actually tie together.

Re: Minneapolis & St. Paul Fantasies and Speculations

Unfortunately , Opus couldn't get the financing for their original 33 story design which was better. I can't fault them for that as lenders were wary and we just were coming out the "Great Recession". However, I do think they should have modified the shorter design so the massing was less boxy and ...
