Expo, NordHaus phase 2, and the new building on Central stand out in this shot.

Thanks for the photo postings today, Matt. Were you on the Wells Fargo tower or the Capella? It really is astonishing how much these views have changed already and how much more they will be changing in the next year or two. I was out of the state from 2000 to 2011. There had been modest changes to the skyline in the span, but the changes in the last ten years are beyond imagination. So many parking lots have disappeared or are scheduled to disappear. One could wish for some true architectural gems in all of the more recent changes, but there are some decent looking additions in the lot and some good preservation work as well.

Thanks a lot. I did the big stair climb at Capella. Yeah, it is really fun to compare pictures even from a year or two ago. There is so much new construction and it is actually difficult from some angles to see the ground or an open lot.

I'm curious what is the story of the Xcel Energy land between 31st and St Anthony Blvd and the Mississippi? Is this a dump of some sort with coal ash? I was running past it recently and realized it was a nice chunk of lightly used river property. Looks like Xcel also owns the chunk of land on the north side of St Anthony Parkway across the street. The county has the owner down as Northern States Power. That must still be Xcel's legal name?

NSP was the local electricity provider that merged with several others in 1998 to form Xcel.

Right. Due to all the legal complexities of regulated utilities, NSP still exists as an entity within Xcel that officially does all the regulated utility stuff in Minnesota, and the Dakotas (and NSP-W does the same in Wisconsin and Michigan).

Both of those pieces of land were used for coal unloading and storage until the plant was converted over to natural gas in 2009 - I'm not sure what Xcel's plans for the land are. When they converted the High Bridge plant in St. Paul, the new plant was built on the coal storage yard, so it's not necessarily too polluted to build anything on.

Xcel is the holding company that holds all the subsidiaries, which includes all the old utilities that did the mergers, Northern States Power was one of them. Looks like there are 6 main operating companies under Xcel.

And 23 companies if you include every subsidiary.

Target’s buying huge former-Sears warehouse for a photo studio.

Likely this will replace any current photo studio, right? Where is Target’s current studios?

Thought so. The speculative mind in me wonders if this is to get the Royalston-adjacent property ready for redevelopment with the station coming.

Wouldn't surprise me. It might also be consolidation - when my fiancée and I were getting engagement photos taken, we met the photographer at the building containing Falling Knife Brewing (formerly Northgate Brewing), where she was wrapping up a Target photo shoot in a rented(?) studio.

Did we miss this one? 521 Main St replacing an 1880s duplex with a 29 unit apartment building. https://www.mynortheaster.com/news/apar ... plex-site/

They've requested a variance to place a transformer in the setback- so it's still moving.

Ooh, the blue is fun. We need more brightly colored buildings in Minneapolis.

Shoring and other site work have begun on the new hotel at 2800 University Av SE. Nice to see some more construction activity along this eclectic stretch of University.
