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...

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.

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 23 stories - 256'

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 ...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

I think anyone with a lick of common sense should be able to figure out that something might be built next or nearby that could block their view and hurt their resale value. I had 16 vacant lots to the east of me, with unobstructed views of woods and farmland when I moved in to my house 14 years ago...

i think the closest to that height currently going up is the 13 story project by St. Mary's Hospital. https://finance-commerce.com/2016/08/bo ... y-project/
