NEW DIGS: Twin Cities developer Ryan Cos. said that it has reached a deal with the Minneapolis Star Tribune to "buy five square blocks in downtown Minneapolis, adjacent to the planned Vikings stadium," for a $400M mixed-use commercial and residential complex and public park. Ryan's proposal includes a "two-block green space leading into the planned entrance of the new stadium to the immediate east, a parking ramp, 1.16 million square feet of office space, 40,000 square feet of retail and 300 units of housing" (ST. PAUL PIONEER-PRESS, 5/15). Twins President Dave St. Peter yesterday said of the Vikings' new stadium design, "It's a gorgeous building. What's really cool about it is it's unique. There really isn't another structure in the National Football League, or anywhere else in American sport, that looks like that" (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 5/15).
