Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Per MSPBJ - Hines buys one of the best remaining lots in downtown Minneapolis; floats office project I think they have been softly marketing this for years, but a good sign that they finally closed on the parcel. Business Journal reports that Hines could do 600-700k square feet and is targeting prof...

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

Theatre Garage is gone for good Minneapolis Theatre Garage reflects on the end of an era
Initially, there were talks about including a replacement theater in the new development. Brown was intrigued, but says that plan faced substantial hurdles in financing and organization.

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...

28th & Garfield Apartments

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...

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

I wonder if the horizontal bands/vertical columns are actually stone/tile or just stamped concrete - would hope the former. The building is clad in a stone called Alabama silver shadow. A natural limestone. One of my favorites, actually. It will have natural marble line veining when clean and dry. ...

I like the white metal paneling this and Nordhaus use. Not cheesy neon colors and such a nice break from Mortenson fiber cement panels.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

It's an old building with existing kitchen infrastructure in place. It should be relatively cheap space where a new restauranteur could plug in easily. Hope sooner rather than later.

"Height varies from 6 to 8 stories, following the topography of the site." So basically a 5 over 1. What a disappointment after seeing the 20 story rendering.
