I think he means this, it's the Sears building in Minneapolis.

The rendering looks good, if a major anchor would take a chance on Sears Crosstown, I'm sure it would look good too.

Yeah the Sears building in Minneapolis is something we should try to achieve. I contacted the EHDA president Van Himel and he said that there was little info released about the group planning to redevelop the Sears Crosstown Building. The neighborhood association might even take a trip to Minny to check it out.

Memphis' looks exactly the same but Minneapolis' is 1.9 million sq ft (Memphis' is 1.3 million).

Here's an article about the proposed redevelopment...

That Minneapolis Sears is a very nice looking project. I would like to see the Memphis Sears building find a similarly good/high profile use.

Its on the corner of N. Parkway and Cleveland. The best place to see it, IMO, is to get to Little Saigon and turn north on Cleveland. Its a huge building to you can't miss it.
