The City of Minneapolis lists rental license payments every year for the Guerts' properties: http://apps.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/PIApp/RentalHistoryRpt.aspx?pid=3302924410037 http://apps.ci....

Re: Heyday - 2700 Lyndale (new restaurant)

Those buildings are in AWFUL shape, they should just tear them down and build something new I think the bones might be good, I can't see building an new building with their concept. The building can't be any different than the Nightengale that opened in the grocery store space that had the fire up ...

Re: Mayo Expansion Proposal - Rochester

If they are threatening to expand out of state, why couldn't they just expand in Minneapolis? Since it probably has everything they are asking out of Rochester. But I suppose they couldn't siphon more money out of the state if that were the case.

Re: Sherman Apartments/Hotel - (700 Washington Avenue)

Maybe someday, Washington from the West Bank through the North Loop will be a pleasant walk, with...

I guess I don't actually know how expensive it is, but I figure it's not cheap if it's getting stolen all the time. Copper is somewhat expensive, yes, but the thefts have more to do with the relative ease in which to "aquire" and sell it. Rough estimate (local retail prices): One of those panels in...
