I would pay a dollar fee to not have to use those slow piece of shit electronic pay boxes where the screen doesn't work when it's cold out and the credit card slot doesn't work half the time no matter what time of year it is.

This guy is projecting an ad on the Ceresota building. Is this allowed? Shouldn't be.

Well, did you ask if he had a permit? Cause I think it's allowed if you have permission.

I couldn't get much information out of the guy; just that he's a freelancer, and that he "put's it where they tell him to." He wouldn't say who "they" are. I didn't think to ask if he had a permit, unfortunately.

Here's a company that offers the service, and lists Minneapolis as one of their markets:

"Guerilla Projection advertising is the projection of advertising images or video content to create instant digital billboards on the exterior of building surfaces at night without city or property owner permission."

I feel like if this were my business model, I probably wouldn't foreground the "no permission" part.

Also, I'm not sure where to put this, but there was also a rendering for a project on West Bank which appeared to be on the "Love Power Jesus" block (not sure if it was the whole block or just part) showing a tower of some height, a bit taller than the Courtyard Hotel. It looked to be residential and was titled "Heptagram" but I can't find any other information about the project. Probably quite preliminary. The design looked pretty good but I only saw it briefly.

There's a ton of room on the back half of that block, would be a great place for something tall.

I'd chain myself to the door if they tried to demolish the Bullwinkle's building, though. 1890!

Agreed, it's a nice row of storefronts that just need a little investment.

6 stories of workforce housing with retail (and pretty god damn generic).

Do you mean the outside of the building is Generic?

I'm a little confused. Doesn't Hubert's own the NW corner of this lot where the billboard is? I thought I read in the article where they announced remodeling that they didn't want to sell.

This is showing the NE corner of 7th & Bud Grant Way, from what I can tell. My guess is that Hubert's location is hidden behind this building in the rendering.

The Northstar Center is getting a NRHP nomination for some godforsaken reason:
http://minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/pub ... 178752.pdf

Even worse, they're codifying the 1960's changes made to the Pillsbury Building as the historically significant period, so the metal spandrels will never be coming back. Gross.

The current all-glass windows on the Pillsbury Building are actually later than the significant period. Here's a picture from 1963 when the complex opened (note the spandrels):

Is it really that hard to make a PDF rather than print and scan the same document 20 times?

The federal government needs some serious document management reform because holy crap that's awful.

Hennepin County Government Center's fountain and pool are closed for repair until September. They currently have fencing around it while they work. As much as I like the fountain, I really wish there was a large-scale sculpture in this plaza (either in place of or in addition to the fountain).

This is literally the worst thing ever for a large share of Star Tribune commenters. What a waste of $3.5 million! That money could be used to rebuild a critical interchange, or add a lane to the beltway, or something.

If they just got rid of the comments section of the star tribune the world would automatically be a 5% better place

If you want to ruin a good day, or make a bad day worse, read the Strib comments section. Works every time!
