Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Is the video board on the front face of the stadium finished? Will that much of the frame remain exposed? Seems like it's been like this for weeks, but I would have expected it to be finished by now. The thing is awful looking the way it is.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

I'm sure these questions are answered somewhere within the 28 pages of this thread, but I can't find them easily: What are the plans for the section of 5th street that they've closed off and are currently doing construction on? Will that be reopened? Are they planning on tearing down the arches at t...

Re: Downtown Parking
