Have the bear climb US Bank Stadium...now that I think about subject matter...a large stylized sculpture of a sailboat might work. It would go along with other branding of the city.

Fairly sure the bear is peering into Denver’s convention center.

Seth, You are absolutely right. The blue bear is peering into the Denver Convention Center. It is one of the more clever pieces of public sculpture I’ve seen. It is actually quite striking when seen in person and delightfully whimsical at the same time. We and m any other Coloradans had bears, cougars, bobcats, mule deer, coyotes and other critters peering in our Colorado Springs windows on a regular basis, so the image of the bear looking into the building is very apt. Apparently monumental animal sculptures in Colorado turn blue. There is a giant, blue rearing horse at the entrance to the Denver airport. It used to scare our grandkids with it’s glaring, wild, illuminated red eyes.

I do think we need a "Minneapolis" sign, but not sure where to put it? St. Anthony Main? Gold Medal Park? Boom Island? Bde Maka Ska?

Beginning of Stone Arch Bridge towards downtown! Heavy foot traffic and one of the most photogenic spots in the city. I've always thought we needed a MPLS sign there.

LA Rockler Fur Co. is proposed to become 55 dwelling units!

http://minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/pub ... 175201.pdf
That deal never materialized.

New proposal:
Downtown's Rockler Fur building could become housing option for Native community
*UNLOCKED*
Submitted to the HPC: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/www/gro ... 220892.pdf

"...the current applicant is proposing a conversion of the building into 48 residential units of supportive housing for formerly homeless single adults; each unit is approximately 400 square feet. The basement and first floor would also have a community room, bike storage, laundry facility, and shared workspace. Bimosedaa is applying for state and federal historic tax credits and therefore the project will also be reviewed by the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service."

Would be renamed the Bimosedaa Building. First floor would become a lounge, with a lot of tenant amenities on the floor as described above. It's a bit disappointing that there's no effort to restore retail to this space, but it's not a huge deal. I can dream about the adjacent surface lot being someday redeveloped with a good anchor store.
