Re: 17 North Washington - CA - 27 stories - ~300'(?)

Back when I was at the U of M...Judith Martin (may she rest in peace), used to say that the Gateway Renewal Project was great for the city's image, and kept us looking progressive. Not that she didn't bemoan the loss of urban fabric, but I recall her arguing that the city may not have done as well o...

FINALLY, that little empty lot is filled. There hasn't been anything new on that side of LaSalle in decades....its refreshing!

Re: The Larking - 800 Park - 17 stories - 172'

They always do that! Show glass in the rendering, and then switch to metal. The most recent one where I think it made the biggest difference (in a bad way) was 365 Nic.

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Well they can't be "100% sold" before they are built. It is probably deposits...I am not even sure if they can have complete purchase agreements before the units are built. I am a Realtor, but I have never done new construction condos. I just know they can't be sold before they exist:)

Re: LynLake Municipal Lot Redevelopment

There does need to be some sort of parking option, I think, for a venue like Jungle theater...but I think the 2 apartment buildings on the block across Lyndale have a fair amount of public parking? The one on Aldrich, and the newer one just south of the greenway. As long as they do, I think it is ok...

Re: Uptown (and LynLake) Development & General Topics

The Sephora is doing very poorly...at least so far. I don't think they have said they are going to try to get out of the lease or anything yet, but wouldn't be surprised. That is the gossip from corporate. Unrelated...apparently the new Times Square store is doing badly as well, but at least it is a...

I could have sworn I already asked this, but I guess I didn't. Did we ever see final drawings for this? Isn't the floor count and height up from the original packet a few pages back?

Re: Alia Tower - 200 Central - 483' / 40 Stories

This would be less disappointing if they hadn’t rushed to clear the pleasant almost historic building from the site only for it to sit empty. We have seen this too many times.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Random interjection....my bf works at Sephora corporate, and apparently that new-ish uptown store is doing very badly. I’m surprised H&M is still there. I just don’t know what kind of retail works over there...urban outfitters has been there forever, wonder how they are doing. Certain chains seem to...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

I was trying to think what could be done to clean up the space...and the only sort of thing I can think of is filling the area under the sculpture with something like a food vendor. Maybe a stationary tiny space to rotate different food truck vendors through? Not sure what else would work. Filling i...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

And it continues to be a sad and disappointing state of affairs with regard to retail in uptown and downtown. How can we keep adding all of these residents, but we can't seem to support retail? I am not there to see, but Henn and Lake must be looking pretty sad....that is a lot of vacancies within o...
