MINNEAPOLIS-The $400-million mixed-use redevelopment plan by locally-based Ryan Cos. was overwhelmingly endorsed by the Stadium Implementation Committee on Thursday.

Wells-Fargo & Co. is reportedly interested in occupying the office towers,. Ryan Vice President of Development Rick Collins told the newspaper that there is no formal agreement at the moment between the developer and Wells Fargo. See story in the Star Tribune.
