And I realize that the amenity deck is there because of the sun, but these people are so low. Their view will be the highway. Unless the developers know something we don't know. I'd rather like to see a full rectangular warehouse type apartment with a roof amenity. I'd just make a lot more sense to me.
Sadly, developers are NEVER going to do what is better for the neighborhoods/city. They'll always orient these amenities to the sun even its to the detriment of the street view...

Is this a legitimate comment?
Seems to greatly downplay their actual visual intrusion in the rhythm of openings , but as you said, it's schematic. Thought they seem to have wanted to convey actual finishes.
This is a Sketchup model and unless the city pushes them they aren't going to make the Magic Paks look more "real." We HATE those things visually on the outside of a building so we are always trying to find ways to downplay them but this is just an architect going, "I'm just going to throw a box in here and make no attempt at reality because reality is ugly."

Junction Flats actually spent some money to hide them/integrate them into a more "decorative" louver.

I think they are true to color and detail, it's white brick and mortar which make it look kind of like an unfinished sketch up design, but I think it's fully rendered. I wouldn't be surprised if the magic packs are actually white like that.

I don't think the orientation of this building is improper at all, I think they made the right decision with the light well. Considering passive solar design techniques.

Also we're all routing for the 4 th street viaduct to come down at some point right?

This gives me a very hip bauhaus kind of vibe that I think is very different for esg. If they can't change the building type/structure/shape at least this design accomplishes differentiating itself from they other new buildings and fitting in with the historic neighborhood without looking like a yawner.

My big question is: is this s matte white brick or glazed brick that has a bit of a gloss to it. That would be pretty cool.
I agree that the "monolithic" white brick could be pretty cool and is a good fit for the warehouse district. The window patterns also are a good fit.

I say that this is schematic because it is definitely NOT a rendering - this imagery is straight out of Sketchup.

The questions being brought up about what the brick actually "is" demonstrates the schematic nature of this...

New brewery and tap room proposed in the North Loop, next to the Bookmen Lofts (which I'm moving into tonight so now I'm even more excited).

Oh I can not wait to see those plans released! I hope this means exterior renovations with a deck parallel to 5th. Perfect place for one is my opinion. Also makes me hope Steelcase is still a thing.

I'm pumped, they need to at least double the size of their current brewery. I was always wondering why there wasn't a "brewery only" thread on here. Maybe someone who has more tenure than me could do that?

This isn't an extension of Dangerous Man is it? I read this as the head brewer from DM and a few other from other breweries were quitting and starting a new brewery, Modist.

Yeah, they're already in the process of expanding their current brewery / taproom. This is an offshoot from the DM head brewer and several other people.

I don't think it's an extension of Dangerous Man, which makes it even more confusing because I've heard from friends in the industry that Lucid decided to open their taproom in the same general area, instead of Minnetonka. It sounds like this is even completely separate from that. So, 2 new taprooms right around Fulton? I'm ok with that.

From the article: Modist Brewing Co. is helmed by Dangerous Man Brewing Co. head brewer Keigan Knee and Lucid Brewing packaging and logistics employees John Donnelly and Kale Anderson...The four don't know when they'll leave their current jobs.

Sounds like one new taproom with soon-to-be former employees of DM and Lucid.

In a Facebook post linking the to Business Journal article, Dangerous Man says:
Our own Keigan Knee will be leaving us for his own adventure! It has been an amazing ride with him and he will be missed. We are excited to support him and looking forward to all the great things Modist Brewing Co. will bring. Cheers buddy!!

Here's the info I was looking for:

https://bolstr.com/the-vault/lucid-brew ... expansion/

Eric Bierman of Lucid specifically mentions adding their taproom "just a few blocks away from Target Field". So, Modist and Lucid are two different taproom projects in almost the same spot.

As referenced in an F&C article that I won't bother linking to as it's locked hard, Metro Transit is making progress on its Heywood campus expansion plans:

http://metrocouncil.org/Council-Meeting ... g-ppt.aspx

It looks like among the best possible plans for a campus which features two huge bus garages, although it's one thing to claim that active uses will front 10th and it's another thing to actually find active uses to front 10th (I would suggest a Ragstock to honor the dearly departed warehouse store). Ditto for the "re-imagine[d] surface parking." The rooftop solar and parking (the latter only planned for Heywood II) should be more achievable, although I don't know why they'd need to retain surface parking (on the interior of the superblock between 5th, Olson, 7th, and 10th Ave) if they have a 4 acre garage roof to put it on. Also noteworthy, the plan designates as "potential TOD site" the existing parking lot that I believe twincitizen once charmingly referred to as the Rape Lot.

This is from the 6/8 Met Council Transportation Committee meeting, by the way, which also had a presentation of some concepts for the Transit Police/Bro Pension Authority building:

http://metrocouncil.org/Council-Meeting ... e-ppt.aspx

Looks like a decent facility for a pointless, duplicative, bro-subsidizing agency.

(Btw I begrudgingly place this item in North Loop Neighborhood despite the fact that this isn't really the North Loop.)

Here's the detail on the Lucid brewery. So this is just north of Fulton, across from Junction Flats, correct?

I always thought that building would make a great brewery... Glad its Lucid, as I enjoy their beers more than some of the newer breweries.
