Wow with this 17-story tower, the 22-story tower a block to the west, the 13-story Ironclad building two blocks east, and the 43-story condo tower a few blocks east... there's quite a change in the skyline in this part of downtown!

And there's also this tidbit from the article...
The Wilfs acquired the surface parking lot at the corner of Park and Washington Avenues in 2007 — long before construction of the U.S. Bank Stadium began — when they bought a small portfolio of parking lots from Central Parking. They also own two adjacent parking lots that are closer to the stadium and next to a light rail stop. Becker said the company is open to building condominiums as part of a mixed-use project on the other lots.

I hope those other lots don’t take too long to do something with.

Unlocked BizJournals article. Sounds like the parking will be above-ground, but as long as it's wrapped in units I'm not too concerned about that.

That's pretty nice actually! Banal, but Decent proportions, cohesive design traits, nice looking materials and street front, and hidden parking. Color me surprised!

(Unlocked) by F&C on this. Also mentions an Aeon project moving to a different parcel than proposed last year.

But hot damn I hope someone is putting regridding 3rd, plus the Washington Ave freeway interchange redesign, on an accelerated schedule.

I loved the end where they said "1500 downtown apartments proposed this year."

That's a pretty solid number for the downtown core. Would love to see it doubled ;)

Is there any precedent for this in the Twin Cities? That would really be a step toward true re-urbanization-- reclaiming our excessive freeway space for more development. A cloverleaf in a downtown core is tough.

^ this caught my attention, too. Regridding via overpasses or something more substantial?

So it's just the forum users' fantasies then? Anything official beyond someone's Google Maps spitballing? Last I heard it was that U of M cap/land bridge proposal with no funding. Even one extra bridge here would help.

If you were going to extend one street, reconnecting 4th and Riverside would at first seem to be the obvious connection. If google maps is to be believed, though, the new Vikings stadium now hangs over into the historic visual line of site that used to connect these two right of ways. Given that, and the new LRT infrastructure that's also in the way, a connection between Riverside and the stub of Third Street (which would in turn want to be reconnected to the rest of Third Street) might be the more useful, realistic connection.

If I'm not wrong, the only thing "official" that I've seen thus far about reconfiguring the 35W & 94 connection was from the "Rethinking 94" from MnDOT that was released on Aug 1st. http://www.dot.state.mn.us/I-94minneapo ... appendices

It can be found on the technical appendices T11;
http://www.dot.state.mn.us/I-94minneapo ... -study.pdf

But it is not detailed, it is just a "wish list" for now, but it is on there.

Garden Communities gave the DMNA an update tonight.

No new beyond what's been in the media, really, but literally half the residents of the adjacent American Trio Lofts were there to whine about their lost views. It was the full south Minneapolis experience. "What about my views?"" "What about our sunshine?" "This is too tall, we aren't downtown!" "Our taxes are so high! Apartments don't pay taxes!"

The owner of the Pog Mahone's/Sanctuary building stepped up for the second month in a row to say that the restaurants in his building are barely making it, and if the neighborhood wants them to survive, they need to a) patronize them, and b) not fight more people living in the mill district to also patronize them, but it didn't seem to help.

"This is too tall, we aren't downtown!"
Please tell me that's a comical exaggeration and somebody who lives in downtown seriously didn't try to argue that the Mill District isn't part of downtown.

Yeah, those comments are easy to laugh at. I can’t see anyone in the council or commission giving them credence.
