For a good time, read the letter at the end of the packet.
"Parking is sadly being removed from these priceless urban neighborhoods, which is the lifeblood of neighborhood retail."

This is a crazy statement. However, his point about residential rents subsidizing an empty retail space is spot on. It makes it way harder to finance and jacks the rents up.

Vitally important to be able to get into my car and drive to the coffee shop 300 feet away.

If the spots on either side of the entrance are already taken, I will be using the drive-thru. If there isn’t one, I will drive around while my phone finds me one.
Unsustainable fossil burning fool.

Minneapolis launched a new data portal yesterday. Among the maps is one showing active planning applications with the city.

From that map, it looks like Gunsbury made a submission for this project on October 2nd, and it will be on the November 2nd CPC meeting agenda. The map suggests that two units have been added since the CoW submission. Hopefully that means the design has also been improved.

There was a truck out in this parking lot today drilling a core sample.

They are dismantling the billboard on top of the current building at this site today. Seems like demolition may be imminent.

Still sad about the new designs but I guess its still a "win" to replace the parking lot and to have continued investment in the city

Here's the approval packet, for future reference. The design didn't really change, but the parking bays on Hennepin were removed, and the building will apparently be called the HenCen.

Excited for this to be the last winter of those sidewalks never being cleared.
