There’s a reason Minneapolis is nicknamed Teardownopolis. The city has a reputation for having a short memory and not much sentimentality for old buildings. (Just check out Lost Twin Cities to get a taste.)
Despite a flood of new construction of surprisingly similar shaped apartments, apartment demand still exceeds the supply of housing in the area. That means developers will continue to construct the big squares, and occasionally a restaurant with prime real estate, will become victim to the continual march of progress. These are the restaurants lost in the name of new housing.
