Master Engineering To Be Involved In BJ's Replacement Project, Here Are Other Examples Of Their Work
Photos and blog post by John Hoff
Excitement has been building, and discussion growing about the plan to replace the unsightly and tawdry B.J.'s strip club with a bakery and liquor store, hopefully both of the high-end variety. Click here for a blog post announcing the plan to replace B.J.'s, and click here for more discussion.
Clearly, the last thing we need in North Minneapolis would be more liquor stores going out of their way to market to chronic inebriates. Though my position is I would be in favor of a taco stand instead of B.J.'s, (did I mention a vacant lot would satisfy me, too?) But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that "liquor store" means something high-end, with a selection of gourmet foods and NO ATTEMPTS MADE TO CAPTURE THE CHRONIC INEBRIATE MARKET BY, FOR EXAMPLE, SELLING SINGLE PLASTIC CUPS.
As part of this discussion about replacing B.J.'s, I thought it would be good to show...
...examples of two other buildings which show the gorgeous handiwork of Master Engineers. Both of these buildings are quite near the proposed B.J.'s development. The top picture shows one building that houses a legal clinic, the bottom three pictures are all the same building.
