Re: Nic on Fifth - (455 Nicollet Mall)

Phorio reports this building as 287.6 feet in height. For those unfamiliar w/ Phorio, think of it as the new Emporis. I know some folks involved on that site, the information is very detailed and reliable.

Cedar is still closed between 7th and 10th. There is one lane open southbound on Cedar from 12th to 10th. The 7th and Cedar intersection should open next week (Hallelujah!).

Re: Metropolitan State University Expansion

It would be nice to see LRT expand at least out to the campus. It's such a logical stop.

Re: Cossetta's Alimentari

While it did turn out better looking than the renderings appeared, this structure is still very ill-proportioned and unsure of itself. The large ground level arches suggest supports for a massive structure that isn't there, the brick doesn't match (in an unflattering way) and this building has so m...

Re: Payne-Maryland Community Center

Construction is expected to begin in the spring of next year and finish by mid '14. The relocation of the Kendall Hardware store took longer than anticipated due to construction difficulties (old building footings from a previous building on their new site).
