I'm excited that Blue Plate is going into that space. They have a concept that seems to work. Their restaurants are all very similar, but each one has a slightly different feature to make it unique for each neighborhood. Also, kudos for them buying a farm to start growing their own food.

Looks like a glass pipe shop is either replacing the former Roe Wolfe space on Washington, or there's still room in that building for another business.

@ericthebest
Lest someone think a glass shop has moved into the former Roe Wolfe space, I hear the sign is just a placeholder

Glass pipe? I've heard of PVC, ABS, copper, cast iron, galvanized steel, and pex. But I've never heard of a plumbing supply store that sells pipes made of glass.

I suspect we're not talking about plumbing pipes here.

Homegrown Glass was in the Roe Wolfe space for years. Are they coming back?

This can't be good news for 700 Nicollet:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/12/busin ... iness&_r=0

Especially this sentence:

"Investors have been pressuring Macy’s to sell some of its real estate as the company has struggled to attract shoppers to its vast footprint of brick-and-mortar stores."

Whatever came of that plan to convert floors 5-11 or whatever into a separate office space?

Did they ever end up selling 700 Nicollet and leasing back the showroom? Or was it just listed for sale?

700 Nicollet is still owned by Macy's according to Hennepin County tax records.

Does it normally take a whole year for such a thing?

I'm guessing it's the whole consolidating a lot of space into one.
From the article: "...including the former Gap and Gap Kids spaces as well as the basement area that once housed a TJ Maxx."

There's appears to be a new Indian restaurant that popped up in the old Taste of Thailand space on 7th just east of Hennepin. It's been there for at least a month or so.

Dug through this thread, and it looks like Sak's Off 5th took about 10 months. So a year for Nordstrom Rack isn't totally unreasonable, especially since they might be intentionally delaying until the Mall construction is totally finished.

Do you know the name of this place?
