Re: Dinky "tower" - McDonalds redevelopment

Good points on density and history of the GrandMarc building - I had no idea it was proposed as taller. Also disappointing to hear. Enclosed courtyards can be done well. I think they fly in Texas and the South because you have pools open year round and landscaping that generally stays green, for som...

Re: Hennepin Avenue Reconstruction (Douglas to Lake St)

Then is says the city plans to return parking to the heart of uptown this spring. Anyone know anything about this? Unlocked...

Re: Elliot Park

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

3+ years later and this finally looks like it's wrapped up. In tandem with its completion northbound Lyndale gained a left turn lane and parking was removed from the west side. If that 6,200 sf corner retail space wasn't going to be hard enough to lease, I think the loss of parking there is going to...

Well underway. Haven't noticed any marketing for completion date, but I would suspect summer 2020. Tons of white Tyvek in Uptown and Lyn-Lake right now, will be interesting to see how these things lease up. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49751039458_11fde4192b_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.co...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Bender said lowering speed limits would also help guide future street renovations, such as lane widths and the timing of stop lights. This statement by Bender packs a huge punch... If this helps usher in 10' lanes and quicker signal cycles, this is much bigger and more impactful than just speeds. A...
