Good! Street level will bring more customers to Kisa with more signage!

Those 3 spots on the 2nd floor from where Kisa was to Fixology, it would appear, are being turned into one. It is all walled off today. I would guess it'll be something like the Ameriprise office across the hall.

Hope so. Nondescript financial services that no one just wanders into and would only be open during business hours anyway are a perfect thing to have up on the skyway level.

Confirmed. It'll be a City National Bank, which appears to be focused on small businesses and professionals. Good thing to have hidden from the street, while Kisa gets a storefront on 6th.

I guess Target finally got the message that their own hometown is just as important as Chicago
$10 million renovation

I call bs on those renderings. The vegetables appear fully stocked and there is no visible wilt on any of them.

It actually already looks a bit dated.

I don't get what they're going for there. It looks too muted and plain.

Landlords and tenants are banding together to save Nicollet Mall retail.

Is the mall still on track to wrap by fall of this year?

I just wondered the same on the mall thread. Even if it's done this year, there won't be any time for business to come back before the superbowl. I'm getting worried that we've gone past a tipping point. Any why so little progress? Why is the strib article ignoring the obvious fact that we just spent 2 years repaving and replanting a road with nothing to show for it but a ripped up central core and a bunch of empty storefronts? That's the real story IMO. The one we should be learning from.

I think people on University Avenue said the same thing around December '13.

Though we (unfortunately) won't have LRT under Nicollet after this.

I hope you're not serious. They've unexpectedly closed in Ridgedale and Rosedale in the past couple weeks.

I assumed Didier was being sarcastic... seeing as all the mall outlets closed, but at least the downtown outlet stayed open with a rebrand.

Cosi's went bankrupt nationally. It is in the process of being replaced by another restaurant.

Minnesota store in IDS... closed or renovation? Today it's cleared out and the glass is frosted over. I had noticed they had an inventory sale recently.
