Allianz Field tweeted out a map of the area around Allianz this morning to help volunteers find parking. It's worth noting the parcel at the corner of University and Snelling is listed as development in progress. I don't remember seeing anything proposed for that lot yet it's good news if the graphic up to date though.

Also when driving past Allianz last night there was a M Health sign above the NW gate

I’m not 100 percent, but I’m pretty sure that space has always been fenced off and not used as a parking lot.

I noticed fencing went up around what's left of the strip mall, are they going to tear it down (I know it was damaged during the riots)? Same with the liquor store in the old Perkins? or is it to keep people out while St. Paul fire/ATF investigate?

The buildings burned out will definitely be demolished. There's no way they can be renovated. Will they be rebuilt the same as before? Also definitely not. These sites, for better or worse are now the prime locations for redevelopment in the Twin Cities.

So we may be taking a step backwards in terms of the quality of development we are seeing in the area surrounding Allianz Field. Taco Bell franchisee Border Foods is making a third attempt to rebuild their Snelling Ave. location after twice being rejected by the city. This time, they are going with a COVID-19 justification with a good dose of post-riot recovery (with essentially the same plan that was turned down in 2015). All because Zantigo put in a drive thru some 40 years ago with questionable permits, they feel they should have a perpetual right to a drive-thru that provides maximum vehicle "stacking"... because they just care so much about the neighborhood and keeping people safe.

Obviously different markets and all that, but here’s what they’re building around the new Washington DC soccer stadium.

Occupied stores are always better than vacant stores, but it's a little disappointing to lock in that three acre parking lot and 750' of blank street frontage for several more years.

I'd think a furniture store would need a fair bit less parking than a Walmart of the same size, so maybe there's still some potential for redeveloping part of the parking lot.

That all depends on how their lease was written.

There is so much space to develop in this area. It’s probably best to focus on filling in University-Snelling and the former Midway Shopping Center strip mall first anyway.

The two new apartment buildings on Snelling across from the stadium are a huge improvement.

That makes sense. One superblock at a time.
