Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

That is still in discussion. My hunch is yes. In place, the Mayo area would be more student housing focused. It was something like "more housing along the river, hospital and clinics closer to the Huron Blvd freeway exit."

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

Current discussions include a brand new hospital adjacent to the new Clinics and Surgery Center, hence the recent land purchases by the U Regents. There are talks to replace the current hospital with student housing. The Mayo building is a "do not invest" property and is slated for demo in the next ...

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

Looks like one of those configurations where the back of the store faces the street.. nice.

Frankly an underwhelming proposal in comparison to how the other three corners turned out.

A sidewalk to nowhere! I'm intrigued as well... What are you supposed to do when you reach the end?! Speaking of turn islands, a recent Transportation Commission meeting agenda (for City of Edina) shows improvements for the 66th / York intersection. Plans include removal of the NW turn island, where...

Looks like Onyx landed Alchemy as a ground floor tenant. Also, had the chance to drive by Onyx on the Xerxes Ave side. Man, I couldn't help but feel a bit bad for single-family-home tenants in the area - this apartment is quite massive. I would be pretty upset if I lived within three or four blocks ...

Re: Solving car congestion by not caring about cars?

Has anybody else looked out the window, saw birds fly, then wished you could fly, then thought of helicopters, then drones were a big thing all of a sudden, then thought of something like a personal backpack drone that could fly you places like the crow flies?
