Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Saw that the small, middle street level bay had the windows papered over this morning. Guessing that's where the Bonobos space is going.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

A couple nice to haves in the neighborhood would be a proper bakery and an ice cream shop. Can you imagine the lines if Sebastian Joe's opened a NL location? I've lived in the NL for 8 years now and I've honestly never needed a bank. It looks like we're getting a clinic and pharmacy, which will be g...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

So it appears Rojo in the North Loop is already closed (formerly Shag Sushi, same owners). Its be great if some good Mexican went in that space. Nice! I won the bet I made that it wouldn't make it through the summer. Hopefully new owners can bring a different level of concept into the space at some...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Between those two buildings and The Maytag, there's a lot of cool restorations going on along Washington right now.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

I might be remembering this wrong, but wasn't there a plan to build a tall condo tower on that corner before the crash? That must have included the existing building then if so.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Is the falling apart building on the other corner protected or can someone demo it and build from scratch?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

The big windows are open. So at least you can see the back of the giant video board in front of them.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Didn't Bunkers have the same "argument" about the parking next to them that's going through planning?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Moving forward... it sounds like there might be something big planned for the old BZ space. Rick Nelson hinted that it would be a big deal and rumors are swirling. Something from a national brand... any ideas?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I find it fascinating when someone with a certain ideology runs into the actual implementation downsides from a business perspective and is forced to rethink things. It's a bummer that the independent restaurants have had such a rough go in the CBD, but I think it has more to do with the emergence o...

I assume the brick exterior on the addition will match the original brick?

Re: 729 Washington Av N

I live in the NL and I can guarantee you very few who do care about "protecting Bunkers (parking spaces)". Most want infill and the services that come with it.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Origami closing is a huge bummer. There will definitely be an opportunity for someone else to do sushi in the North Loop... and no, Shag didn't count.

Re: 729 Washington Av N

I'm sure it will feel like a tunnel at first, but only because right now there's a gaping hole on Washington where this is going. This has been the most obvious spot for further infill in the NL for years now... I'm glad it's finally happening.

Yeah, I'm sure they'll find somewhere to plant them. I meant as a visual inside the stadium.

Beat me too it. This is some really good news for us who don't really value sex world. In other words, the majority. Uh. I highly doubt that. Just because it's an adult business doesn't mean it isn't valued or seen as a landmark. I think the key part of his post was majority. Certainly there are pe...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Speaking for myself, I was disappointed because I don't think their food is good... not because it's a chain. I'd be surprised if it did well in that location.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I was hoping for a good Mexican restaurant to open in the North Loop at some point. Unfortunately, this does not take care of that.
