Anyone know of a good below-market space for Steeple People to move to?

Let 'em know if you do. If they can't find a new location, they'll close.

What about the spaces just down Franklin between Aldrich and Bryant where Lisa bender had her campaign office? Or where Quiznos was on Lyndale and Bryant?

All those spaces at 10th and Marquette remain empty, with no indication that that apartment building is ever going to actually happen.

Yeah, the Quiznos space was my first thought. But presumably they've already looked there, since you walk by it going between the store and the church.

I wonder how wide a net they're casting. Plenty of cheaper spaces available in further flung locations (Powderhorn, Nokomis, etc.), and AFAIK, there aren't really tons of other thrift stores around.

Hard to say -- since it's an outreach effort for the church, they would presumably like a location that's fairly close and isn't stepping on the toes of another congregation.

But this points to a larger question -- there seems to be a lot of sub-prime retail space that's out there that nobody is marketing very hard, and it would be better for everybody (business owners, landlords, and people just walking down the sidewalk) if we could somehow get it rented. Is this something the city could play a role in?

Anyone know the latest, what is this approved by the planning commission? I think they should be starting construction soon.

Good to see some new press about this - hopefully they'll start work on this soon.

It's been so long now --- is this still a 5-6 story Mixed use apartment/retail complex? Did the "sightline" controversy get resolved?

I'd call it Franklyn!
If you follow the timeline of this thread, it appears Wedgeguy may have coined the nickname even prior to the appearance of the "Frank-lyn-stein" cartoon that was posted on the anti-development MRRDC Facebook page. RIP Alan :(

As of several months ago, I'd heard from the developer that "Theater Garage Marquee Apartments" was unlikely to be the final name of the project. Also heard that FrankLyn or The Franklyn (or similar) was in contention for the actual name, which would be a better choice than the likely awful alternatives an overpaid marketing consultant would come up with. Corny? Maybe, but at least it doesn't have numbers or anything.

Demolition set for Franklin/Lyndale site; Steeple People finds new home
https://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/ ... eeple.html
*LOCKED*

Tidbits:
Steeple People is moving into 1901 Nicollet Ave., across the street from Plymouth Congregational Church. It intends to open in February and will be called Old School by Steeple People. Its original store, at Lyndale Avenue and Franklin Avenue, closed in March to make way for an apartment deveopment by Master Properties.

Master's project includes 111 market-rate apartments, a 7,100-square-foot restaurant space on the first floor and a 1,100-square-foot retail space on Lyndale Ave. Project Manager Elizabeth Danielson said Master Properties is starting demolition work next week with construction to follow.

Completion is expected in early 2019.

Perfect place for them to move.

I wasn't able to get any pictures, but I happen to be walking by the corner of Lyndale and Franklin about 10 minutes ago. They are taking down the buildings. I heard a huge portion of one of the buildings fall just as we were walking by.
