The restaurant space at the Variant is going to be a First Draft Taproom & Kitchen, a pour-your-own place. I'm assuming the same company that's in Denver (when you google the name).

The article is locked, but if you search the name and Minneapolis you can find the full article posted elsewhere...

Tidbits:
First Draft Taproom & Kitchen will open on the corner of 4th Street North and 6th Avenue North in the new Opus Group Variant apartment building (324 6th Ave. N.). The 4,600-square-foot concept will offer 54 taps of rotating brews. Most will be Minnesota-based selections.

The self-dispensing tap beer system works like this: A customers' ID and credit card are checked by a staff member. You're then given a card, which you scan on the wine/beer/cider tap of your choice to start pouring. Customers are charged by the ounce.

First Draft will also have a full-kitchen that will serve shareable plates in a counter service setting. The menu is still being finalized; it's possible ownership will host pop-up events for area chefs.

First Draft Taproom & Kitchen is slated to open in the early summer (it will also have a patio area). It will hire 25 to 30 people. The concept was designed by Minneapolis-based Studio M Architects.

Agreed! Close to Target Field, Modist & Fulton, but easy to still get to from Washington. I'm excited!

Good news about the coffee shop! Who's behind the Urban North Twitter account? It's gotta be a streets.mn-er...

Riverwalk Townhomes and Flats sold for $19.2 million on Dec 15.

https://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/ ... -sell.html

I used to live here for 2-3 years. I only moved because my fiancé had a house in Como Park. At the time (2010-ish) I was only paying around $750 for a 1 bed flat. Lofts in the nearby area were already around $1100. I thought if they spent a little money to bring them out of the 80's kitchen and baths, they could significantly raise the rates. It will be interesting to see if they get remodeled.

Think this building is protected by a historical designation?

Heh. I used to live in the Lindsay Warehouse when it was apartments in 2003. It was hella expensive even then. I got booted out by a condo conversion.

Seems a little low-density for the area.

They had briefly proposed a higher intensity redevelopment of the site, but apparently felt like they didn't get the interest they were looking for.

Schafer Richardson can't. They tried with Montage/Nye's and folded pretty quickly.

I like the concept, but couldn't they add a couple levels of apartments or condos above it? Not exactly the highest and best use ...
