I’ve occasionally seen a four year image posted on Twitter starting in 2000 ending in 2017.

Back in 2015, with a lot of spare time I made this map of surface parking lots/underutilized land.

The Hennepin property map has aerial imagery from about every two years dating back to 2000: https://gis.hennepin.us/Property/map/de ... ,0,0,0,0,0

For older aerials, use MHAPO: https://apps.lib.umn.edu/mhapo/

Is that building exclusively occupied by Century Link?

I always thought that antenna structure added a lot to that building. Unfortunate that they're going, especially since the building's original form was already compromised by the addition.

I really like how the plaza work at 3rd St and 2nd Ave has turned out.

I’m guessing that the necessary maintenance costs on equipment that is no longer needed made it practical to remove the microwave horns. Is the whole crown going away? The first (bottom) layer of the crown could be worth saving, but if that has to go away as well, the building itself is a pretty decent presence on the skyline.

I saw that they started to take the lower parts of the Centurylink antenna down yesterday.

Anyone know the latest on the project just south of 10th St. and west of Hennepin? I thought they were supposed to start construction on two different hotels this summer?

Fingers crossed that they are dead, the designs were absolutely appalling and there are higher and better uses for those parcels.

Often I've thought it would be neat to put an iconic large sculpture overlooking the 35W/94/55 mess of ramps entering downtown. I was thinking just south of the Sherwinn Williams building parking lot or near the corner of it. The idea is that as people coming into Downtown via the LRT or car their eyes will drawn to something more aesthetically pleasing then the highways. Something welcome people into Downtown and represent the city.

I love this idea. I think downtown Minneapolis could use more large art/sculpture in general.
