There must be plans for something else at this location in the works.

There are many buildings in Dinkytown I would love to save. This is not one. Have always thought this building was an eyesore

I'm sad about Blue Serge, mostly because my moms wedding dress was made there when she went to school here. Dinkytown Opticals and Milo's all can stay in Dinkytown. There are only 3 retail spaces left minus the massive CVS. Hair Shaft, the dude is like 80 something years old. He'll probably want to retire. Underground Press needs space to press T's, but I think most of their business could be done through E-commerce. My hope is the neighborhood doesn't stop this project like they "stopped" the CPM project.

Although it was an ugly and albeit bulking and bad design, it was also a ton of housing. If we could get a little retail row that mirrors the Dinkydale, putting the lobby at the very end, that would be wonderful. As for this site, the building isn't going anywhere.

is great.

That lone house on 13th Avenue is under different ownership. Figure they really need to acquire that property to make this pencil out.
