I hope something gets built that is an asset to the community and worthy of the site when the time comes. There are very few locations on the intersection of two major roads with freeway access this close to Downtown. (NE Mpls is also minutes away.) As long as there isn't anything atrocious like the storage place they're building down Washington Ave

From the article, the developer seems to have a very good finger on the pulse of this area.

Here's another quote from him:
“Coloplast built that huge medical campus and I think that set the bar and set the standard of which I think will be an example of how this area will evolve,” he said.

It's interesting how this area is changing. The city wants to keep industry, but North Loop and other developments are encroaching. The pushback of the N 3rd St and 10th Ave N project, the development of the housing at Plymouth Ave N and W River Parkway. I also see more commercial business's moving into the area between the harbor project and North Loop.

Northern Metal is also on the southern half of the block. With them gone this will be worth more and maybe they'll buy that parcel

Proposal by Satori to fill a space on W Broadway where a building burned down a few years ago. I don't know what the status of the larger portion of their plans is. I don't recall seeing many proposals to fill in gaps on these old corridors. If he gets this built it will be interesting to see if any other proposals come. I'm especially interested to see what goes in BJ's location. I thought the unrest would deter people from wanting to move into the city. I guess we'll see.
