Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

It is a large employer and transit hub. I’m sure they did their due diligence and found it wasn’t worth it.

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

Looking at the website, the 2nd floor is full, 3rd floor has 2 vacancies and 4th floor has 7 vacancies. And as mentioned the 2 large units on 28th Ave are vacant.

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

Huge bummer if true. I wonder if phase 1 isn't filling like they hoped? I see the retail spaces are still empty other than the Lander office.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

There are going to be some changes to the State Fair service this year, mostly due to an operator shortage. This piece from Citylab is a good read about the current state of affairs of the transit operator profession, as an aside: https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2018/06/why-wont-anyone-drive...

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'
