Side Chicks is also taking over the old Blue Door Pub space near LynLake. So far there is only a preliminary biz application available on Minneapolis Property Info. Personally, I'm maybe a little too excited for the fried chicken options ahead!

Mix of 1 bedroom (13) & studios (33), all presented in an unpleasant grey palate like its neighbor to the east.

It's interesting that this one took a while to surface? It was submitted to the city on September 30th, 2020 and I noticed the submission entry way back then. I guess they were revising the design further.

Either way, this is a replacement for the older apartment buildings that were unfortunately damaged by the Theater Garage building construction. Glad to see the replacement is moving forward. It looks fine, totally normal.

I was wondering why we had not heard anything about this. How many units is it replacing from the damaged building

Looks like they've increased the setback along Aldrich to match the adjacent building -- I'm pretty sure the previous building came up much tighter to the property line.

I thought we decided that the cracks in the building pre-dated the Theater Garage construction?

I thought so as well but I also think they were told they needed to rebuild the units.
Based on me eyeing it up on google maps the old building was pretty tight towards the road.

You may be right, I just remember it being an associated issue, regardless of the true cause.

On the edge of my seat waiting for someone to admit in a couple weeks that it's just that their lease was up for renewal and the rent was going further up than they were willing to accept.

With all the closings of the past year is there any actual evidence that retail rent pressure is still to the upside in the area?

I happened to drive through Uptown today and it really is barren. Corner door to Calhoun Square is boarded up (under construction?), and most of the Hennepin storefronts between Lake and Lagoon are empty. It's not great.

A few months back on one of these topics there was the sentiment that the media was unfairly pinning the pandemic impacts on the city and that it’s actually more or less ‘as bad’ all over.

On Saturday I had a buddy visit who lives in Golden Valley and came here directly from a grad party in the far northern burbs. The first comment out of his mouth when he walked in was that downtown freaking Anoka looked lively and as good or better than he ever recalled and that coming down Hennepin, Uptown looked like a dystopian movie set.

Yes, my girlfriend went out in NE with some friends on Saturday. After my buddies comment I asked her and she said that NE was fun and seemed relatively normal.

That whole side of uptown is in pretty bad shape. I biked around downtown this weekend and it was lively. Some empty store fronts but not as bad as uptown. Its pretty clear while rent might be a factor there is alot more going on then just rent and the pandemic. If it was just that why would north loop and NE retail be doing well.
