Re: DTE: Wells Fargo, Radisson Red, Edition Apts & Millwright Building

Does anyone know what the deal is with the scaffolding on the west tower at the top?

Also, looks like outdoor patios on the top of those buildings for the workers. That's pretty sweet.

They can do a retroactive sales tax break. It has been done before.

Re: Denver

But, MN pioneered that idea and implemented it with the Met Council decades ago.. Denver is ahead because of dedicated $$ put into that system. We need that, and the legislature is the one putting the brakes on it at this very moment. I should say, one party in one House..

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

Again, I never said it was a main reason for companies leaving. I think my two posts have been pretty clear. It is a reason for companies not staying. If you are happy with other companies acquiring MN companies and taking the HQ to places where it is cheaper...then there is no problem. No, it isn'...

Re: New Kraus-Anderson HQ (9th St. S/5th Ave. S)

You're right! And it did kinda look like an original building with an addition later. Maybe original had a basement.

Was surprised there was no basement in the KA HQ. Makes for a quick demo though!

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

The NIMBYism isn't affecting the debate at the Capitol at all. It is more the politics of the House Republicans wanting a large tax cut (with this in that bill) and the Democrats reluctance to allow a tax cut in order to get a stadium. To democrats, it could be better to have no tax bill at all, thu...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Informational only hearing.. We won't know if this passes or not until the very end of session. No tax bill, and this could be in trouble. Very unlikely this moves on its own.

Re: Target Center Renovation

This looks a lot better. Will have to see how the final result turns out, but definitely has the potential to beautify a truly horrible looking building. It should create a move lively and inviting pedestrian experience from Target Field and the Ramps to the rest of downtown. Get more of those baseb...

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

Nearly all of the comments on the Strib article are trash (per usual), but there was one critical of James Corner that I had to agree with at least a little bit. I think there's some truth to the notion that JCFO was the wrong firm for this project. They hit a big home run with the High Line, and w...

Re: New Kraus-Anderson HQ (9th St. S/5th Ave. S)

This proposal really excites me! Hopefully really invigorates this area and brings some development to the Thrivent blocks!?
