Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

It doesn't seem like there's been any work done on the north end of the mall for several months; including week days. This may turn out beautiful, but I have to imagine they wish they would've planned the logistics better.

Re: United North Loop Office Building - 729 Washington Av N

For these commercial projects that have tenants that primarily don't live downtown or in the North Loop, I'm not sure the project would even be viable without the additional parking. The train doesn't really serve the neighborhood well and bus service is awful. Seems like it would be a tough sell to...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Could they actually be taking the corner spot? Seems like that would command a higher rent than this concept could afford.

Re: United North Loop Office Building - 729 Washington Av N

I actually think these projects are doing a good job of replacing the parking they're taking with spaces that are pretty hidden from view (short of putting them all underground, which isn't an option here). Even urban neighborhoods need some parking. The train by itself isn't a total solution for tr...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Serious question: Something I really like about the North Loop right now is that most of the streets are two lane two way streets. Few turn lanes, few stoplights (mostly 4-way stops), and generally calm enough traffic levels that crossing streets mid block is pretty straightforward. How would more ...

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say most of the shootings don't happen because of random street closures.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

I'm glad it's being restored as is and not swallowed up as the base of a condo tower or a hotel. This corner has certainly taken a dramatic turn.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

With the renovation of the SexWorld building, and now this, this intersection is finally getting some much needed aesthetic improvements. Has there been any news about the extremely dilapidated building kitty corner from SexWorld? It needs a ton of exterior work. I saw an orange notice on the door ...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

...Anyone know of anything going on at 126 1st st (across from Bachelor Farmer and The Foundry)? I believe it is/was a garage door replacement shop, but i haven't seen much life there in the year I've lived in the neighborhood. I saw some brick repair work going on a few weeks back and wasn't sure ...

Oh man, I used to live a block from the Armitage location. Anything close to that would be a home run.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Do they focus on breakfast or do they do some lunch options as well? Can't wait to have some more casual lunch options.

I had no idea that we actively discourage trees and / or grass in certain parts of the North Loop.
