Re: Mill City Quarter - (300 South 2nd Street)

Per F&C, both phases/buildings will break ground next March-ish. A general contractor has been selected for Phase 1 (affordable apartments, possibly marketed to seniors), but not yet for Phase 2 (affordable senior only). It could very well be the same GC for both. It would be interesting to hear wh...

Re: Convention Center Hotel - (330 South 12th Street)

An interesting side note- there are currently 5 new hotels proposed in Bloomington totaling nearly 1,000 rooms. Three in the south loop near the MOA, one at PennAmerican, and the fifth near Normandale Lake. Recalling the prior discussion about absorption/demand and whether adding a 1,000 room hotel ...

agree. But I think this has been their thinking ever since they moved key staff to Wayzata; even if it is a bad idea.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Will they build spec office or not? My guess remains "yes".

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

When I heard the medallions were coming down on Monday I biked down here quickly to see the action. It was pretty slow going. They were only doing test cuts to see how far they need go to take off the medallions in the coming weeks. Here's a wider shot of the development area. I'm going to be follo...

Re: Downtown Parking

I have made a thing. That is to say, I mapped all of the surface parking and vacant lots in DT with Google maps. THis might take a little time to load/ run slowly, but it really shows how much space we still have to develop. I didn't include ramps or parking that is surrounded by structures. Yellow...

Re: Saints Lowertown Ballpark

@ Field Condition: just because something can be graphed, doesn't mean it should be. and what is "interactive" about this? It seems that it would be on a static loop of previously recorded swings- that's not interactive. @ Meander: interesting, pleasant to walk past and be around, but a person would...

The speed at which this project is moving is awesome. Lots of activity. At noon they were prepping for the concrete pour for the tower crane foundation.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

I thought the ramp was 7. I'm probably wrong though. And the 27 stories in the article is far from official. Good points. Slight tangent- one thing that bothers me a little about this proposal is it seems to me that when Ryan was facing competition from Mortenson (and other potential developers), t...

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Is this a spec office building or do they have a tenant lined up?

Re: 510 Marquette Avenue

I am shocked that this building is leasing up so quickly. But maybe it is a sign that if/when WF vacates significant SF in the Baker block or NorthStar for downtown east, those properties could equally be turned into "hip" C buildings in the CBD and also fill up reasonably well.
