Re: Loring Greenway

Definitely agree, and I believe that in one of the planning sessions, it was recommended to create a series of "greenways" to unite the downtown neighborhoods - North Loop, CBD, Mill District, DTE. No definitive plans / date to begin. Just another study's recommendation to the city. I am really exci...

Re: North Loop Park

Hooray! About time. Expect the new park will be very kid/family friendly. Perhaps a gazebo for free outdoor concerts? Exciting time for Minneapolis in terms of new/renovated public spaces - new library north of library, renovated peavey plaza, and hopefully greenspace/a plaza outside the new Viking ...

Re: Peavey Plaza reconstruction project

Have to say I love Gold Medal Park and Target Plaza though, both by Oslund. But yes, I agree with others. I'd like the plaza renovated/updated, but keep the fountains.

Re: AtWater Building

Great news for Duluth! I remember reading back in the day it was believed Duluth would be larger than Chicago.

I actually like the design and am glad retail is going to be included. Love the idea of rooftop deck. Does the new Sheraton have any rooftop bar/restaurant overlooking Lake Superior?

Re: Vikings Stadium

Question - with a new DTE light rail station eminent - what is going to happen to the arches at the current station? Considering how much money was spent to build them, not to mention how cool they are as a piece of art, I'd hate to see them simply torn down. Hopefully they are incorporated into the...

Re: Union Restaurant - (733 Hennepin Avenue)

I don't really think a 50 story building would really fit - especially next to the Teener building, etc.

Re: Union Restaurant - (733 Hennepin Avenue)

Agreed! Definitely going to liven up that corner as well as the theater district. I just wish something would happen with the old building north and old Skyway Theater building.

Re: Handicraft Building Apartments

Love the idea of turning the Handicraft Building into a small MN historical site or MIA satellite site!! You should seriously contact someone about this. Downtown could use a prominent art gallery - again a cultural/unique draw for downtown!!!

Nicollet Ave / Eat Street - Whittier, Stevens, Loring Park

Since there is a thread to discuss what it will take to develop DTE, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in di...

Re: 222 & Whole Foods - (222 Hennepin Avenue)

The park is still in the planning stages, but it's going to happen. City leaders and business execs are really pushing for a "central park" downtown, as well as redoing Nicollet Mall.

Re: Handicraft Building Apartments

I don't believe this includes the portion of the block to be redeveloped w/ the design by Dayton. Personally - I think it's great that so many older buildings downtown are being rehabbed for reuse (old Shinder's on Hennepin, etc.). Personally - I've liked Village Green's buildings. Perhaps not alway...

Re: New Target Building - (1001 Nicollet Mall)

Thanks for posting the pics! Definitely looks better than before. Still - I'll miss having retail on this block. Also - hopefully Target doesn't intend to keep the milky white over the street level windows.

Is no one else upset about losing another older building? I'd rather have the hotel built on a surface parking lot.

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

I most agree a mix of towers and low-rise residential/townhomes is what's going to work and what the city / neighborhood''s plans call for.

I'd like to see more townhomes or better yet rowhouses/brownstones that are set back from the sidewalks giving opportunities for small yards/gardens.

Wonderful.

Look at the Wacouta park as well (again, not sure but that park may also have been ...
