When these buildings have low occupancy, they start to become infested with pests. My office building is being treated right now for it due to being about 20% occupied since March. I wonder how much of the rest of downtown is going through the same thing because I know a few people who do still work downtown and they say it's like a ghost town.
    You didn't mention low occupancy you stated low vacancy. Yes low occupancy is an issue, but Minneapolis the city itself will be fine in the long even if a few developers won't be.

But for example my future son-in-law works out of PHX for a DC company. That's been promised for 30 years but the Plague kicked it into high gear.

      If you can work in any of the top 100 cities without any discriminator, many (most?) of us will choose to abandon the major cities and go to places like Raleigh, Portland, Minneapolis, Santa Fe.

      I can imagine Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah all spawning cheap, weird Portland-like large towns. And it just doesn't take much influx with such tiny base pops to begin to swing those states towards sanity.

      If not for the pandemic*, I’d consider living in a redder portion of Minnesota. I just couldn’t bring myself to live in the Dakotas or Wisconsin.

      I want some entertainment. The only thing MT has for entertainment is wondering which of your neighbors is going to jail next for f—king a sheep. Fine dining in the Dakotas is the Olive Garden in GD Fargo. WY is just a Yellowstone death lottery. Utah seems the the most extraordinarily awful place to live, nice to visit sure.

        • Couple of things- IMHO, people are overstating the "move". For sure, people will move- that I have no doubt about.

          But one of the reasons California is so popular is that it's a great state to live in. Especially the Bay Area- if you examine the area- you'll note that there are some pretty remote areas pretty darned close to the area- but the density in the Bay is much higher. Who would want to live in 100F dry heat when you can live in very comfortable 70-80 F weather- constantly. The whole northern bay is REALLY nice to be in- and you are just a few hours from some incredible wine country. For that matter, the southern bay isn't far from southern areas that are really great.

          Farmers are there because things grow, not because they seek a blue state to live in.

          On top of the nominal weather, you are also just a few hours away from some of the best skiing on the planet, one of the most spectacular parks, and ocean.

          Companies stayed there because it was easy to attract and keep people there.

          All the areas that were posted are nice- but their trade offs are a little worse than most of CA.

          Unless you really love the outdoors, there's literally nothing in Idaho. Nothing. I love going back, and seeing people, and noting how nice the mountains are, but I would never want to live there again. Most of the Rockies are just like that. It's freaking cold in the winter, and really hot in the summer, and super dry in most flat places. At least there's more things to do here in Michigan to deal with the cold weather.

          There have constantly been people moving from CA to ID- was happening when I was going to school, and has been on and off constantly. It never really sticks.

          Then the compromise- it's funny to see many people be bothered by the min wage increase being in the bill, and then being bothered by it being taken out. Again, Senator Biden is probably the one directing President Biden- put more in the bill than you want, and know what you are willing to take out before you go into the negotiation. Even better, you get a solid measure from the population of the latter if they can go into a bill later. It makes Joe look like he's really concerned for the masses asap, and plans on doing other things later. It also reminds people that HIS focus is not on the impeachment at all.

          That's how I see it, right now. We are less than a month into this administration.

                Do you work in RTP?

                When I lived in Chapel Hill I really did not like going into Raleigh. It felt rundown and neglected -- like the lower end sprawl of LA without the LA.

                But I was probably not seeing the better part of the city.

                  I dont know when you lived here, but i think the city has has been revitalized over the last decade due to medical and tech transplants moving in. Its been boom times for awhile in that respect.

                  We chose to live north of the city in Wake Forest. More house for less money. Quaint little downtown, etc.

                            how bad is the summer humidity compared to MN? That’s honestly one of my questions as I don’t have much experience in southern humidity .

                              Humidity is fairly similar. Obviously there are a lot more 90 degree days for a longer period. You are trading that for almost no really.cold weather and very limited snow (1 snowfall this winter so far).

                              • It’s hard to beat the UP. Today’s high is 5F, and the air is white and moving briskly sideways. But then in summer we get all the cold rain and a lot of mosquitoes to make up for it, with a growing season that’s almost long enough for radishes before we get snowed in again.
