This looks like it's topped out. I hadn't realized the top floor was just going to be a part of the amenity deck. Wonder if I could pass for a student to get a tour when it opens.

I don't think this one is necessarily geared towards undergrad students. I think it will mostly be for grad students/med students/profs.

I probably don't pass as a student, but I'm definitely going to get a tour of this thing once they're showing units.

Just say you're a non-traditional student. Or more likely you don't have to say anything - the University has plenty of students older than 22.

Have they announced the retail stores going in here? I figured a coffee shop was going into the Link, but I don't think that is going to happen anymore maybe one will open again here.

View from the train. There seems to be more going on at the street level than is obvious from the webcam, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it feels when complete. Because the south side of this corridor is already so urban and because the building has a hip that matches the line of its neighbors, as a pedestrian or transit rider, The Hub really doesn't stick out or feel like it's looming over you.

I think it looks pretty slick from the other side when crossing 94 bridge heading east

There is going to be a Caribou on the corner of the 1st floor. This reminds me how Burger King and McDonalds used to always be on opposite corners. I was hoping for a small chain since Expresso Expose closed up shop, but the coffee world is pretty cutthroat so I guess the economics weren't there. I actually like the other Caribou in Stadium Village.

This strikes me as a pretty odd decision. There is already a Caribou in the Burger King strip mall by Huron, a University-run Caribou in the basement of Moos Tower, and a Starbucks across the street in the Graduate. Wondering if Caribou's end goal is to close the strip mall location, because it almost certainly gets less foot traffic than the Hub, and the U of M Foundation seems to be looking at the site as high priority for redevelopment.

That strip mall is dying off. And you vastly underestimate the need for coffee. I'd love to have Caribou over Starbucks. This is going to be a very successful location.

Yeah, this location is going to kill. The Moos Tower coffee shop is kind of invisible - I was only vaguely aware it existed when I was at the U and you have to walk into the basement of a building to find it. Some folks just prefer Caribou over Starbucks or vice versa.

With nearly 3000 students living right there in the Superblock and the folks in The Hub and nearby apartment buildings, there's no shortage of people who will stop in.

Plus, there's if you think that's a lot of coffee shops near each other, have you seen downtown Minneapolis Caribou locations?

I wonder if this Caribou opening caused the Dunn Bros at 2650 University Ave. St. to close. It is probably unrelated but they have the same clientele. The Dunn Brothers was always busy so no idea why this placed closed after 12 years.

Uh...what Dunn Bros? The address you gave goes to some low-slung event center? In any case, a coffee shop at 27th and University isn't competing with an on-campus coffee shop. This new Caribou won't even be competing with most other coffee shops on campus - coffee is one of those hyper-local things!

We all realize that there was a coffee shop on that corner before this project, right?
