Did you take this picture from the witches hat? I have a ton of pictures of the property. This would be an awesome photographic space once the demolition really get started.

Anyone know if there's going to be a WebCam? Would be cool to watch this project as it unfolds, right from the comfort of my own house.

The building is gone. Just piles of rubble and foundations now.

I drove past this one today and was surprised at the amount of excavation on this property. Probably not too far from starting some footings.

You need to drive closer :) There are footings underway, visible when driving on 4th St.

So I know the bottom level will be the fresh thyme grocery store. Above that there will be 300 and some apartment units. Are these units going to be for students? Anyone have any ideas as to what income bracket? Any chances of any of them being marked as affordable units?

Strib article about this development: http://www.startribune.com/prospect-par ... 392934871/
The problem with being an introvert online is that no one knows you're just hanging out and listening.
