Hate for the traveling taprooms went from an Internet joke to a criminal case over the weekend. Now five men are charged with misdemeanors for allegedly throwing water balloons and shooting squirtguns at mobile pub passengers in Minneapolis.
M.A. Mortenson is looking to develop a residential and retail project on a key parcel along East Hennepin Avenue in the heart of northeast Minneapolis' bustling commercial district, the developer confirmed Tuesday.
Ryan Cos. is now considering building condos and an automated parking system, rarely seen in Middle America, on a previously contentious thin parcel abutting the Viking Stadium parking ramp.
Automated parking systems are vertical solutions for small spaces. The system relies on elevators, lifts or conveyor belts to mechanically park vehicles in stalls stacked one top of one another.
The narrow strip of land where Ryan is considering using the concept was the source of an unexpected fight for development rights between the Minneapolis-based firm and the Minnesota Vikings last fall. The key site is located between Park and Chicago avenues just across 4th Street from the light-rail stop and kitty-corner from the new Vikings Stadium.
