An update from today on the Red Lake Nation project, "Mino-Bimaadiziwin" (2109 Cedar Ave S). This is looking northwest toward downtown.

Re: Hiawatha-Lake - Minnehaha - Downtown Longfellow

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see a dedicated thread for "Midtown Corner," the apartment building the went up in flames earlier this summer (2913 26th Ave S). Wellington cleared the site and is moving quickly on reconstructing the building.

Re: 2510 Riverside Avenue Apartments - 80 units / 6 stories

Project is called "Luna." They are advertising being open for September. https://lunaminneapolis.com/ I'm interested to see if this spurs other apartment projects in Cedar-Riverside or Seward. Those neighborhoods have basically been ignored during the recent building boom. https://i.imgur.com/Z2GnUV...

And some (most?) Cub stores are unionized. The Hi-Lake Cub is a union shop.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that the site next to Sawatdee is part of Zygi Wilf's real estate holdings, and that would explain the New Jersey connection.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Nordeast, I wasn't meaning to be dismissive of ALL people who worry about home values. You're right, many people are really counting on the value of their homes for their financial security. And I confess, I definitely lack empathy for some of the folks in Linden Hills, who live in one of the most d...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

It's also kind of funny to me because a lot of these Linden Hills folks also cry the loudest about property tax assessments and how much their homes are worth. It sounds like they're all convinced that frey-plexes will hurt property values, so that should actually be great news for them! [wink]

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

And for some of the complainers who are older and have lived in Linden Hills (for example) for a long time, the four plex proposal might actually allow them to sell their out-dated house for MORE money than they could currently, since a developer could turn it into four high-end condos instead of ju...

Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

I think that small brick building is condos. Might have just been too much effort to buy out each owner.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I hope it's an isolated thing. I really don't think it's appropriate for neighborhood groups to be amplifying the voices of the homeowners who make up those boards and who undoubtedly are already submitting individual comments. I was just curious if there was a movement afoot in other 'hoods.

Re: Smaller Scale Multi-Family Infill

Even if this gets watered down to just duplexes or triplexes, that would still be significant.
