Re: Downtown Hotel News

If we dont see a solid increase over Q2 and 3 then we have an issue but I think we will.

Re: Downtown Hotel News

I think it would for those but also the Minneapolis hotel market is driven by events in the city which only recently picked up again. People come in for a concert, night out, twins game ect all of which only started in full swing again June first. Even then most major concerts will not start until t...

Re: 21 North Washington - 27 stories - 300'

Sounds like work has begun on the three story portion of this to allow for vehicles to leave 270 while this is under construction

Re: Washington and Portland Mixed Use - 20 stories - 226'

Its really about one company having a vision and one having a plan. Even this project which had some more complicated financing and logistics due to the fire station was able to get off the group without drama. Now were down to one eye sore on Washington ave.

Agreed. Assuming Seven point is run competently vs just "area hype" they should be able to have lower rent prices thus attract/keep tenets far better.

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

I already admitted that was the wrong term to use. Occupation of a city street is a more appropriate term to describe what is going on. And that is causing alot of pain to the area, its residents and its businesses. That being said your description of uptown is very true outside of the one block abo...

I think it will link the two buildings if 315 is built. It just looks very odd right now

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

I mean that people I personally know cant leave there homes due to people having blockaded the streets. Not in the fox news river side way which was used to stir anti immigrant views. I will not sure that if it carries to much stigma based on how some people have used it in the past as a blanket sta...

Well said! It can and imo is both. Rent and crime/unrest together are at play.

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.

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

While some do lie if there business idea fails. But this is not the case. They were successful and have been for 35 years. The cities leaders have more or less left uptown to fend for itself. Lyn Lake is doing fine. While some places have closed ie blue door, muddy waters. There have been new places...

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

Usually these just play to the parties base its hard to read much into them. Sometimes it shows where the party is moving other times it means nothing. Walz didnt get the DFL nomination at the convention and still won over voters. It will be a fight for these seats. My only hope is we have better le...

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

That whole side of uptown is in pretty bad shape. I biked around downtown this weekend and it was lively. Some empty store fronts but not as bad as uptown. Its pretty clear while rent might be a factor there is alot more going on then just rent and the pandemic. If it was just that why would north l...

Re: The Dayton's Project

A big factor will be how many days does a employer push people back into the office. My company has stated they want us all back in person and expect people to go back at the end of summer.
The other will be once a larger portion of the work force is split how will that all work

Re: Blue Line Extension - Bottineau LRT

Well they can go kick rocks.
My view is this. They will complain about it until its built. Then after about 12 months you wont hear about it again because all of there "issues" turned out to be a lot of hot air and people see the value you in it.
