Two tidbits from the new issue of the Uptown Neighborhood News: Ackerberg is in negotiations to lease the former Figlio space. Also, it mentioned they plan to build a hotel on the empty lot in front of the parking ramp, but didn't provide any details.

Finally some movement on this. With all the residential progress this area has made there sure doesn't seem like much in the way of commercial. Now with Mozaic II being downsized it is bewildering there isn't more of a demand for office and commercial. Glad to hear about the hotel and the location of it.

A peek inside the old Primebar/Il Gato/Figlios space:

Lights were on, not that it means anything. There's some notes posted on the doors about "contractors make sure work has been approved by ownership" or something to that effect. People's Organic and whatever goes in that space will really liven up the main entrance there at the corner of Hennepin & Lake.

Also, Calhoun Square was positively buzzing this afternoon. There are tons of colorful tables in the concourse now and they were just packed with people drinking their Dogwood, doing homework, etc. It was crazy.

Haven't they also started replacing the flooring in part of the mall? I think they ripped out the old carpet and replaced it with cool looking flooring...

Figlio's/Il Gato/Primebar replacement announced:

Parella, coming in July.

EDIT: A little more information here: http://tcbmag.com/News/Recent-News/2015 ... are-Corner

Apparently some renovation plans are forthcoming for the primary entrance at Lake & Hennepin

That bus shelter looks like a great place to get burgled/molested/harassed.

The existing one on Hennepin? Or is it significantly altered in the plans? (Haven't reviewed them yet)

Really though it should just be eliminated

Reduced, not eliminated.

"Reconfiguring the current entrance will create a 957 square foot retail space -- Ackerberg said the tenant isn't yet known. The adjacent transit shelter will be downsized, but not eliminated."

No I meant the bus stop should just be eliminated entirely. Uptown Transit Center is one block away. If there is anywhere in the system where you can make a case for greater bus stop spacing, it is adjacent to major transit centers and transfer points.

Nice. Returning the entrance to the building to it's rightful place (the marquee hooks are still there) and retail where it ought to be.

Talk about an easy way to add value to a space! That's a great example of "highest and best use"....of that space.

Yeah that collage of signs is getting a little tacky. I'm glad they're leasing up the remaining spaces and all, but man...they need to spread that mess out a little bit.
