COVID stresses downtown Minneapolis commercial property owners
Jim Durda, general manager of City Center in Minneapolis, several weeks ago opened a $3 million-remodeled entrance on Seventh Street and the Nicollet Mall. The response in COVID-19 times was underwhelming for what’s definitely an upgrade.

“In this lousy economy, we’re doing OK,” said Durda, an optimist by nature who’s focused on the post-COVID future.

Chase Bank will soon open an office in City Center. Brooks Brothers has reopened in renovated space and Bell Bank plans to begin construction this fall on an inaugural downtown office. Discounter Marshall’s is open seven days weekly and several restaurants remain open.

RSK: Madison unfortunately is in the same boat especially downtown and State Street!
