Re: Trader Joes (Lyndale and 27th)

This is the Planning Commission doing just what they're supposed to — ensuring development happens in an orderly fashion, doesn't adversely impact the infrastructure and isn't excessively out of character with its surroundings. If they still want a Minneapolis location, they'll find one and have to ...

Re: Xcel Energy HQ

Finally - my least favorite parcel in Minneapolis! This is fantastic news, and Opus is surprisingly back in the game these days...

Re: Downtown Lunds Store - 12th & Hennepin

Have no fear! I maxed out the sketchiness Tuesday night walking around the building at 11 p.m. and looking in the spaces between the paper window coverings. Sure looks nice in there, and the liquor store is fantastic.

Re: Velo apartments

I'm pretty excited about this one. Too bad they couldn't incorporate a mural wall to honor the old site. I did a great photo shoot at the Merit Printing lot for work many years ago - fond memories.

Re: 129 Plymouth Ave N

I drive by this lot every day on my commute, and have often wondered what could possibly fill this space. It's awkwardly shaped and not very large. I'm happy to see something going in, but it does look suburban. This part of the city, toward Broadway, has made some big strides in the last few years ...

Re: IDS Center

From somebody who's only seen a few significant buildings thrown up since moving here in 2000, it seems so radical somebody built the IDS Center that tall when the rest of the city was a sea of low- to mid-rise buildings. While it may not be the greatest, it's my favorite skyscraper in any city.

Re: IDS Center

Does anybody know why the lights atop the IDS Center have been dark for the last few months?

Re: 222

Here are a few pics I took this weekend. Walking around the site, I didn't realize how much open land is north-northwest of this site. Lots of opportunities out there, but the North Loop's rapid development is impressive. http://tomabouttown.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/wholefoods_11.jpg http://tomab...

Re: 1368 LaSalle Ave development

What a beautiful rendering - can't wait to see if this happens. It is June, after all... If I had to choose which would be built - 1368 LaSalle or Nicollet and 5th, I'd go with the latter for its impact on street life, but this would be a nicer addition to the skyline.
