Re: Alia Tower - 200 Central - 483' / 40 Stories

ESG Architects posted an up to date rendering on their Instagram yesterday. Seems pretty similar. But posting it could be a sign that it’s in the forefront of conversations.

Re: Rice Creek Commons (TCAAP site) - Arden Hills

Let a site that is immediately adjacent to a freeway and 12 miles from the city center sit fallow while developers are busy building spec housing in Hanover, sure. Okay this isn't the Strib comments section, you can toss the attitude somewhere else. Just saying 1500 units in suburban "dense" develo...

Re: Rice Creek Commons (TCAAP site) - Arden Hills

Just put everyone our of their misery, Ramsey County! My development proposal for this site is to plant trees everywhere. Just because there is a large vacant piece of land doesn't mean it needs to become a master planned development. The location of this site has never made much sense for the kind...

Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

Hasn’t it always been the case in the past 70 years that developers build the street and infrastructure but “gift it” to cities to take care of forever after? You're for sure right, it just seems like a very significant amount and the storm/water infrastructure will need to be large because of the ...

Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

Strib reports that Ryan will be asking for $107 million in public funding to make their proposal happen. 1. That is a lot of money. 2. Maybe I am a bit checked out, but it seems this is the first explicit discussion of public funding that has been had for this site. I think everyone assumed the dev...

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

"Regional Headquarters" and "Campus" implies large and important in my mind so I'm instantly excited.

Maybe this will finally give 28th / Bloomington Central more of a purpose.

Re: 420 E Hennepin Ave

Building looks great. And just to contribute to the last three posts, I think Inclusionary Zoning is a bad idea. Good goals, bad idea. Should people have access to safe, secure housing. Yes for sure. Does this include brand new apartments that are easily double my rent at an "affordable" rate. I don...

Re: Southdale Library Block Redevelopment - Edina

Would seem weird—and not at all grand—to have a library fitted into the shell of an old retail anchor at a mall. Perhaps my imagination is not bold enough. Maybe Victor Gruen’s vision will be realized after all, though. I can see a totally badass gutting and reuse. It could be super cool. Just get ...
