Yes it is. Unfortunately, people are already complaining that it will block the Witch's Hat Water Tower. I was just at happy hour at Hodges Bend and I mentioned this development to the group I was with and a couple were "concerned" that it will block the view. :nuts: Hopefully I was able to convince them that it won't.Damn....this is a great project!
Such is life in a city that is growing, sure there are land marks but guess what before that landmark was there something else was a land mark. It is what happens as cities grow and change over time. I get it we like our nice little things but enough of the roadblocks to growth and progress in this city.Yes it is.

I would love to see University Avenue (from 25th Ave in MPLS to Rice St in STP) lined with 10 - 20-story apartments and condos.Per Twitter, developer has reached an agreement with the neighborhood group to decrease tower height to 13 stories and widen it, with no net loss of units. Sounds like the neighborhood group now formally supports the proposal at 13 stories.
In the past, it has appeared that Prospect Park has had a sort of unwritten agreement with the development community that they won't stand in the way of density and height on the north side of University if the developers leave the predominantly low-density residential south of University alone. I'm honestly surprised to see the neighborhood support 13 stories on the south side of University. Of course I'd love to see 17 get built with or without the neighborhood's support. But 13 getting built now is better than a protracted fight over 17, and is indicative that the neighborhood has some appetite for midrises fronting university on the south side, which is great.
I believe that box is the other developer's proposal. I don't remember all of the details but I know there is an active proposal on that property as well.the building/property on the corner to the west of this project was recently sold to a developer in the past 1-2 years wasnt it? Do we know if that has a pending project or will be integrated into this some point in the future? I see theres a dashed line box in between this development and that lot, and Im curious what thats supposed to be. I dont remember who bought that parcel, but Im almost positive that it did.
