There is a sign on the old Izzy's window that says ice cream is coming soon. So there's that.

Details on the new tenants (if you can navigate through the Pioneer Press website)

Neighborhood pages are overwhelmingly disappointed- appears that no one likes Nelson's. Just happy to have the storefront filled again.

To have it filled in times like this is a win.

The Liffey has broken ground -- I never heard any update(s) but it had previously run into some zoning/setback issues. Very happy this is moving along again! Located at Snelling & Carroll.

From the project site:
Gaughan plans for new multi-family development in downtown St. Paul to add to the revival of the Snelling Corridor.
How far into the exurbs is Gaughan based that they think downtown St Paul includes Snelling?

Edit: Ah, they're in Forest Lake. Checks out.

The terminology my in-laws & parents use (from well outside the metro area):

"Minneapolis" = Twin Cities metro area
"Downtown" = anything within Minneapolis / St Paul city limits

Took a photo of the development at the NW corner of Marshall & Finn last night. Pleased to see this corridor adding a fair number of units.

I drive by here almost every day and have been watching this one go up. What do we know about it? Their website makes all sorts of absurd claims - "just a block from the UST campus", "on a BRT line", "all the fun that Saint Paul has to offer" among others. Looks like it meant to be student housing, which is currently pretty tight.

It's student orientated, yes. I would not say it's a 'fun' neighborhood, but we do like it here. All big 4bdrm units, which I think they are leasing by the room, not unit. Overall it's a good looking project that fits the site nicely.

A whole list of projects:

2063-2069 Marshall Ave., 48 units, 5 stories. Replacing two houses. This one is in preliminary design phase. Looks ok, small commercial on corner.
https://content.govdelivery.com/attachm ... packet.pdf

2150 Grand Ave., 4- 4br units. Replacing a tiny bungalow. Don't know much other than that.
Image

UPDATES:
1509 Marshall Ave., 'The Gradient' 48 units, 5 stories. Got zoning setback approval recently. Expected to break ground this summer.
Image

2097-2115 Marshall Ave., Marshall Lofts/ Flats. 39 units, 3 stories. Replacing 4 houses.
Now expected to break ground in April. Nine townhomes and thirty apartments (I've also heard 50 apartments, who knows?)
https://www.unionparkdc.org/sites/defau ... j_mXhVvCxU

2127 Marshall Ave., 'Marshal at Finn', 10 units (39 bedrooms).
Now looks to be fully framed. I'll shoot some pictures soon. https://marshallatfinn.com/

RUMOR:
1515-1525 Marshall Ave., next door to The Gradient.
All three houses are condemned/ boarded. Rumor of another project going through planning. Zoned T3 so they've got options.

These are all under 50 units! That should get some recognition as being pretty neat. This is the small-site incremental growth we should legalize everywhere.

Edit: to be fair, 2097-2115 Marshall Ave does look ugly.
