Re: Downtown Parking Facilities

If this place has been an auto repair shop for this long I am guessing there would need to be some soil remediation of some sort which would hamper any sale of this property, especially if it involves new development. The only way they give this property up is if the city takes it.

Re: Ironclad Apartments & Moxy Hotel - Washington & Chicago

In the images I've seen it looks like they may be using a couple of courses on the corner. It's hard to tell if they are re-using the current stone or recreating the look for nostalgia sake.

Re: My Pillow

This is not a special it is a new look informercial. It has aired a couple of times before. I wouldn't trust that guy as far as I can spit.

Re: Century Plaza redevelopment - 330 South 12th St

Note: for archived discussion of this site (mostly a bunch of rumoring about a fake convention hotel, but also interesting conversations), see here: https://forum.streets.mn/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=407 I'm not sure how fake it was? There were studies done on developing a hotel on the site. In the end ...

Glad to see they're getting new seats. Hard to believe that the current ones are almost 20 years old. They are truly disgusting though!

Re: Target Field / Station and United Properties hotel development

I didn't think United Properties did "creative". They ignore both function and form and go for bland and inexpensive. I fully expect gray and looking like it belongs in a suburb.

Re: 695 and 699 Lowry Avenue

For at least 5 years there has been a sign on the building showing a redevelopment plan. It would be great to see something built here. There is an apartment building being built just behind the building and another lot on the block directly south that would be nice to se something built on as well....

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

So if we disagree we're conditioned? There are plenty of cities around the country with no skyway system and downtowns that are desolate. San Antonio's riverwalk is a unique feature compared to other cities, why not try to make the skyways a more positive experience by creating more open areas with ...

Good for him. At least I know where I won't run into him.
North Loop is pretty much skyway free, he should be happy there.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I have a newspaper clipping of the Normandy Inn development. I believe the larger tower was 50 stories and the shorter one was 30 stories. I'll see if I can dig it up. I have to believe the hotels around this are licking their chops with this news! I would think they bring in a lot of business travel.

Re: CPM North Loop Office Building - 419 Washington Ave N / 420 N 3rd St

You're not talking a 50 story building here. The fact that the Ford building is a block away makes that argument seem like a stretch.

Re: RISE at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

I drove past this one today and was surprised at the amount of excavation on this property. Probably not too far from starting some footings.
