  Recently the 84th skyway in downtown Minneapolis was officially opened to the public that joins the Ameriprise and Accenture towers.  The skyways in downtown Minneapolis connect more than a handful of office buildings—they keep the people that create commerce flowing throughout the city some of which live in condos.  The condos that link up to the skyway are an interesting breed of real estate.   A few of them are highlighted below: IVY Hotel and Residences is the premier building connected to the skyway which is home to a local restaurant, Starwood Hotel and luxury condos.  Valet parking, Spa make up some of the amenities within the buildings. Centre Village was the first condo building in downtown Minneapolis that married condo living with skyway access.  Built in the early 80s duri...

I discovered Pho Quan Restaurant in Minneapolis, located at 1815 Nicollet Avenue, some years ago.  It's still there, still homely, and still one of the best places to grab lunch in the Twin Cities. Don't look for charming ambiance, clean tables or cute southeast Asian decor.  You won't find it at Pho Quan.  But the Vietnamese noodle soup is the best anywhere. The place is frequented by some of my musician friends from the Minnesota Orchestra, including colleagues Robert Anderson (bass) and Taichi Chen (violin).  Pho Quan was recently rated among the "25 Great Places to Eat" in the Twin Cities by and other food sites have followed suit. Choose from vegetable, beef, chicken or shrimp bowls, available in three sizes.  The price is astonishing and the Pho is unquestionably ta...

If you need a place to stay when you come shopping for a new home and also want to treat yourself to a full luxury experience, then consider spending a few nights at the Graves 601 Hotel in downtown Minneapolis.Each of the 225 rooms have been filled with the latest technology and are masterfully designed with high fashion trends. Let's just say that "modern luxury" is the term that best describes the hotel. I like the fact that they have 24 hour room service for those late night munchies. They also offer 48 inch plasma TVs in every room, in-room safes, concierge services, spa services, and of course a 100-gram bar of Hermes soap, to name a few. There are also examples of high fashion art throughout the complex. To get an idea of what I am talking about, take their virtual tour.Pricing f...
