Completely agree. I hope they don't try to do anything tacky (a zip line?! Seriously!?). Just do something classy and timeless

Re: The Walkway - (1312 West Lake Street)

I agree, trying to reserve judgement until I can see the final product here. One of the things I do find odd is that they choose to go with pine trees for the sidewalk.... Again trying to reserve too much judgement though.

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

anyone notice the shadow in the lower right hand corner of the updated image? Are they assuming the ugly and dilapidated star tribune building will stick around?

If rumors are not useful to you, or you are annoyed by the inherently speculative nature of them, why are you reading the rumors thread?

Re: Nic on Fifth - (290' - 26 Stories)

I'm very curious how the color panels on the parking ramp will turn out. I hope they don't turn out like the color panels on Mozaic.

Regardless, this is looking very nice.

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

You know, I actually agree with some of the preservationists above. In fact, lets take it one step further, we need to preserve all of the parking lots in Downtown East! These are architecturially significant and represent a great period of time in Minneapolis' history! These lots reflect Minneapoli...

Re: Nicollet Mall

I recognize this won't be a popular comment on here but.... To some extent I see her point. From an aesthetic standpoint, the current mall really doesn't look that bad (recognizing there's structural issues that need to be improved). The mall itself (sidewalk and streetscape, NOT storefronts) still ...

The expanded sidewalk along here is going to go a long way to enhance the pedestrian experience in uptown. That said, there is no way I would ever live in the building. Hopefully this invested in some good soundproofing and blinds!

Re: Downtown Office Market

Since we're on this (off) topic, what the overall cleveland skyline lacks is building density. From a distance, it looks like just a couple of random buildings, somewhat near each other. Conversely, here in mpls, we have a very nice dense skyline which looks like a real city. My point, is that had t...

Pretty interesting view of uptown. Definitely demonstrates the potential for future development, especially along the south side of the greenway.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Its great that all of these developments are taking place, but I wish there was a greater focus on enhancing the livability of this area. There is virtually no charm in this area and walking around during the day is a truly awkward experience. The talk of a park is a nice start, but its just a start...

Re: The Pedestrianization of 29th Street

It's unfortunate that this wasn't an idea when Mozaic was built. There's essentially no pedestrian access to the Mozaic Art Park from Hennepin (no side walk, just a bus turnaround). With the the entrance to the Mall area being redeveloped, it would have been awesome to have a continuous pedestrian e...
