Apparently the reports of the death of Minneapolis were premature. . . I don't see big projects like this being built in the suburbs

I laugh every time I hear this area referred to as the North Loop. There is no loop. Developers can dream and talk all they want, but the Loop belongs to Chicago.

[Cue misinformed comments about drinking fountains and crime.] I'm really glad to see these new developments coming in. More and more professionals are realizing that life in the city is the way to go. Now if they just put a decent school downtown so our family (and the many families living in the same building as us) can stay.

This is one of the better looking in-fill projects being proposed. Get it built!

Very happy to have the infill, and to stick it to the suburbs. But the rates have me humming "gentrification"...

Some affordable housing would be nice. Two bucks a square foot! They must be real nice places. Wouldnt help me though, couldnt afford 2k a month for RENT. Glad to see Minneapolis getting nicer though.

Of course, those new apartments will probably cost, like, $2000 per month for an efficiency.

@justaperton---Check the prices of the condos and townhouses that people have purchased in the North Loop in the past fifteen years. That's reality. The price range is $150,000-$1,500,000. That's for 800sqf-3,000sqf. Less expensive apartments will bring all of the home values down at a time when owners have already seen significant drops in prices on re-sale. That would be completely unacceptable. And Mr. Lund---There aren't many of the Earth Shoe crowd living in the North Loop/Warehouse District anymore (or bike messengers.) A bike shop is OK, but we aren't "alley-catting" here. We want to shop for French perfume, girly-girl shoes and fluffy pillows in pretty colors. And, we want to wear our girly-girl shoes to the store to shop---Not gear up as though we are going to be hiking the Pacific Coast Trail.
