This project is up to about 4-stories now. The apartment building will be named "the Harper." A newer rendering is attached to the jersey barriers, and to my eye it looks like they changed (cheapened?) the exterior finishes a fair bit. Looks like more brick maybe instead of that limestone they had shown.

Website is up with renderings. On second glance, they may have actually reduced the amount of cement board on the facade.

This project does show some respect for the buildings around the intersection, especially those on the west side of Snelling. At street level, it works reasonably well. I'll just ignore the upper levels!

If you scroll all the way down on the website, it's amusing that they dropped the "pin" way too far south on Snelling.

re: the pin placement

Looks like they mistook Summit Ave. for I-94.

I mean, a mistake anyone could make, right? 😝

I love the way they show pedestrians casually crossing Snelling at the Hague Ave. intersection. Even crossing with the benefit of a signal at Selby can be an adventure at times!

^ luckily there are plans for ped refuge medians in the future. Only Savoy's across the street would be enough to get me to cross there.

More like mistaking Snelling Ave S for Snelling Ave N, and not actually looking at the map before publishing it.
