Why is the city rushing the RFP for the Public Service Building now? Didn't they put one out a bit ago and got crummy responses? Do they need the $$ because of the new building?

They're not. The city is taking a different approach (because of the previous failed effort you mention) and is issuing an RFQ, not an RFP. Sounds like they are hoping for a better result if they get a developer on board first and can then work towards a final package, which would start opening as the city and the country are well into a recovery.

We'll see if it works, but it's smart to try a different tack.

Anyone know what is happening on the 10th and Hennepin site? Have a buddy that works downtown message me today asking what is going in there. I wasn't aware of anything.

Are you sure it wasn't 10th and Hawthorne? They are building a new hotel.

That is what I originally thought, and he may have been confused. I know that is the dual brand hotel. Was hoping something was finally happening at 10th and Hennepin.
