who are we? what do we do?

We're development lovers. We're intrigued beyond belief about what's going up on the next block or what that old run down building on the corner could soon be restored and reborn as.

We're all about progress. We're all about growth. We're all about a sustainable future. But most of all, we're all about Minneapolis.

Our goal is to inform the city of Minneapolis, the state of Minnesota, and just about anyone else in the world who cares to take a moment and explore our website, all about the development occurring within this great city.

We're here to educate. We're here to enlighten minds. We're here to answer questions.

We're The Development Tracker | Minneapolis and we hope you enjoy everything we're about.


Our Goal

Unite the private and the public. Facilitate the conversation. Connect the community.

While we're all about everything development related in Minneapolis, but we're also about a lot more. We want people to realize that there is a way that you can play a role in shaping the future growth of your community and our website is here to begin that conversation. We alert you of the changes, show you the plans, and allow you to voice your concern.

Growth is an exciting thing. Yet with growth we must ensure positivity for the city and it's people.


WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE? 

What makes us different from a typical business news source? Well, first off, we're not a publishing news center. We're a creative website with a blog component where we post the latest in development news right at your finger tips. We also don't want to communicate like a traditional business newspaper.

We're building a website for the community, not necessarily just the business clientele. We want to convey development news to you in a way that is easy to read, easy to understand, and most importantly, something that doesn't bore you. We write in plain english and explain things in common terms. You don't have to be a developer or a real estate agent to understand our posts and the information communicated throughout our website.

We're essentially the "middle man". We don't represent the NIMBYs (No In My Backyard) or the YIMBYs (Yes In My Backyard). We post an opinion here and there but really what we are all about is a progressive and positive future. Development can be great, but development can also be harmful. We're here to ensure that the community knows what is going on in hopes that every development that occurs in the future in one that is beneficial to the community and something that the community truly desires.


we're part of a family, it all started with cdinduluth.

The website you're viewing right now has a big sister.

About seven years ago we created a website called CDINDULUTH. The website reported on the latest development news within the Twin Ports and followed the many construction projects going on within the area. Now, there's no need to worry, the website didn't go anywhere and is still active... just with a few changes.

In 2017 we changed the name of CDINDULUTH to The Development Tracker | Duluth, allowing for us to strengthen our brand and prepare for further expansion in the future. The website still remains the same with the same goals and values originally associated with it, we're just ensuring that we are truly more transparent with what the website is about, starting with the name itself.
