I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble with Minnescraper — I thought maybe it was just me...

If one day SSC permanently went down, what would you do? You'd start a new forum the day after!

I saw this. I definitely like the idea. Though I doubt many parking lot owners would like the idea of losing a few precious spaces for trees.

City of St. Paul just released this press release,

"Saint Paul secures final financing for the Penfield project

HUD mortgage insurance commitment was key financial hurdle

SAINT PAUL—Today, the City of Saint Paul finalized financing for the Penfield project including a commitment from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide mortgage insurance for the Penfield. Closing on the financing is expected within the next 30 days, with construction beginning shortly thereafter.

“The Penfield project is catalytic, not just for downtown but for all of Saint Paul. It will drive business along the Central Corridor and provide the quality, full-service grocery store our downtown residents having been seeking for many years. I am thrilled we have received this critical HUD commitment, and I look forward to breaking ground in the very near future,” Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman said.

The Penfield, located just one block from the Central Corridor light rail transit line, is a LEED Silver, new construction, mixed-use development with 254 market-rate apartments, and a 27,000 square foot full-service Lunds grocery store..."

Stadium Village is getting denser and denser!


Student housing development coming to U of M neighborhood near Central Corridor

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

"CPM Property Management in Minneapolis has a student-housing complex in the works for the Stadium Village area near the University of Minnesota campus.

Although design plans are still coming together, part of the project involves a 12-story tower, according to Daniel Oberpriller of CPM.

About two-thirds of the building runs six stories, he says. The development will also have 36,000 square feet of retail space..."

"...The existing Arby’s restaurant, CSL Plasma location, and commercial space on the property would be torn down to make way for the building..."

The U of M skyline is growing!


p.s. : I hope they are going to keep all the 2-story brick buildings on that block.

Here’s a rendering of the Stadium Village small area plan, which CPED has put together, showing the student housing parcel being developed by CPM Property Management. From what I've heard, CPM is taking the CPED concept into consideration for it's development.



CPED's entire Stadium Village small area plan can be read here.

That particular intersection looks like a slum right now, so any TOD like that is more than welcome

I'm starting to worry that Minnescraper won't be coming back online anytime soon. This message was posted on their Twitter account April 27th, and hasn't been updated since:

Hey everyone sorry about the problems with the forum right now. We're working on it and hope to get it up again over the weekend.
I guess we're all going to have to slum it on SSC for the time being...

It does sucks, especially right now. There are lots of projects about to get underway. The Vikings stadium about to be approved. The PP rundown revealed some nice news about Wellington's project at 2700 the Avenue and the Old Dutch site (I'd heard it was going to be torn down and turned into a CVS) on Univ. becoming apartments. The first render of the Univ/Hamline TOD.

A lot is happening.

Here's a render of a new apartment project planned at 1101 University Ave near the UofM. Another project from Doran Companies, they are becoming quite prolific.

1101 University places it directly AT the U of M campus. Will they be demolishing several fraternity houses to build this?
