More than I would have expected for a simple parking lot repaving. Are they burying tanks? Would love to have a Costco Gas station close by. ...

Re: 420 E Hennepin Ave

They are dismantling the billboard on top of the current building at this site today. Seems like demolition may be imminent.

Re: 200 Central (2019) - 293' / 27 Stories

Pretty sure this isn't hydroseed....other materials dropped off and a line of cars and trucks parked on the newly fenced off site. The grass that was growing wasn't beautiful but was sufficient to stop erosion.

Something's going on at the site. Dirt and gravel have been spread over the lot. Is construction imminent?

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

ten year lease is up and probably didn't generate enough revenue to resign.
Has it been TEN years already!?!? Wow.
It hasn't been 10 years. I've lived in the area for just over 9 and remember it being Panera Bread Company in there for at least a couple of years before New Bohemia.

Re: Rafter - 333 Hennepin Ave E (290' - 26 stories)

The white portions of the building look a bit dirty to me already....I'm wondering how the surfaces will age over time. It's not horrible looking, but nowhere near as attractive as the Nord Haus tower. I've nicknamed it the "Tetris Tower."

http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/news/2016/03/17/costco-northeast-minneapolis-store.html Apparently CostCo bought a warehouse at 3311 Broadway St. NE on Sept 1st. Say it could fit a CostCo store, which would honestly be great if they could re-use an older industrial building instead of buildin...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

I asked a WC employee today...the most recent they have heard is July. I assume they’ll tear the old Holiday down first and remove gas tanks, etc. Does the new White Castle overlap the old one? Or will they be able to build the new restaurant first then close and remove the old one afterwards? Sent...

Re: White Castle and Holiday at Central & Hennepin

Stopped today for gas. I live close by but always avoided the old station. I’ll be back here! Let’s move ahead and get the new restaurant built! Not a huge WC fan, but will be nice to have this all done!

Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

Don't people have shades on their windows? Shades, yes, but they aren't solid blackout shades. More of a black mesh that allows views outside when closed on a sunny day. Also allows the blue/white lights from NordHaus into my bedroom at night. The billboard at 4th and Central can be annoying too if...

Some friends that live in the Cobalt building were complaining about the lights, I gave them an "ahhh ummm yeahhh sucks..." while thinking in my head, Looks great! I live in the Cobalt (but don't think I'm your friend)....I'm not overjoyed with the lights. I agree they look nice as a building featu...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

I'm pretty sure that they took about 4-5 swipes at the building to "start demolition" but have done nothing since. Just a statement to say they won and are moving forward. That was exactly my feeling. Now no one can claim the building needs to be saved. In fact, they may be ordered to completely de...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

I also drove by the Costco site on Broadway this past weekend and saw the beginnings of work. Glad to see from the permit that it appears to actually be Costco getting the building ready. Not sure what selection the "Business Center" will have, but it will still be great to have access to some thing...

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

There's is a proposed redevelopment of the Holiday/White Castle in the upcoming Marcy-Holmes land use committee agenda. This is the one right at the crossroads of Hennepin and Central. The person listed to talk about the "redevelopment" is a representative from Holiday, so don't get your hopes up. ...

Do you have to sign up before you get to see what channels you get and get details about the service? Website won't let me do anything but sign up for my "free" trial. https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/07v6EVzkK4uzby8Y2OIU3DKdOzo=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file...

St Anthony Main theater is close to downtown and can be walked from the light rail or just a quick bus connection across the river. Smaller theaters but usually showing the major new releases.
