Re: Downtown Retail News

Wasn't there talk of a major retailer currently not in the Twin Cities looking at a location downtown? Any more information come from this discussion? I hope so! Minneapolis really seems to come alive in the evenings with people dining out and going to bars, concerts, etc. Downtown needs to create ...

Re: Pedro Park

Here's the plan for now: http://blogs.mprnews.org/cities/2014/05/artist-to-transform-gravel-pit-into-newest-st-paul-park/ More permanent plans need more funding. Nice but I am always confused as to why spend money on a temporary "fix" rather than keep that money towards the overall cost of the long...

Re: Loring Park Neighborhood & Small Area Plan

Not related to neighborhood plan - but has anyone been to the comic/gaming store on the corner of 15th and LaSalle? What a great little find. Was there today and was pretty busy with the comic convention going on at the convention center. It's stores like this that make a neighborhood unique and int...

Re: Abbott Hospital Renovation - (110 18th Street East)

Glad this building was finally rehabbed and put back to use but not impressed. The landscaping around the building needs improvement. Very cheaply done it appears - but again - affordable units which is a plus!

Me too! Just wonder if it would get past the preservationists.

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Glad to be back but realizing jut how much opportunity Mpls. (both downtown and it's more urban neighborhoods) sti...

14th and Central

I believe there is already a thread for this but couldn't find it. Anyhoo - some renderings of two competing proposals for the site.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

Taller would be cool, but I really want to see Ryan commit to developing the parcels north of the Wells Fargo building. I'd rather see something there than a few floors added to a tower.

Re: Vacant Historic Theaters in Uptown/LynLake

Zara - but I think that would be a better fit for downtown, plus seems their stores are larger, often multi-level.

Re: Mill & Main Phase II - (425 Main Street Southeast)

Sorry but they really lost a prime opportunity by limiting the height on these developments. Hopefully future new buildings built north will be taller.

Re: Nic on Fifth - (290' - 26 Stories)

I guess my concern is that from the early images it appeared the building would be further set back from Nicollet providing more space for outdoor dining, greenspace, etc. I don't understand what every building has to abut the sidewalk so closely. We are really getting a canyon effect down Nicollet.

Re: I-35W Freeway Lid Development

All for it but just don't see it happening until there is greater density/lack of building space DTW/DTW, etc. unless we start with green space.

Re: 510 Marquette Avenue

I believe there were talks to add a skyway connection to the Nicollet Mall light rail station back in the day. Kinda for it - kinda not if we're talking about continuing to strengthen street activity and redesign Nicollet.

Re: Downtown Restaurant News

I am still sad to see the independent retail stores go, but this looks like it's going to be pretty cool. While it's a chain restaurant - Mpls. scored in nabbing it instead of the burbs or MOA. Building looks great and love the rooftop deck.

Re: Pier B

It would've been great if the development would've been mixed-use with some condos/apartments or even timeshares. Duluth really needs some new housing stock and can you imagine living with views of Lake Superior?!

Re: Pier B

Updated design/plan. Groundbreaking hopefully this summer! I agree with the article's writer - the development is a huge plus for Duluth and the lakefront. Hopefully in time some of the other piers can be redeveloped, perhaps with more modern/iconic architecture. https://cdinduluth.squarespace.com/t...
