Re: TCF Bank Building Redevelopment

We've added a lot of hotel rooms in the metro, but so many hotel chains have started up new concepts (generally super modern, limited amenities, aimed at millennials and biz travelers), so there will be many brands wanting to add new facilities in walkable areas. Walkability is pretty big in the hot...

Lancer, your comments keep getting further outside of the bell curve. Nobody is saying negative about the Wells Fargo tower.

Re: 729 Washington Av N

I'm surprised how much work they're doing on this building. There's so much broken up concrete piled up outside now!

Re: Alterations?

Altug at NE Tailor was my go to guy, but he's just too busy. If I wanted something done I'd have to call him a day or so before picking it up to make sure it was done, he'd never meet a date he told you (but if you had a deadline he'd meet it, you might just need to remind him).

I'm in the franchise industry, and was recently told that Minneapolis is the #1 restaurant growth market in the entire country. With recent articles touting this tidbit, I would expect an uptick in chain-type restaurant activity in the city - including downtown. This recent economic growth has led t...

Did you update your router firmware? Mine was so bad, thought it was the computer, but all is well after the firmware update (directly connecting it to the computer).

Re: 14th and Central

Across the street is a massive piece of land. I'd hope for something much more ambitious than either of these proposals here. It could go a long way toward connecting the heart of the NE arts district with everything that's happening on Central.
