I'm pretty sure that's KSTP's "illustration" of the air rights development slapped onto an old rendering.

To my knowledge, there aren't any updated renderings of the entire DTE area that include the parking ramp development. Heck, they haven't even updated the renderings to include the streets that will be cutting up the park.

It's also important to remember that the air rights development is essentially a separate project from the Wells Fargo blocks. The proposed hotel/apartment tower hasn't even sought approval by the city yet. Only the sale of the air rights was approved.

Strange to have the groundbreaking ceremony about a month after they actually broke ground...

I think this is pretty common with any project. It is hard to have a ceremonial ground breaking with pavement covering the entire property. I am sure all of the top soil will be exposed, and they can each dig a shovel of dirt to start out the real excavation.

Sure there were updated renderings, KSTP is just awful about this kind of thing.

But none of the renderings illustrate the Wells buildings at 17 floors, that I am interested to see.

Isn't the new Vikings Stadium drawn too close in that view? If I'm remembering correctly, there's a large plaza beyond Chicago Avenue before the Stadium, right?

Yeah. 4th St by the new buildings also doesn't line up with 4th St by the existing buildings, making the park look bigger.

Yeah, they are increasing the setback along that building face, but probably not by as much as that rendering would suggest.

Rick Collins, the Ryan Cos executive / deal-making guru in charge of this project has left Minneapolis to head Ryan's Southwest region operations, based in Phoenix (boo, hiss). Cheers to him for getting this deal done.

Yikes, I wonder why Phoenix would be more appealing (other than maybe the weather, if you don't like seasons). Good luck to him. He's done some good things here.

Probably that Phoenix needs some leadership that can get some projects underway. Ryan has a full plate here in MPLS at the moment. There are others in the organization and can get the projects to completion. I have no real knowledge of what the real estate market in Phoenix is like at the moment. But if their state politics is any indication, then their in a mess of trouble.

Ryan is pretty busy in Arizona - They're currently working on the biggest development deal in the states history in Tempe. http://vimeo.com/71303533 The old regional president retired and Rick will take over. Sadly :(

If Rick did such a good job with keeping all the pieces of the many MPLS projects in line. Three and probably counting, for projects all going on about the same time. Then he would definitely be the man to make sure that all is in order for the big project in Tempe. Prove yourself and you get promoted. I'm sure that the MPLS office has some depth of talent to keep all of the projects on track here.

He's probably a snow bird and is getting an early jump on winter, since 56 degrees and rain everyday is the forecast through August..

Surprised that no one has posted on this in 5 days especially since they had their formal ground breaking yesterday. No one there? No pictures? Oh well. On a side note I was hoping that Ryan would have released their final proposal of their plans for the air rights above the parking ramp.
