Re: 501 7th St S

This is horrible

Like... really awful. Proportions are all wrong. There's absolutely not enough units for downtown. And it meets the street in the worst way possible.

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

I'm going to vote Walz. But I'm not sure if I'll campaign for him. Few questions based on his US House website: Southern Minnesotans are uniquely interested in both renewable and non-renewable energy resources, and I value your thoughts regarding coal mining activities. Should legislation on the iss...

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

That would've come out looking like a St. Paul postmod mess. I'd rather have something minimal, but pleasant to walk by (retail!) than a statement.

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

Not from what I heard a month ago. Maybe they found another site? That corner parcel next to Fairgrounds? The 1 story building behind the Lowry building? Literally anything on Washington?

Re: City of Minneapolis Office Building - 501 4th Ave S - 11 stories / 171'

I had a dream this grew to 20 stories last night and became very BIG (Bjarke-Ingels) like. Very clear boxy.

Just for fun. No new info added.

Re: Nicollet Mall

The city did their part... now time for the DID and downtown council to do theirs. Build some planters, hang some flowers again, stop letting offices lease up ground floor space and block windows. So much of that creative edge people think is missing isn't because of the renovation was a mistake. It...

Re: Dinkytown

You know how many people go to Frank and Andrea's? And theres kind of a limited amount of retail spots left. The old Dinkytown tattoo with a broken window. The recently vacated One Two Three sushi and the basement of Pagoda (which is never gonna lease).

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The DMNA LUC agenda next week includes: An 18-20 story, 350-unit apartment tower with 350 underground(!) parking stalls on Hennepin Avenue between Washington and 3rd. It's proposed by Harlem Irving, the developers of the the Link/Fresh Thyme in Prospect Park. Tushie Montgomery is the same architect...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC Plaza Jr.) - 30 stories - 458'

We shouldn't base our iconic intersections based on the 70s and 80s. But also I think a lot of what's being said is a bit overreative.

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

9.6% margin of error and 32% undecided.

Oof

Gotta love that the GOP is falling in love with Pawlenty again. I'm confident Minnesota can remember how awful he was.

Re: The Hub Minneapolis - 600 Washington Ave SE (284' - 26 Stories)

That strip mall is dying off. And you vastly underestimate the need for coffee. I'd love to have Caribou over Starbucks. This is going to be a very successful location.
