Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

I wonder why they keep making these buildings with structural support for future vertical expansion instead of actually doing the vertical expansion. Wouldn't this have been a good case for vertical expansion above Jacobson?

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

Anyone know how tall this building would have to be? Small plot for 110,000 sf

Re: Duffey 2.0 - 3rd St N

I guess in 50 years we can cut holes in the ramp for windows and make it more housing.
Good observation. It does look like the levels are even with the apartment, and could be easily converted.

Re: Washington and Portland Mixed Use - 20 stories - 226'

Its amazing how Sherman can be so good at executing project after project, and Alatus can suck so bad at it! They both do similar developments, but only one can execute.

Re: Dinky "tower" - McDonalds redevelopment

Wow. Think about paying that kind of money for a site, and then only putting up a 7 story building. Yikes.

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

May be the best proposal for Rochester ever. Even Minneapolis doesn't have anything nearly as bold. Something like this would be phenomenal in the Uptown area. Can you imagine this design and height at the old Arby's site in a triangular shape! So excited for this addition to Rochester. Great looki...

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

That will be a great addition. And will stand out nicely from the south! I also love that it is taking up less than a quarter of the block, leaving plenty of room for the rest to be developed!

They were the Nazi party restaurant, no? Redevelopment is probably a good idea.

Re: 21 North Washington - 27 stories ~300'

Is there a Chipotle with normal hours in that area? Seems like a perfect spot for one of those with the combo of residents/hotel patrons/office workers. I know its not a big space tenant, but would still be good.

Re: 200 Central (2019) - 293' / 27 Stories

I mean, it's literally next door to a big parking ramp. True, but that is a 30 year old parking ramp they don't own and can't control the costs of. What kind of selling point is that? "We have no parking, but there is a parking ramp next door. We cannot tell you how much parking will cost, or that ...

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

To me, the biggest difference between this and the Gateway District being bulldozed is this is one building that is being replaced by a higher density use building. Not just razing it for the sake of razing it.

Does 20 stories imply a rectangle building taking up the entire lot with no setbacks?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Looks like JBC bought the IDS in 2004, remodeled it, and sold it in 2006. So a little experience in this market. They sure do have an impressive portfolio in Chicago.

Re: Rochester

Great looking building. Wish it was down closer to or in downtown. Would really add to the downtown, where as out here it will just stick out like a sore thumb.

Re: 1301 W Lake St - LOCAL Ventures - 14 stories / 160'

How tall is the Mozaic building a block away. I wouldn't thing this would be that much taller. Plus, there are some other lots ripe for redevelopment, and maybe this building would pave the way for other mid rise buildings. That being said, I would welcome them dropping the Fremont side to about 8 s...

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics

They just renovated the field house, and women's track and field is still going strong at this moment. I am sure a lot of high schools also use the field house for meets. Hate to say it, but it isn't going anywhere.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

That is what I originally thought, and he may have been confused. I know that is the dual brand hotel. Was hoping something was finally happening at 10th and Hennepin.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Anyone know what is happening on the 10th and Hennepin site? Have a buddy that works downtown message me today asking what is going in there. I wasn't aware of anything.
