Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I love the skyway system. It serves an important purpose: it makes working downtown pleasurable and appealing. I question whether downtown Minneapolis would have a workforce of 180,000 if we didn't have our vibrant and quirky skyway network. Sure, if you limit or destroy the skyway, businesses that ...

Surly Brewery - (Malcolm Avenue & 5th Street SE)

Surly is making progress selecting a site for its Brewery. I'm not sure if these specifics have been revealed before. "One of the possible sites in Minneapolis is 3171 5th Street SE, a former food processing plant just east of the University of Minnesota. That location is a stone's throw from the fu...

Re: Lake & Nicollet

Get it done!

I've often heard that this is one of K-Mart's highest performing stores, which, perhaps, helps explain why it has been extremely difficult to undo this planning failure.

Re: Nicollet Residences

I'll take slicing off 6 floors over not building at all. 27 stories will still make a nice impact on the skyline.

Re: Trader Joes (Lyndale and 27th)

I support this project. I'm glad that the developer listened to many legitimate concerns and made modifications. While it may be preferred to have TJs incorporated into a multi-use, multi-story, project, I still think that this will be a net plus to the neighborhood. TJs will likely attract more per...

Re: Calhoun Square

Re: Uptown Theatre

I haven't been paying attention to this, but I love that the theatre is getting a face lift. I especially like that it will include a bar, something every theatre should have. Anyone know what the plans are (if any) for the marquee and sign? I imagine they are just leaving the sign as-is, although I...
