The lobby is cool! I swung in there last week trying to find the Spyhouse that was very prominently advertised on the front, which wasn't open yet, and I was impressed by the space.

Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

IMO post them in any thread that is relevant to the subjects in the photo.

However there is a dedicated Photography forum if you have any that don’t seem to fit. You could make a thread there for your miscellaneous photos.

That is a spectacular vista though. It will vanish when the other half of the block gets developed.

What is the plan for those power lines? Cant believe we still have some above ground that close to downtown.

A number of North Loop streets, including Third, the one in the photo, are being reconstructed this year. I don't know if this will involve burying the power lines.

I was driving through here today and thought to myself, "Thank goodness their reconstructing these soon."

What are the chances they tear up all of those nice trees and replace them?

It's a little bittersweet how few good vistas will remain of the City Hall clocktower (once the city's tallest building) in a few years. There used to be a great one along Park Ave that was blocked by the Portland Tower. When it was built there were great view corridors for the tower in multiple directions (along 4th/Riverside, Park, etc.) that have all vanished with more construction downtown.

Although, I wonder if this one existed before the Metropolitan Building was demolished? I think the Met would have been just to the left of the clocktower from this view, but I'm not certain.

That deal never materialized.

New proposal:
Downtown's Rockler Fur building could become housing option for Native community

That’s awesome about the building being converted to affordable apartments. We can always use more of those.

Unrelated question: what’s the latest on the property located just south of 10th St. and west of Hennepin Avenue? I thought they were going to be putting in two hotels there. Haven’t heard anything in a long time about the project though.

I've heard that JR Hospitality and Hawkeye Hotels plan to break ground on at least one of the hotels this summer.

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.
I ran into this NRHP filing through a different link, https://www.nps.gov/nr/feature/places/pdfs/16000441.pdf

It really seems odd to have a place designated where the narrative talks about how much of downtown was destroyed via urban renewal and how this exemplifies that period.

Does anyone know what the double-level bridge-looking thing is on Marquette on p 39 of that pdf?

Got off the Northstar this morning and it looked like there was a boring crew on the 408 4th Ave N Hines lot. They were in the corner close to the station and the bike trail. Probably nothing, but I know Hines once had a nice rendering for this site..

That was the concept I had heard from some in the community. Not trying to stir anything up, just that's what I was told.
