Umm, the rent is way to high for anyone to want to rent. Just like all the other units downtown, regardless of a grocery store. It probably would just turn to section 8 anyway.

the govt. shouldn't be involved in any private/public commercial enterprises. If you're against Ziggy Wilf getting money, you ought be against this as well.

All anti-stadium folks...can't wait to see your posts. I keep hearing how you don't want your tax money to help private businesses...but here you go, it happens every day. I'd rather see the stadium built in dt mpls, although building it in Arden Hills is an opportunity to get rid of an eyesore

Outrageous socialism! Coleman and the City Council should be thrown out of office! Why is the city in the real estate development business? Is it because the projects are not worth a dam?????

Wow. Food and housing is somehow the same as a Vikings Stadium. Previous posters who equate to what is mostly a loan as the same as funding the Vikings stadium have lost all credibility with me.

So...using tax money and state funding to provide loans to private held companies are ok as long as YOU approve of their use? There is not one dollar of tax revenue generated from this project, yet you oppose one that generates millions.

No public funds for a grocery owned by a multimillionaire family. Or, for a developer who over the years has been known to proceed with projects without having a solid plan or financing in place. Any developer who is always busy knocking on doors in government buildings looking for money for deals for himself isn't to be trusted.

There is a role for govt financing, but wouldn't it be better to invest in manufacturing or hi tech which create real jobs?

There better not be ANY of MY tax money spent on this. NO TAX SPENDING ON ANYTHING, EVER!
