Re: Suburbs - General Topics

This 750,000 sq ft warehouse is for larger items that need special storage, like mattresses, grills, exercise equipment - that can be shipped in a 30-45 min radius. This is not to be confused with the 2 million secretive warehouse that people were speculating Amazon was looking to build in Brooklyn ...

Re: Calhoun Square

I personally think Uptown Square sounds much, much better. You stick with a (familiar) two syllable word before Square, which I think matters when it comes to trying to rename/rebrand something. No one will call this Seven Points - I can't believe this was the best they could come up with.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Corridor Development & MinHi Line

Even has a table/window eating area looking at the LRT station for quick stops-and-goes. But I'd be money that after the first two grab-and-gos, that door gets locked up for security
The NL Holiday corner door is not locked, and used often.

If it was Hyvee, it wouldn't be their first. They have an urban format store in Downtown Des Moines. 18,000 sq. ft. is not very large... for additional context over the Uptown Target. The Highland Park Target is 20k, the Des Moines Hyvee is 38k, the Cub Foods at 46th & Hiawatha is 46k, the Prospect...

Re: Suburban Malls and Associated Retail News

Does JLL have previous history owning malls and redeveloping them like that? From a Google search, it seems they've been picking up a lot of big malls in the past few years, with comments about upgrading/remodeling them to not be "malls", but more community assets. I think that would be a great thi...

Is the southwest metro really so lucrative for Costco that they need to make their 10th store a second one in this corner of the metro? Wouldn't Lino Lakes/Blaine, Plymouth, or Lakeville make far more sense based on where they already have stores? This isn't even 10 miles from the Eden Prairie Cost...

This leaves JCPenney with five stores in the Twin Cities: Burnsville Center, Ridgedale, Rosedale, Maplewood Mall, and Tamarack Village.
