Re: Uptown-LynLake-Wedge - News & General Topics

Unfortunately, properties have changed hands at valuations that require an Apple Store or a Victoria's Secret level rent to pencil out. Except Victoria's Secret isn't a high-value renter anymore, which is why it is gone. Which isn't to say that you're wrong, just that the things evolve. Taking it f...

Come see our brand new no go zone.
Weird, I keep trying to and not finding anything. Maybe it's 'cause my time to be able to get there is mornings and weekends?

Re: Uptown-LynLake-Wedge - News & General Topics

On a high level, I think what's considered to be the "cool" area of the city is just changing. The change we're seeing now is Uptown to North Loop. 10 years ago, the North Loop was a fraction of what it is today; Uptown had everything. Retail cycles happen, and Uptown will likely have to change a b...

Re: Uptown-LynLake-Wedge - News & General Topics

Agreed. It does happen where its rent related but with the amount of empty retail on this side of uptown I think its bold to assume it can only be rent related. Given how much better lyndale is doing, I doubt rent is that much cheaper a few blocks down given that both are bustling streets. What els...

Re: Minneapolis 2021 Elections - Mayor, City Council, BET, Park Board

There's going to be a ton of money spent backing conservative candidates. The problem, like last time, is that a new glossy mailer every day doesn't really do all that much to move anyone. Those afraid of change are motivated at the moment. Progressive are going to need to overcome that with organiz...

Re: The Dayton's Project

Which is to say I've been rethinking my faith that people are mostly going to start coming back to the off...

lol. The wetland is located in Edina. The shoreland overlay rules are generally dumb.
I have never even understood the purported premise of height restriction in the shoreland overlay.

Re: Blue Line Extension - Bottineau LRT

To be fair, it's easy for Robbinsdale to see what a catastrophe for people in cars the Blue Line caused along Hiawatha and think a repeat could happen on Bottineau. Maybe the next thing is to do a traffic study.
Huh?

Looks like the Dayton's Project isn't in compliance with the terms of their loan. Their lender is moving to foreclosure because they aren't meeting their agreed upon leasing requirements. https://finance-commerce.com/2021/06/daytons-developer-sues-debt-holder/ Based only on that write up, it seems ...

Re: Uptown-LynLake-Wedge - News & General Topics


Either way, this is a replacement for the older apartment buildings that were unfortunately damaged by the Theater Garage building construction.
I thought we decided that the cracks in the building pre-dated the Theater Garage construction?

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

The last time he made headlines doing this was for telling activists that he wasn't in favor of defunding police. He was booed in person and panned online for this at the time, even though in hindsight this was probably the right position. I can see why he'd be hesitant to wade into anything like t...

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

I think the speedway idea is great! They could build a new building for a historical center on the events of that area. This is more long term planning of the area but still. It's a good idea and the kind of thing the mayor (and others) should have been talking to the activities about. Not that I k...

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

That was mostly in reference to all the young white people I see there. The ones turning away journalists, getting in people's faces, etc.
I'm usually only there briefly, but young and white doesn't describe the majority of the people I've seen there on the many times I've been through.

Cars will be used as terrorism here. Keep the square open to the community. I haven't had a chance to go over there, but from the pictures and videos I've seen, it looks like cars space will be pretty constrained, with the memorial space blocked off by jersey and other concrete barriers, so maybe i...

. Metro Transit buses will return...soon (probably as soon as they can get the word out to riders and take down the detour signs). They are detoured farther north for D Line station construction, so maybe not. Hopefully they can re-add the D Line stations back into the construction contract without...

Re: Seven Points Uptown (Calhoun Square)

So the taller proposed building in this rendering starts at Lake and Girard and crosses over Fremont and goes all the way over to Emerson. I don't think that's gonna fly. Also if Lunds goes in on the ground floor of the southern half of this other proposal, I don't think it would be a wise decision...
