Did I get roofied yesterday or did I actually see the banner of this forum was a picture of St Paul but actually said MINNEAPOLIS. I responded to the forum and pointed out the issue and it was quickly replaced with Sao Paulo. I was just wondering if anyone else saw that???

Looking at some of these photos makes me wonder WTF were the old city leaders thinking to tear down some of these places.

Good news for Minneapolis

Regis will move its headquarters to former Target West campus in Minneapolis

After 27 years in Edina, Regis Corp. announced Wednesday that it will move its headquarters to Target Corp.'s former campus on the western border of Minneapolis.

Regis will occupy 65,000 square feet — the top four floors of the eight-level building at 3701 Wayzata Blvd.

Noticed tonight that the 50-story City Center tower had another test of lighting that now changed colors.

Also noticed that the 5th Street Towers have a new, dynamic lighting system. Presumably this will replace the outdated neon tubes that surrounded the top of both buildings.

Hi, just wondering if anyone has info if this is a temporary lighting system from the city of MPLS "encouraging"$/promoting tenants to show off during the NCAA Final 4 tournament, or something new owners of "City Center" may be forecasting as permanent change/adornment for the top of tower?

The building directly north of the US Court House also has a new lighting system in place across the street from the Grain Exchange. Was illuminated with up lighting in a blue hue the other night.....

Speaking of the Final Four....Why did they not include a decorative security fence that had removable panels when they build the stadium? That temporary fence that has more or less become a permanent fixture around the stadium looks tacky.

the stadium commission tried to construct a permanent one about a year ago but the city shut them down or something, saying it "closed off the stadium to the public" or something absurd like that.

This isn't 'skyscraper' related and for that I apologize, but I thought folks here would appreciate this article. Two individuals from NYC went on a tour across America in search of a new city to call home. They chose Minneapolis. I like reading about how awesome this city is from "outsiders."

2018 estimates are out. Minneapolis and St. Paul continue to roll.

Related note, I was talking to an architect at DJR yesterday and he said they are working on 60(!) projects right now, didn't specify if that was in Minneapolis proper or the region on the whole, but either way pretty stunning.

That population estimate for Minneapolis is truly remarkable. 50,000 people since 2010! And that's only the 2018 estimate...still two more years of growth ahead of the census.

I know there has been a shift to more urban living since 2010 but we’re talking about a 12% (and 10% for St. Paul ) gain over 8 years in a major Midwest city that had spent decades shrinking!

Am I reading the 2010-2018 estimate correctly? 264,468 people have moved to the Twin Cities metro in the 8 years??

The US Census Bureau has released its annual estimates and they have Minneapolis at 425,403 and St. Paul at 307,695, a gain of only 4,146 between the two. The Metropolitan Council shows a gain of 13,440, which is a pretty big difference. Who has the more legit numbers?

Census estimates are always more conservative. Just different methodologies. I tend to trust the Met Council's estimates more as they take into account a lot more data than the Census Bureau. Met Council tracks all building permits and unit construction for every city (cities report to the Met Council annually), where as ACS data only estimates based upon random sample surveys of residents in each city in the country.

Also keep in mind that the Met Council only counts people in the 7 counties that they have jurisdiction over. There are an additional 9 counties that are part of the MSP MSA.
