Re: Calhoun Towers - 3430 List Place (295' - 24 stories)

This appeared to be very much under construction last week. Lots of major excavation right up against the existing tower.

Re: 420 E Hennepin Ave

There are jersey barriers up onsite and traffic lanes have been reconfigured with paint included, so guessing we are going to see construction immediately following demo. Utility contractors and equipment onsite as well now.

Re: 420 E Hennepin Ave

Lanes of traffic were blocked off this morning on both Hennepin and Central adjacent to the property.

I will miss the Central facade of the building and the angled alleyway. It played well off its neighbors.

Re: 420 E Hennepin Ave

Parking lot on site is closed off. Really hope we're not getting a demo with no project afterward now.

Workers were pulling furniture and finishings out of the existing building on site last week.

Re: Alden Smith Renovation and Apartment Project

Work on this has begun. Looks like renovations on existing structure at the moment. No demolition or excavation so far.

Re: Malcolm Yards Phase One (food hall, apartment buildings, grocery store)

The walls were brought down to roughly the point they're currently at a number of months ago. Guessing some of the material at the top damaged by fire was just too far gone to safely leave in place.

In other area news, the distillery next to Surly has been under construction for a few weeks now.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Bachelor Farmer must have been going under before all this. Their family is worth almost $2B. They could have saved it if they wanted to.

Still a shame.

The houses in question are all in a very small stretch, between 27th and Lake. Could still fully close the rest.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Why is West River Parkway open to vehicles at all? It doesn't provide access to anything that other roads don't. Just close it all.
