Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports of Denver-based Brickstone's new project

Brickstone is hoping to "demolish a 1950s office building on the north side of Lake Calhoun in order to build a 200-unit residential tower," according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The newspaper says the project is evolving: "The company now says that it wants to build an eight-story building that is 112 feet tall, down from its initial idea of a 13-story building."
 
 
Excerpt: "In August 2015, an entity associated with Brickstone paid the Ackerberg Group $8 million for the Lake Pointe Corporate Center at 3100 W. Lake St. The 50,000-square-foot building was built in 1953 and is known best for a colorful, nearly three-story steel sculpture on its driveway and a pair of oversized green Adirondack chairs on its lawn."

The developer still needs permission before it can move forward: "Brickstone needs a conditional-use permit from city planners to redevelop the property because the maximum height limitation in the area is 56 feet, or about four stories, and the site is within the Shoreland Overlay District, which further limits the height of structures to 35 feet, or about two stories."
