As redevelopment of St. Paul's former Ford Motor Co. factory site gets closer to reality, the project developer is asking the city to consider making several tweaks to the 122-acre site's master zoning plan. Among them: adding 35 large single-family homes along Mississippi River Boulevard, obtaining the flexibility to build rowhouses near a recreated river through the property, and adding parking space near offices and shops. What's not yet known, however, is how much money developer Ryan Cos. wants the city to provide for roads, sewers, utilities and affordable housing. While Ryan and the city aren't saying how much tax subsidy would be part of the deal, it's a good bet that the largest redevelopment project in St. Paul history will also become one of the heftiest tax-increment financing districts in the state.

John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 12:12 PM EST Dec 25, 2018 THE UPPER PENINSULA – Randy Kluck liked to drink. If he wasn’t drinking wine on his front porch at his house he was drinking liquor on a barstool at some dive bar in Sault Ste. Marie, where he moved to be close to his son Kevin, who came here to attend college. The two were such buddies that Kevin refers to his dad by his first name. “He really was always my best friend,” said Kevin, 36. “So I just think of him as ‘Randy.’ ” Six years ago, they were drinking on the porch, and Randy came up with an idea — how about they spend the summer together on an epic road trip through the Upper Peninsula and write a book about all the amazing bars they’d stop at along the way? There would be so many nights they’d get to spend side-by-side on barstools, so many long drives along the empty highways, so much to tell each other, so much … [Read more...] about Upper Peninsula drinking guide becomes cult classic
