Re: Downtown Hotel News

I don't have any numbers but I can tell you that both the Hyatt Place and the Normandy have both been significantly busier the past couple weeks.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis - News & General Topics

They can tear it down when they have a plan for a building to replace it
Agreed. This will the the only surface lot in 7th Street between 5th Ave S and 5th Ave N.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis - News & General Topics

Does anyone have access to this article and able to provide details:

I don't like the idea of a surface lot even if it is temporary.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

A friend that works at a fancy downtown restaurant says while the sheer numbers of people aren't back yet, the big spenders are going wild and spending much more than usual. Spoke with Lisa Goodman and the city is definitely working on ways of getting people back downtown, but one things she mentio...

Re: Thrivent HQ & Sherman apartments - 500 7th St S

Excited to see this go up. What is going on across Portland? Staging or new construction? That has just been storage for plywood and barriers for the trial. Right now I don't think there are any plans for that lot, but it hasn't been used for parking for a while. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapat...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Ooh, fun. 8,000 sq feet must be one of the street level corners - wonder if it's the old Prime 6 spot, or on Nicollet? From City Centers leasing site, looks like it will be on 6th Street next to the tower entrance. Sounds like the sports bar is a separate tenant (which is great news for City Center...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I work with several small and mid size companies that have offices downtown, and many of them are going to start having their employees come back to the office part time in May. Specifically one of my larger clients wants employees downtown 3 days a week in May, and 4 days a week by the end of summe...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Star Tribune had an article talking about how most downtown business are planning on starting to remove the boarded up windows starting next week. They interviewed the owners of City Center, and they said they are leaving the boards up at 7th and Nicollet as they prepare the space for a new tenant. ...

The Pizza Hut at 11th and Hennepin has re-opened. Not sure why they closed in the first place, maybe they reconfigured there space.

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Seems that Bassett Creek runs through the property underground through here. I don’t expect this to daylight the creek, but I hope it is on the list of future possibilities. The feasibility study on daylighting creeks in Hennepin even rated this stretch right through here as doable. Maybe that’s th...

Re: Old Spaghetti Factory to Pinstripes

Does anyone know if Pinstripes is still happening? Their press release said opening Spring of 2021, but walked by there the other day and it didn't look like anything was happening.

Would be disappointing if Old Spaghetti Factory closed for nothing.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I have reached out to Lisa Goodman about some of my concerns and she has been very responsive and has detailed out things she is personally working on.

I would suggest anyone that has ideas to reach out to her personally.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

How do we know for sure they will keep paying the lease? Maybe they can pay a fee to break it early. Either way, they can afford it. Target owns most of their real estate, City Center was an anomaly. It was also disconnected by a couple of blocks from their other buildings. This is exactly why I am...
