Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

There's an eye clinic on the top of Medical Arts that has a really cool space. The main doc there has a fireplace in his office/exam room.

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

I'm curious to see what, if anything, happens with the Pentagon Park properties in the next 5 - 10 years. We've now had 2 different companies fail at getting anything out of the ground. We had a pseudo proposal for Allina that seems to be dying on the vine. We've had 3 master plans in the last 5 yea...

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

I wish everyone complaining was just honest and said "I wanted the Duval building and will accept nothing less than a supertall" because a lot of the griping doesn't make sense except in that context. That's the thing, I don't think that the Duval would have been good on this site; somewhere else i...

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

In my case I'm griping because they only have 18 condos in this thing. It's laughable! Why even bother? Any other development that you have seen with a Four Seasons has a SIGNIFICANTLY larger housing component, this just seems like a joke. UP - Underwhelming Properties.

Re: Southside - General Topics

They also have a site in Eagan as well, off 55 just east of 35E. I think that site is close to 100,000 sq. ft.

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

The way it's set up now makes most sense. You'd want the hotel portion closest to HCMC and the housing portion on the opposite end for a little noise buffer.

Hard to believe someone got paid to put this together. A complete lack of vision (and probably eyesight).

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The offices in the Dayton's building were miserable. As you said, not a lot of windows, but they were also borken up really poorly, low ceilings, really dated furniture and carpet, and poor quality at that. Gutting it an starting over will help some, but will need some creativity to make it appealing.

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

That's really interesting. I was basing my information on meetings way back when Hiawatha was just being built; several of our city and regional leaders had gone to Portland and possibly Denver to study regional transportation. One of the highlights that they were touting was streetcars -vs- LRT and...

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

I think the fact that they didn't lay down tracks seals the faith that it's not going to happen in the next 10 years. When it comes time for them to actually seriously think about the project they are going to say, "Nicolette [sic] [sic] [sic] [sic] Avenue was just replaced, we be wasting taxpayers...

Re: St. Anthony Village

I live just a couple of blocks away from this. The people displaced by this are still reeling and have had to rely on a lot of donations, help with finding housing, even trying to find higher paying jobs to support new housing. Luckily this is a fairly generous neighborhood. I never thought the trai...

Re: Minneapolis Armory

I'd go just because they're non union. In my experience you get less service at a higher cost using the union, but you also get the bonus of dealing with a bunch of attitiudes to boot. An organization that outright roots for someone to fail and obstructs business if they don't use their services is ...

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

With the setbacks and vertical look to the building it doesn't have a hulking 15 story look to it. I think it would be a nice addition to the area. It's less bulky and imposing than the 7 story building next to L&B across the street.

Fresh Thyme is right there, there's an Advertising firm across the street as well as Aveda a couple of blocks away. There could be some desire from a business perspective. The hotel is only listed a 50 units. They won't have any walk-up business, but depending on how well they advertise at the U and...
