Re: Calhoun Square

I agree. The old format to me was the front door for Uptown. Now it lacks the openess to both those outside and to beckon those inside.

Re: Uptown Hotel Discussion

I went to the monthly CARAG meeting last night, where there was a 45 min presentation and discussion of the new hotel. Many positives and negatives were brought up, but much of the discussion revolved around scale. The developer seemed to pick certain phrases from the Uptown Small Area Plan which s...

Re: Uptown Hotel Discussion

Ha I was just remembering the last time I talked to the people in the house just south of this proposal, over 20 years ago, there were a wide variety of ages of people living here, with an old woman owning it. I think she owned it. I was the one getting the neighbors in the area to sign for that fir...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Is the Macy's building worth saving in the long run, assuming Macy's downsizes or leaves. Would make a prime location for a future tallest in the city.

$17 million dollar profit in 2 years, not bad. I don't recall them doing any special remodeling either.

Re: Elk Run Biobusiness Park (Pine Island)

What ramp in ZUmbrota, as there are two. The northern one has little reason to exist other than it being a state highway between Wanimingo and Zumbrota, where the southern ramp has quite a bit of businesses catering to the freeway and it's also the main street of Zumbrota as well as another state hi...

Re: Twin Cities to Eau Claire regional rail

I'd like the HSR to run through to Rochester up to the Twin Cities then over to Eau CLaire meeting up again at Tomah. However the cost would probably make it unfeasible.

This would be a lot better if it were a commercial building. As a residential building without balconies and calling itself luxury, HA.

^^^It sounds as if you are only commenting on the grass part of his idea. As for the other part I have stated the same proposal which gets no comments. I still think it's a great idea to close the street except for emergency vehicles which could activate the gates like they do with semaphores. As fo...

Re: Mortenson / USBank project - 333 Hennepin Ave E

I like those block shiny areas. From the ground it will look like there are chunks of the building missing. Dare I say iconic?

Re: Downtown East (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo / Radisson R

So are they already building The Edition? I thought that wasn't going to be built until some time after the park was in place. Or was it market conditions dictating when it was to be built? I was hoping to have the entire park in place for a bit before the apartment building was built in hopes that ...

How much better does the economy have to be before something gets done here before the mall gets the renovation and expansion east?

Re: 315 Nicollet - (Opus Ritz block)

Because they charge so much for that space. If they made the rent reasonable they'd have a business in those locations and people would go to them. The street level retail is where the owners should charge very little to get that interaction and possible tenants because of the retail activity. Who w...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

If United can't get their proposal built I think the city should step back and make a plan that is concrete in what they expect and not let them fudge their way under the proposal. I also feel that they need to open it up, when they do resubmit, to National Developers too. Give them a real time lin...

Re: Rochester

Gosh I remember the Chateau Theater in Rochester. What a beautiful theater. If anyone has been inside the Suburban in Uptown, it was like that but 10X better.

Ah, talking about the above article got me remembering of days gone by.
