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

I saw some wall sections being carried into the retail space along marq. Also so more papers taped to the walls on the interior IS this one spot or a few spots? Glad to finally see something going in. I suppose no restaurant along Nicollet will want to set up shop until after the Xcel building is f...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

If they don't connect the Wells Fargo buildings apartments to the skyway that's a huge missed opportunity. Where did you hear that they won't?

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

The proposed Armory redevelopment may connect into the skyway system bringing in the HCMC and there skyway connecting different buildings and parking lots into the system. Additionally the Post Office suggestion of being redeveloped into some type of market, if a skyway connection ever makes it int...

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

I don't understand how this conversation got racial. None of these are racial issues. I think many people focus on race too much. It isn't relevant or productive. There are a few things downtown that can cause problem for people. They range from unpleasant to concerns for livability. None of these i...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

There is construction going on in the empty Centre Village convenience store space.

The building permit is issued to Fresh Market. Looks like it's another convenience store.

There is a backhoe on the Portland Tower site. It looks like they are getting ready to start construction.

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

I think the reason no building has been taller than the IDS is because of the weird Minnesota culture. There is a certain segment of the population that thinks it would be rude or unnecessarily competitive to make a taller building than the IDS. My question is: why not 100 stories or 120? My choice ...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I'm all for the skyway being open later, but I don't think there's much incentive for many of the businesses to stay open late. Yes, it would be nice for those who live downtown or work afternoon of evening shifts, but there's simply not enough demand to make it financially feasible. Let's not forg...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

With the expanding skyway system and the increasing downtown population I think it's time for a discussion about keeping the skyways open later. I also think it would be great if more of the shops on the skyway were open evenings and weekends. I know many people on this forum think skyways are bad u...
