Re: Vikings Stadium

I'm one of the 4 Nasa! I don't have season tickets, but I go when I can, usually a couple of times a year. The drunk driving statements actually made me laugh out loud!

She was in the band "Babes in Toyland" for a while in the late 80's. Back when Mpls was still huge in the music scene.

Re: Park Vista (2nd St S & 11th Ave S)

It would be interesting to know how quickly he has historically moved on projects once he gains properties. It doesn't seem to me that this type of property is what he would have much experience with. His resume would lend me to believe that he would be looking at multifamily housing for these, but ...

I agree. Mostly because Zigi WIlf is a major developer and I believe he owns some of those vacant properties (and maybe will work with the Strib to acquire more).
Are you sure? I was under the impression he backed out of that deal and never acquired that land.

Re: 600 5th Street North

I'm not saying that you're wrong, but I've never noticed the smell, and I've walked around the area quite a bit. I guess I wouldn't be surprised that, under certain weather conditions, it were an issue. But there are lots of places that have unpleasant smells blowing in depending on the direction o...

Re: 350 North Fifth Street

I believe they want 400k of space by 2015.

I love these buildings, they will really change the look of the neighborhood. They are sleek and classy if you ask me; I certainly wouldn't compare them to Centre Village.

Re: Lowry Avenue Bridge

It surprises me that it is that far out because they've almost finished the approach from Lowry to the bridge. It looked to me like the decking is complete. They still need to complete the reservoir for the rainwater, but beyond that it seems like smaller items to me.

Re: Saints Lowertown Ballpark

...but a AAA team would also need considerably more fan support than the Saints get. Is this true? I think the Saints still sell around 6 or 7,000 tickets to their games -- I find it hard to believe that that's very far removed from what an average AAA team sells. Heck, the Expos probably didn't se...

Re: HarMar Mall

I'm always surprised that HarMar can keep it's doors open. It's a pain to get in and out of and it doesn't really have a hip or trendy store. There is a Cub on the back side, but if you don't live in the neighborhood you wouldn't know it was there because it is completely hidden from Snelling. It re...

Re: Zip Rail to Rochester

This one actually makes sense to me because of the amount of traffic that goes to Mayo and IBM from here. I still can't make sense of the rail to Duluth, I just don't see the demand.

Re: Bennett Lumber Site

If you think uptown is congested now...
It's nice to see all this development, but there are going to be some growing pains for a couple of years until people adjust to this kind of a population increase in a relatively small area.

Re: 222

I guess some of us are just disappointed because of what could have been on this corner. When you go from the original design of 30 + stories and a design that is very upscale to this present design it's actually quite a let-down. And I know I'm beating a dead horse, but it truly is more of a suburb...

About the only option would be right on 1st Ave. but, if you've been there for a large event, you don't want to take much a way from the lobby as it already seems too small.
