Huh. I guess I only know about the electric grid connection, which I assumed was the limiting factor. Maybe not.

Walked around this area and the woonerf a bunch this weekend. It's so nice. Really incredible public space. The river front is becoming a really synergistic, awesome area.


Your cameras will love it photo nerds!

The Machine Shop just north of the A Mill is still being worked on. But there is a Yoga studio open in the lower level of the building. Can't wait to see how the rest of the building turns out once they get place finished up. Also the underground and upper parking deck make a great use of the space next to the Machine Shop. Other than the Yoga Studio, anyone aware of any other tenants that have signed leases for that building?

Seems strange for an event center, especially when I thought the event center that was next to Tugs expanded as part of the old Potter restaurant space in St. Anthony Main, facing first. Seems strange to try and make two go so close together.

The report calls these buildings POSH developments, Politically Opportune Subsidized Housing. They’re priced in such a way that families with children or those who are extremely poor could not afford them. To be considered affordable for those whose income is 60 percent of the area median income, rents can be 30 percent of the set income level. But often, the rents for these buildings are at the very upper end of the spectrum. For a one-person household in Minneapolis, the maximum allowable rent is $910. A-Mill studios rent for $898. Most tax-credit developers don’t set the rents that high because their projects are in lower-income neighborhoods and because they are targeting lower-income tenants. But developers of POSH properties do. The buildings also require application fees and reservation fees (to keep a unit off the market while the application is processed), additional costs that would make units out of reach for low-income families, the authors say.
[...] POSH properties like A-Mill Artists Lofts are 86 percent white, the Buzza Historic Lofts, Carleton Place Lofts, and Schmidt Artists lofts are 81, 88, and 80 percent white, respectively.
