Could someone paste a link to the city of Minneapolis planning commission documents for the new office building? I can’t seem to find them.

I had a dream this grew to 20 stories last night and became very BIG (Bjarke-Ingels) like. Very clear boxy.

Just for fun. No new info added.

So this is only gotten as far as the committee of the whole, correct? There might still be some design changes.

SO they can bring the Metrodome down with a controlled blast but not a parking ramp??

Are there just 2 guys paid by the hour taking it down a little piece at a time?

Has anybody figured out what the future potential graphic is in this?

Is it suggesting that the offices could be expanded on top of the ramp next door? Or that it's for private development?

It just has that with no real explanation.

I know the Fleet Farm ramp was designed to have office/residential added on top, but I can’t imagine this ramp was however many years ago it was built. Adding the liners for the elevators would be such an exorbitant cost that it would make more sense just to tear it down and start with something new.

As of this morning the concrete is all down. They have now moved onto slowly cutting down the metal segments and stairwells with a welding torch.

The crane is up for this. Someone should count all the cranes in the East Town neighborhood. Four or so with Thrivent and at least 3 more scattered.

Sadly, a worker fell this afternoon here. I went for a walk and 6th was closed with a firetruck trying to access the victim. Prayers.

They were using a firetruck to lift him out of the pit, he was alert and moving but his lower body was immobilized. Hopefully it's something relatively minor, not a spinal injury.

Oooh I saw so many police cars blocking 3rd Av and 6th St and was wondering what happened. Healing to this worker.

It looks like there's a CMU wall going in on some of the 5th St frontage of the parking ramp immediately behnid the new city building. Anyone know what that's about?
