Re: Bemidji

Phase 1 of Lander's 38th Street development is fully leased. Hopefully this bodes well for phase 2.

Re: Southside - General Topics

I miss it too. Does he still have the trailer?

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't mind if Flag Foods got redeveloped. Though I'd rather have it used than sit there empty for years like the SE corner of 28th Ave and 42nd St.

Anyone know what’s going on with Viva Mexico Taqueria on 42nd St? They bought Flag Foods and were going to move back in there but nothing has gone on in there for months.

I guess I must of missed this but in the email I got from Nice Ride today it said that won't have bikes in St Paul this year. What gives?
