Reminds me of the giant cement grain elevator next to surly, seems pretty cool.

These 1970s foam covered bubbles are not that interesting and in poor shape. The 'Port of Minneapolis' was a 1960s boondoggle that deserves to be stricken from the record.

Yes let's erase history that sounds like a good idea.

I have no emotional attachment to this terrible/ awful land-use. What's next, preserving the asphalt plant to the south?

Asphalt is the 'terrazzo" of 70's.

i wish they planned to preserve even more of the industrial stuff but this still looks great. repurposing industrial areas works incredibly well for music venues. see ferropolis, NDSM, half of Berlin.

The Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA should really be the precedent for this project! They did a really good job of letting the public get up close and personal with it. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Levit ... 75.3680992

I'm trying to figure out how the people on the lawn section behind the suite tower building are going to see the stage. Presumably there is going to be some pitch to the lawn and the building doesn't appear to have a 40' high gap in it more like 20'-25'. I have a hard time figuring how the people at the middle to back of the lawn aren't just going to be looking right at the backside of the building. I also don't see any big screens in the rendering but that's something they could add easily.

I'm wondering the same thing. Doesn't seem like you can see the stage from the lawn. However, there are two giant screens on the back of the structure (one on each side) in the rendering. So that looks like it's part of the plan. The structure seems to unnecessarily cut the space in half.

If you look closely at the rendering, the first balcony that spans across the lawn doesn't happen until the third level (there's a balcony along the side at the second level). So I think the sightlines would probably be fine -- it would be comparable to sitting under the balcony at a theater.
