Re: 113 East 26th Street

Wonderful! I've been in the neighborhood 5 years now, and while there have been a lot of changes on Nicollet (Eat Street Social, Ice House, etc.), there hasn't been any new construction. Also excited to see commercial activity creep along 26th (although I still hate the rehab they did to the buildin...

Re: Eat Street

According to City Pages, Pimento Jamaican Grill (currently only location is in Burnsville Center) will be opening a second location, somewhere on Eat Street. No specifics are known yet. http://pimentogrille.com/ Oh, that's exciting. I live in the neighborhood, and there isn't much vacancy on Nicoll...

Re: Downtown Office Market

I think we will see job gains in other areas at Target, negating most of these cuts. I doubt there will be a net job loss for target hq in 2-4 years.

Also, talking with friends that work at target,this overhaul is long overdue. Short term this sucks, but it's for the best.

Re: Stone Arch 2 - (520 2nd Street Southeast)

You can see some of the glass siding from the stone arch bridge now. I'm really impressed by the presence this project has, particularly from the bridge.

Re: Betty Danger's Country Club

Demolition has begun. I drove by today on my way home from work and noticed that the old building has been completely demolished. They are moving quickly on this one.

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

The reason I would like to see a view from Washington is that I've got a feeling this is going to look like a 2 block long 15 - 20 story wall. In effect, closing off downtown from the Guthrie area. It looks like there are plazas/pathways between the buildings and the parking ramp. As long as Park a...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

wow, this is really bold. I share concerns about closing off Park and Portland; they are major arteries. But, it is hard for me to hate on a large scale park. It will be interesting to see what happens as a result. I think 3rd, 4th, and 5th Aves, as well as Washington, will suffer big time. Perhaps...

Re: Vikings Stadium

I'm not wowed but not really disappointed. Was expecting a more playful design based off the conceptual renderings. This thing is going to be massive though!

Re: 222 & Whole Foods - (222 Hennepin Avenue)

Tower on the north end is now clearly visible/framed-up. The brick looks good close up, but the other materials look very cheap. Very strong presence on Hennepin, however. You can see the tower from the gold medal park area. Pretty neat.

Re: Apartment Boom

I sure hope all the new construction slows rent increases. Rent went up $50 last year and going up $75 this year. Considering that there are slim pickings for similar apartments (especially at a lower cost), I'm staying put.

Once the podium part is built, I wonder how quick each floor will go up. One every 2 weeks?

Re: Loring Vue Apartments - (415 Oak Grove Street)

I love this building. Very sharp and clean. In person it looks even better--has a very high end feel to it (which, of course, it should). I know it's always hard to predict, but I think it will age very well.

Couldn't they incorporate signal priority into a streetcar line? Has this been done in other peer cities?

Re: Nicollet-Central Corridor

I thought it was a forgone conclusion that this will be a streetcar. Rybak is for a streetcar--are there council members opposed to rail? Wonder if this will be an issue in the mayoral race (assuming any decision gets kicked down the road).

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Nice to see the residents pushing for this. A great park and elementary school is exactly what this neighborhood needs--that and more 3+ bedroom units. If Minneapolis wants to retain a healthy and diverse downtown population, it needs more than single people and childless couples.

The number of projects per year will most likely dip, but I don't foresee multi-family construction coming to a standstill anytime soon. Job and population forecasts for Minneapolis are positive. As long as employers add jobs and people are remain interested in living an urban lifestyle, we should c...
