Re: Target Center Renovation

The guys who moved the Sonics from a large and prosperous metro area to a much less affluent and smaller market, who subsequently lucked into a GM who was brilliant in the draft. Then they couldn't pay the players they drafted because they were in too small of a market. One of the Thunder owners end...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

In regards to Wells Fargo, pre COVID my wife had to negotiate in order to work from home. Her team is dispersed around the country, she would have been the only one in Minneapolis, but they still wanted her to come into an office everyday. She got lucky because she had the fully WFH setup while most...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

I agree. It seems like that the walls of bullshit built up the MPD over the decades to defend egregious actions of its staff are going to fall. End the Stanek rule. Renegotiation of the police union contract that will have broad public and institutional support. Only the most hardcore reactionaries ...

It took 18 years for passenger levels to get back to pre-9/11. This may be longer than that.

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Transportation is the largest proportion of co2 émissions in the US. By my estimates 5 times greater than concrete and steel production. Concrete production releases significant co2, but only wood releases less, due to the very low embodied energy of concrete. More inventive use of timber the better...

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

They really need to find a way to have a some soft of vendors. It would like a 30 minute walk for any kind of refreshments. Seems like every good pier runs utilities out the furthest point for shoppes and restrooms.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

It's kind of wild that the CB2 and LA Fitness corners are entirely new parts of the complex (replacing old buildings) within the past decade. And they don't include a vertical housing or hotel or even office component. In the case of CB2, I seem to recall the previous building had multiple storefro...

Across the northern city limit of Milwaukee there are literal farm fields. So yeah it’s much more suburban than Minneapolis.
