The problem: The owner of two buildings, one of which is a high-tech hub, isn't interested in selling.

Whatever gets this deal done I'm for. Plenty of people could use the work, I'll gladly pay my small part.

Not gonna happen. I have been in the 501 building. The stuff in there from the electrical, cooling, servers and most importantly the network connections are not easily movable. It would be easier to clean the waste site in Arden Hills. The sub station next to the building is a similar story. The 501 building has some of the best connectivity in MN next to the Tri Tech building and Quest building in downtown Minneapolis.

Lester Bagley once said several cities were "interested" in the Vikings,if this was true why would the Vikings put up with all this mumble-jumble?? Relax they are going nowhere,this reminds me of someone picking out the lot & builder before he goes to the bank for a loan!!!REALLY Minnestoa "fans" Big 10 football is much better,by the way Minnesota is in the Big 10!

Hey Vikes... how about if you pay to renovate the dome just like they did in Vancouver? Yeah... I know. This isn't a new idea. It's just that it's a good idea. And, really, it's about all you're going to get.
