Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Re: 77th/76th Corridor - Richfield / Edina

Perhaps the rents weren't high enough to cover maintenance? Or at the very least not high enough to cover the extensive maintenance needed after years of neglect. I'm guessing this was an accurate description for the previous owner. They probably had to constantly refinance one of their "money-maki...

Re: MN-121 "Lyndale Connector" Turnback and Redevelopment

The merging of 121 & Lyndale N at 56th is a PITA during rush hour. if they at least figure out how to re-do that, I will be happy.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

The lower bowl (minus the retractable seats) is now completely installed. They still have to form the additional stair steps and add railings/seats, but the shape of the bowl is done. The second jumbotron is starting to get it's panels, as well. The interior will start coming together at a faster pa...

They need to do something to cue traffic. Taking a left from Park Commons to southbound Monterrey is a nightmare sometimes.

Re: 77th/76th Corridor - Richfield / Edina

At least they are not tearing it down to put up more stick construction.

I will be interested to see what the external renovations will look like. That orange-ish looking brick certainly gives it a dated feel.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

I personally can't wait for those people, who purchased a full bedroom set and kitchen table at Ikea, to wheel their 10+ boxes through the Mall to get back to their car they left parked in the Radisson Blue parking ramp. :D

I checked out their prices recently and I don't really see how the location justifies the premium rents they're asking. Nic on fifth and 222 hennepin I get but this seems like it should be more in line with some of the stuff a little further in the north loop. Are they thinking skyway access justif...
