Re: RE: Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

One of the worst and most well-known crimes in MN history happened in the St. Michael area. What crime are you referring to? I grew up in the area and I'm curious about what you mean. I am curious too. I grew up 5 miles from downtown St. Micheal and haven't heard of any horrific crime either. Sent ...

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

Crane is up, though it doesn't look like it is at full height. Wonder if they need to keep it lower due to the HCMC helipad next door.

This is under construction. They have been driving sheet piles all week.

Re: RE: Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

If the alternative given is for a taller building with the same unit count, then I would not be surprised if they determined the unit count based on available parking in the pre-designed full block underground ramp that they put in for the Thrivent building. Currently there is no parking on the vac...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Does anyone know which project just had the tower crane put up this past week a block off the 94 viaduct? From the looks of it, it appears to be for a 8-10 story building.

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

If you look at these files it states it's in the airport safety zone, so not much can be done here.

The billboard on this site has been removed, and it appears they have closed the parking lot.

Re: Wells Fargo Redevelopment - 801 Portland - 18 stories - 279'

Their plan seems to be a bit misleading. The ground floor starts at 100 ft, so I am thinking this will actually be just 179 feet tall.

Not sure why it is labeled like that.

Re: RE: Re: Twin Cities’ museums

Is the public planetarium too crowded since the opening? Has anyone been there? It's not too bad. I would recommend getting your tickets online ahead of time to make sure you get a time slot that works for you, otherwise you may need to wait a couple hours to get in, but that time can easily be kil...

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

I have noticed all 3 of their lots have been closed this week. The full block, the half block by their current building and the quarter block next to the Sexton building.

Re: RE: Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)



Two other things I noticed was that RBC wants a sign at the top of the building facing downtown, I'm pretty sure there is an ordinance against that.
That's the first thing I noticed. I hope the city doesn't allow a variance to the sign ordinance.

Also I had heard rumors about other developers eyeing up the corner of Cleveland and University, not sure if AET purchase of Rihm put a stop to that.
I wouldn't expect anything more than truck storage and maintenance for the former Rihm site.

Re: Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) Clinic Expansion

The funny part is that the new helipad opened, and as soon as the crane went up on the new site, they used the old helipad almost exclusively.

Re: RE: Re: Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) Clinic Expansion

Anyone know when HCMC built a new helipad on the main building near the red entrance, and stopped using the top of their big parking ramp across Park? It was a couple years ago, before construction started on their new building. They use the old helipad occasionally still. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL u...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

Any chance they will be keeping the semi transparent video board on the glass above the main entrance after the Super Bowl? I think it looks pretty sharp.
