Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I wasn't at the groundbreaking today but the new video the MNUFC put out today of the stadium was amazing. It's going to be a massive net positive for all parties. Here is my current read on the ongoing redevelopment saga. I have zero inside information so I'm just taking an educated guess based of...

Re: Et tu, Walmart? Then, fall KMart

Speaking of Walmarts and Kmart areas, would Walmart ever consider an urban format store in Minneapolis? Nicollet-Lake redevelopment, or the old Rainbow space at Hi-Lake ("Downtown Longfellow" excuse me)? I think the best way for Walmart to enter Minneapolis would be to replace the KMart on Nicollet...

Et tu, Walmart? Then, fall KMart

With the news that the KMart on Robert St in West St. Paul(not to mention the Moorhead store and 62 other non-Minnesotan KMarts) closing soon, let's start a guessing game on when KMart closes their remaining Twin City area stores(and who replaces them). My guesses: Minneapolis: Probably re-developed...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I'm more interested in what will happen to the KMart store off I-35E and Maryland, not just the Sears store just west of the capitol.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Lots of polka music this morning. Poor connection to the park currently, but maybe that will change once all fencing is down. Will event screening always be as it was today? I hadn't imagined you'd wait in a crush of people on Chicago avenue and was surprised by that. I happened to see most people ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

For the longest time, I had been torn between going to the open house and waiting for another time, say during one of the State Soccer or Football championships. But today, I decided to see about getting a ticket. I snagged one for Sunday, starting at Noon. Can't wait to actually see what's on the i...

Re: "A Line" Snelling Avenue Arterial Bus

I know for a fact that there can be nothing done about this, but why on earth did they not build a stop directly at the Midway Parkway entrance to the State Fairgrounds?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Keep all eyes and ears on the lookout for any leaks. The NFL says it has the schedule ready to roll out, but is not yet ready to announce a day to roll it out.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

I just found out that Wetzel's Pretzels is now at the mall, but I'm not sure where it is. It's only their 2nd location in the state(Mankato was first).

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Heads Up! The Vikings will reveal who their first preseason opponent today at 3. Everything I've seen points to a week 3 home opener, possibly on National TV.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

In the case of the Jos. A Bank location on Nicollet Mall, their sister store Men's Wearhouse is two blocks down the mall, so closing the Jos. A Bank location makes sense. Also, as has been mentioned, this is part of a wave closures by their parent company. About 250 stores are closing within the com...

Do the current Go-To cards work with the new readers? I'm curious because the card that I have is 3 years old and I'm thinking about buying a new one.

The US Bank Stadium Twitter account has this gem: https://twitter.com/usbankstadium/statu ... 88?lang=en

Oh, and on the interior webcam, there's water leaking into the western upper deck.

On the webcam, they're removing some of the zinc cladding on the easternmost portion of the north side. Any reason why?
