Re: Downtown Restaurant News

I didn't know whether to throw it in here or the North Loop forum, but work appears to have begun on converting the 3 story building attached to Deja Vu into the sports bar (named The Office) that was proposed a while ago. This includes a full restoration of the exterior, which I'm pretty excited t...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

This building had so much potential if renovated. Could be like The Park in NYC or another great bar/restaurant/event space.

Re: Nicollet Mall

Love the hypocrisy from those who post on this site. Many rant and rant about how we continue to get the same boring buildings going up - uninspiring, unimaginative bla bla bla and equally how great it would be for out-state developers/architects to come into the Twin Cities market. We get a an amaz...

Re: Nicollet Mall

Overall I love the design but the narrow sidewalks and center islands could put a damper on some of the wonderful sidewalk cafes along the mall but then again it appears they are placed where none are currently existing. I too say either go with streetcars or buses - one or the other. Both are too m...

Duluth definitely could use some new housing stock. I can see the challenge of building on the hill though.

Re: Minneapolis & St. Paul Fantasies and Speculations

I guess I continue to be a little perplexed by so many people's disgruntlement with the buildings going up in the Twin Cities. Are they all the most architecturally innovate in design (no), could they have used better building materials (yes), are they the tallest (no), can architects and developers...

Re: Plymouth Building Hotel Conversion - (12 6th Street Sout

All of this development is really going to change the northern end of Hennepin for the good. I hope that with the Plymouth conversion that ugly surface parking lot next to it will be quickly redeveloped. Finally appears that owners of these small surface parking lots are realizing the money that can...
