I think ( and hope) it may look better when its further along. But this issue of developers always using cheap materials for so many of our newer projects in this city will have a cumulative negative effect on our city's character. It's kind of sad.
I don't think we (Minneapolis) are unique to this trend though.

Nice pics! Looks Like they are covering up the Historic Medallions for safety from the other masonry or whatever. It's exciting to see the exterior going up quickly.

Is anybody else having problems viewing some pics? Is there some setting that I am not aware of that I have to have. If I click on the big white area where the pic should be it will bring me to the flicker site for viewing. That is the only way I can see them. Everything used to just pop up.

Flickr has been known to limit the number of image calls as a referral from another web site. Not something they generally advertise but I have seen it, yes (and do see it here).

So am I right in assuming that the main portion of the further along building (NW) is topped out? The tower portion will be like 5 stories higher than that?

The concrete pump is back up, so I assume they'll be going up more.

I'm not really sure how to reconcile what the renderings seemed to show with what's being built. The elevator core isn't in the tower, so I don't know if it can have any significant usable space that is higher than the main building.

I think that there may be some of the HVAC behind "crown" elements - I only think that there is 3 to 5 floors to build on that right scorner side seen in the video cam link.

Huh. Definitely looks like two levels of elevatorless inhabitable space in the towers. Guess we'll find out.

Could be that they will have shuttle elevators just to access the tower floors. Not the most convenient arrangement, but other office buildings downtown have similar arrangements.

It appears that those tower portions are just to make the building look more visually appealing. Doesn't look like there will be any actual office space. It also doesn't look like it will be big enough to hold much of office space anyways, so to put elevators going up to that area would be pretty pointless.

That's where the gym will be, you gotta go up the stairs to get there.

why in the world are they building a huge blank wall facing 3rd. Is that portion facing the park to be stick built?

Yes, the apartments will be built there.

This rendering from Kare 11 seems to show the elevator superstructure in the middle:

Is it possible that the two additional tower levels are cafeterias or entertainment meeting spaces for employees? They both have spectacular views of the parks and the stadium... just a thought - since they are private buildings they haven't put out a lot of detail about the interiors.
