Re: The Link at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

Also the low rise portion that opened a few months ago is apparently not leasing well, like 12 units leased so far. Let's hope that picks up when it's finished. I think some of these projects that are near-ish to the U might have problems like this for a while. With the projects over here, even tho...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Sounds like a new project was unveiled to the neighborhood last night:

Something up with Heyday? It's been closed the last two nights when I've passed by, but nothing noted on their website.

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

The siding on this is a little odd looking close up, but from a distance it looks really cool. Seems to shimmer, sort of - a lot like the wind wall at Target Field.

Any word on what's going on at Lyndale and 28th, behind the Subway? Seems like a very substantial renovation.

Re: Doran/General Mills Development - 215 2nd St SE (284' - 26 Stories)

I haven't figured out how I feel about the tower yet. Some of the balconies look a little...precarious? Diving board-y? I like the mid-rise portion a lot, however. It looks like some real high-quality stuff.

Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

I like it quite a bit, and with a few changes I'd even be prepared to like it a lot. I'd love to see maybe just one or two more floors on the Lake St building, just to give it a little more prominence compared to the buildings around it. Also, I like the lighthouse looking building, but would love t...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Seems kind of strange to buy out an operating restaurant when the former Scena space right next door is wide open... The current Coup d'Etat owners are part owners in the company running Pourhouse. I'm guessing they don't own the old Scena spot, which is why they opted to close Coup and transform i...

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

Did the 'For Lease' sign on Lime finally come down?? It would be great to get something in that large space after all this time.

Was pretty surprised to see them actively working on this at 10pm tonight. The crane was hauling up a big chunk of the siding as I drove by.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I was really surprised by the size of the construction site over by Hmong College Prep Academy on Snelling. It's huge!

I looked it up and it looks like they have some pretty big plans:

Re: Ironclad Apartments & Moxy Hotel - Washington & Chicago

There's a temporary chain link construction fence around this lot now...not sure that's new?
Also saw a backhoe in the lot this weekend. Maybe digging will start soon?
