It will be nice to see this developed, but only one 18-20 story tower on a 8.7-acre site? The No-Good NEBL NIMBYs are going to stroke out over this one.

The knee-jerk crowd over at Preserve Minneapolis is already organizing to protest this proposal. We should voice our support for urban, walkable developments like these that make the city more vibrant and livable. Don't let a few loud mouthed shout it down.

Sign me up!!

We need to urge Minneapolis's elected officials to cut ties with these activist groups.

what exactly would they be preserving? a boring 60's era building?

there is ample land here to develop. this group should be pushing the park board to make nominal improvements to places like father Hennepin park, which looks like crap with it's old, torn up asphalt paths.

Why do this tiny group of NIMBY's have such a bug up their butt? This area is turning into one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city!

Because of CHANGE and no one likes change when its been status quo for 50 plus years is my guess. From what was posted in 200 Central the NIMBYs might not even actually live in the area the way it sounds.

that huge swath of surface parking adjacent the st Anthony main parking group will be going bye-bye. I call that a win for the neighborhood.

This project will be discussed at the City Planning Commission of the Whole on June 15th. I bet NEBL will try to save the "historic" parking lot from being developed.

New plans call for a slightly more dense development.

This proposal represents only 2.54-acres of the nearly nine-acre site.

They made significant design improvements, particularly to the row house /townhome component. I'm not always keen on faux historic architecture, but here they're at least trying to do a good job. Plus its nice to see some contrast given all the ultra modern high rises going up nearby.

So looking at older rendering and the newer at first I didn't seem much different besides updated tower look. But looking harder it looks like the tower was shifted closer to the Atlus tower (maybe?), and one floor added to both apartment buildings, making them both at 7 floors. They say now five...?

Does that sound about right? And they added a parking garage in the middle too?

Was the 20 story tower portion always going to look like that or is that a new rendering?

I am also on the side of liking this design and think the townhomes will be great in that area. Sidenote: the height is 234, not 220.

Agree. The townhouses give the street level a nice human scale, and the red brick relates well to St Anthony Main and the other nearby buildings. I'm always happy to see buildings going up that have a warm and cheerful coloration given our long winters.
