Re: Downtown Lunds Store - 12th & Hennepin

Love the mirror-glass cladding above the entrance to the liquor store. This will be such a marvelous addition to Hennepin Avenue.

Re: Minneapolis Armory

Go4: Interesting you mentioned the impound lot area. It was the first location I thought of that could be ideal for such a tennis facility. Not only, as you mentioned, would it be on the SW LRT route, it would be another connective link between downtown and The Walker Art Center. Besides the transit...

Re: Northstar

For all of the knee-jerk folks out there who instinctively holler boondoggle when they read these falling ridership stories, need to understand demand for the system would be much greater if trains ran every hour until 10 or 11pm. Currently, they run in the morning and then sit idle for a large chun...

Re: Minneapolis Armory

Minneapolis has an abundance of outstanding entertainment and sports amenities. But one of the few things our city sorely lacks is a flagship tennis training-and-tournament facility that could host national amateur and professional tennis tournaments. The Armory, if retrofitted with a sliding roof, ...

Re: Block E

Assuming the Block E casino idea is dead, the challenge remains: What to build at this lynchpin downtown site. The notion of a tech mall with, wait for it... a Best Buy store, is underwhelming, hardly the solution capable of injecting a sense of raw excitement capable of drawing suburbanites and tou...

Re: Target Center Renovation

So, if this remains on schedule, all of the renovations should be complete by Fall 2014. Hopefully, it could be done in time for Major League Baseball's 2014 All Star Game in early July. The summer classic is expected to be awarded to Minneapolis and played at the adjacent Target Field. The design c...

Re: Orchestra Hall renovation

Wow. I can hear the theme music from 2001: A Space Odyssey in my mind as this new enterprise is launched. Thanks for taking the time to establish this new electronic forum. I've missed the lively development discussions. The new 3D clip of the Orchestra Hall redux is inspired and offers the wonderfu...
