Re: Target Center Renovation

I always thought the Target Center would look better with spring patio doors. Would make for a more cabin on the lake feel. :lol:
With all the rebate savings maybe they could bring back some of the more striking features that had to be cut.

Re: Target Center Renovation

I don't have much to say except what a bummer. I knew this would happen once I read about chopping the budget down by a significant amount. If they only redo the lower section of siding and leave the top alone I wonder how much more of a muffin top this building will look like once all is said and d...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

I have to wonder what we would have seen had there been more then a month to put something together? I am pleased that it appears at least one of the ideas is taller then the WF towers.

Re: The Eclipse

I couldn't really follow all of Chauncey's post, but I was going to say that my condo building does not allow for general storage in the parking stalls.

Re: 7west – (1810 Washington Avenue South)

Thanks for the answers. I feel the look of the tower might have been better had they removed the spires. Meh it all happens to be here nor there considering we have a pretty nice looking building in its place. :)

Re: 7west – (1810 Washington Avenue South)

So far after a little digging it turns out the tower I mention sits on this site. Does anybody know any news on why this wasn't built and what we hav...

Re: The Eclipse

I for one really enjoy the look of the proposed tower(s). The bold dark almost night shade hues mixed in with golden vertical lines makes this building something I don't think is something Minneapolis has ever seen on such a large scale. The massing really brings a dominating presence to what is cur...

Re: Downtown Office Market

Is it common for the vacancy rates of class A/B/C to differ significantly? What consequences would we see if they diverged extremely (say class A vacancy 8% and class B over 20%)? I will try my hand at this one. Per Wikipedia :D "The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) classifies office...

Re: Downtown Office Market

I have to say if one is in the market for class A office space. The vacancy rates in class B and C doesn't really come into play. Seeing that the Class A vacancy rate is right around 11 percent. It isn't out of this world to imagine office space being proposed for downtown Minneapolis this coming ye...
