Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

I ran by the Fed's parking lot the other day. It looks like they're installing a security fence around the perimeter of the parking lot. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk Maybe they are just preparing for the upcoming inauguration. We really don't know where these terrorists will strike next.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Yea I used to own a house across 31st St from the church for 15 years. Always loved the building and it's historical significant architecture to Minneapolis. Wouldn't believe that it would be torn down. So I did read up a little on the building being converted to an apartment building. Approved for ...

Re: Southside - General Topics

So a friend of mine told me they were tearing Joyce Methodist Church down and putting up apartments. I'm kind of surprised, because last I heard they were turning the church into apartments. I can't find anything about it being torn down and replaced. Then again this person who told me is often livi...

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Those round things in the river lock system generally don't look round from most angles. I'd like to see them painted in various colors, put masts and sails on them, light them up at night, perhaps even synchronize them for various things like the 4th of July fireworks. Something to jazz up the rive...

Re: 1301 W Lake St - LOCAL Ventures - 14 stories / 160'

A nice update on the Girard/Lake/Fremont proposal. Still a work in progress but I see the LOCAL is working with the neighborhood. A 2 tower proposal is a possibility but currently it looks like they lopped off 10 stories on the Fremont side of the project. Plans for tall Uptown apartment tower scale...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

I am surprised that Dallas/Ft Worth have only hosted once. Currently I think our stadium, Atlanta's new one are the 2 best stadiums in the country. The new Chargers stadium in LA will be the best though when finished. Just beautiful. Vegas has got to be the ugliest of the newest built. If you put a ...

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Interesting you can see the rainbow lights reflected in the river from the bridge and then looking a bit more closely you can see the bridge is lit up for Pride as well. Barely noticeable especially considering it's not the subject of the story. Now if only Twelve and Fourteen would be announced and...

Re: Calhoun Square

Make it multi-generational. Arcade for teens, reading and internet place for seniors with tea and coffee. Throw in kiosks that have different businesses in them. Their use is won by lottery that you pay for. Put in a food court with either international food or a bunch of American fast food, since M...

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

I may be misunderstanding you, but spending 30% of your income on housing is a pretty standard metric of affordability. and on top of that if you worked fairly close..or maybe even not so close with public transportation, would you even need a car. I remember owning my house near 31st/Emerson Ave S...

Re: RBC Gateway (Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 519'

Did pelli make the library kind of look like the dolphin staffing building?
I can definitely see why you think so. They do have a lot of similarities from a distance. Now if only the library had gotten it's planned planetarium.

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

Maybe one of those mini Cub Foods stores. The one in south Minneapolis is so cool. It would cater more to the neighborhood what with the density here and really wouldn't require parking.

Crave restaurant is great. I've been to the one in Woodbury twice now, one being this past Sunday before going to the Heart concert. The food, atmosphere, staff, all are exceptional.

All the penthouses on the top 2 living floors are less than 1000 sf. I guess it's the view you'll be paying for. Over all I"m happy with this tower.. It offers a lot. I hope the retail areas work out well.

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

It's amazing how much more traffic there is on Hwy 52 then there was when I was growing up. Back in the early 70's my friends and I would ride our bikes along 52 from Zumbrota to Pine Island to go swimming in their pool. Zumbrota got one around 74 or 75. The other highlight for the trip was that my ...
