The Nicollet (at Nic/Franklin) is now, or will soon be The Reverie - a vegan/vegetarian joint: http://www.reveriempls.com/
http://www.southwestjournal.com/news/bi ... -new-home/

After only operating as Reverie for a year and a half or so, their lease is up and are looking for another spot. It doesn't sound like they're too tied to the Nic-Franklin area and would potentially consider locations all over south/southwest. Any ideas where this growing plant-based restaurant should go?

I would go literally anywhere for their jack fruit tacos and I'm a meat eater.

I wonder if they want to continue being a venue as well, and what that allows for future locations

How did I not know there is (or will be) a St. Paul Bagelry location at Nicollet and Diamond Lake Rd? These are the only edible bagels I'm aware of in the Twin Cities and now no longer require a trip to Roseville? This could be dangerous.

Chroma getting a pinball bar and Mort's sold. Hopefully Mort's doesn't change toooo much. I'll miss Gringo's but it always seemed underutilized.

It's true. I went last week. It was fun, though loud and busy. If you like pinball even a bit, I'd recommend popping in at least once. If you don't like pinball, do not bother.

They did have a really good selection of games. My two favorites were Star Trek: TNG and Wizard of Oz. So elaborate!

Also, the hot dogs were tasty!

This is random, but does anyone know the history behind those residential towers between Franklin and 94, just west of the river? I'm curious what the circumstances were that led to them, since I can't imagine towers like that being built in a location like that today. Are at least some of them government funded?

They played a more important role in neighborhood activism around Milwaukee Ave than many would like to admit: https://i2.wp.com/streets.mn/wp-content ... .png?ssl=1

I don't think preservation tactics have ever strayed too far from fearmongering.

There are scattered site low-income housing towers all over Minneapolis.

Milwaukee Ave is a real treasure, though. Glad to have it *and* the Seward Towers.

Not sure exactly where this should go. Move if necessary.

I'm not really happy about taking existing affordable housing and upscaling it. This is very different than building on an empty lot.

Maybe a way to protect this "naturally occurring affordable housing" would be a different sort of inclusionary policy. For developers like CPM here to buy these old sites, preserve them as lower rents and keep them well maintained, and earn some sort of credits on new construction elsewhere in the city.

I'm sure it would require all sorts of legal wrangling that isn't even possible, but I'd love if the city or the public housing agency had a right of first refusal on any building (or buildings that meet a certain affordability level or whatever) and have the ability to, without specific council action, immediately sell bonds to finance the purchase of the building. I'd bet that with a lot of these buildings, considering the city has a much lower cost of capital than private developers, they could probably pay for themselves with rents or require very little real subsidy.

Does the city have a history of renting small properties? Who would act as the property management?

I like the idea, I'm just curious.

There may very well be some opportunities if Stephen Frenz loses his license. Some of his buildings in the Uptown and other areas may be purchased and upgraded with higher rents. Others, may end up with new owners and the the same trouble for years. It'll be nice if the city or someone were able to step in given that with these naturally occurring affordable properties the market isn't doing so well. I guess some non-profits have looked at some of the properties. I always thought a Coop of some sort would be a great way to keep many of them affordable.
