Re: Grand & Lake - 318 W Lake St (G&L Furniture site)

Furniture store looks to have moved out recently. This one seems to be moving along faster than some of the others nearby that were proposed around the same time.

Re: 2924 Bryant Ave S, 86 units

Looks pretty decent. Each Yellow Tree building seems to be a little bit bigger than their previous one. I wonder how long before they're doing towers downtown?

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

I think the live/work alley is pretty interesting, certainly unique. I'm happy to see a developer trying something new.

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 18-20 stories

I like it! I wish the glass portion had more rounded corners (maybe it would look weird, idk) since I'm just sick of everything being so square in this part of town, but am totally fine if it's built as is. The retail spaces seem LARGE. I wonder if they have something in mind, because I really can't...

Re: 501 7th St S

This thing is giving me serious uncanny valley vibes. It's like a parking garage is trying its hardest to be an apartment building, but just can't quite get over the hump.

Re: Leef Block - 221 Irving Ave N

This is pretty well underway. There's a number of other projects in the neighborhood that seem to be going on too. Nice to see this area get worked on a little.

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

The entire vacant block between the Doubletree and the new medical building is fenced off with heavy equipment onsite cutting down trees. Anyone know what's going here?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Heard that the National MS Society is moving out of their building soon over by Gold Medal Park because "it's going to be torn down and turned into more apartments." That's really all I know, but it's a nice location, so hopefully something cool goes in.

Re: The Central - 3501 Second Ave. S

I just want to offer some kudos to Yellow Tree for figuring out how to not rip up every mature tree that may even slightly inconvenience the construction process. I noticed that they managed to do the same thing at the Whitt as well. Not every developer in town seems to feel this need.

Re: 1410 Loring - 1400 Nicollet Ave. (Market BBQ redevelopment)

Good to see some positive changes. If they could switch up the sea of white siding a little, I think I'll end up liking this one a lot.

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

The buildings are both fine and I look forward to seeing them built, but that driveway in the middle is HUGE. You could fit a whole 4th building in there! Seems like a crazy waste of space. Do they really need it to cut all the way through the block?

Re: Minneapolis Armory

Has anyone seen plans for landscaping? I hope they are just waiting for winter to be over and not just leave it as is.
For those who haven't been by recently, the current landscaping is an ocean of wood chips. It looks really bad and I hope it isn't their long-term plan.

Re: Southside - General Topics

In preparation to add 1,250 employees to their Home Mortgage campus, Wells Fargo is proposing to significantly expand their parking structure.

Planning Commission PDF here.
Wells Fargo's not really wasting much time. This looks like they've started going at it with gusto.

Re: Prospect Park - General Topics

With all the excitement of the grocery store opening today I should mention that plans for a 2nd grocery store on Malcolm just north of the transit-way continue to move forward. The most recent plans I have seen show a 2 level grocery store/restaurant at the base of a 12 story apartment tower with ...

I am all about this project. Apartments, condos, small retail, offices, historic rehab, a building with CURVES(!!!). I like it a lot.

Re: Market Bar-B-Que Apartment project - 1400 Nicollet

I like the LaSalle side as well, and the orange siding is totally fine by me, but the huge expanses of white panels are pretty disappointing. However, I like that the retail spaces look to be smaller. I hope they fill in quickly and we don't have a case of a landlord holding out for 3 years for the ...

Something fairly large looking going up on the SE corner of 394 and Hopkins Crossroad. I don't recall hearing much about this. Apartments? Syngenta expansion?

The parking garage on 10th ave is really going up quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if it's open by late spring or early summer. Turns out, when a building is mostly just pre-cast cement or whatever, it doesn't actually take very long to assemble...
