Re: Cancer and Cardiovascular Research Building

I was in this area over the weekend and noticed a tower crane behind this building. I walked towards the back and they seem to be putting in some kind of foundation/concrete pillars. Anyone know what this could be for? It's the final building in the Biomedical Discovery District Plan, a Microbiolog...

Re: Lyndale Garden Center Site - Richfield

I think the construction up to now is just for the new Lakewinds Co-Op. The apartments are in the far northwest corner of the site. Coincidentally, it looks like it will start very soon, as the project was just awarded funds from the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. http://www.mnhousing.gov/wcs/Sat...

Re: Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant Redevelopment

If not the old section of plant, at least they could try to save the entablature on the north side. I took pics of these earlier this summer; fantastic marriage of industrial and classical themes.

Drove by this today. Two new banners are up, one for Bader Development, and the other for the development, with the name "MartinBlu". Couldn't find anything online as of today, except that the assumed name "MartinBlu" was taken by Scott Bader on October 1st, 2013.
