Provision of sites and building ac
commodations for new business insti
tutions is becoming a public necessity
in Minneapolis. Such a serious matter
has the scarcity of sites become and
the inability to get buildings already
standing for immediate occupancy for
the new industries that are constantly
crowding in on the city, that a move
ment is reported on foot to syndicate a
lot of business properties and to pro
vide means for the erection of suitable
Whatever may be the cause of the
present situation, it is one of -the hard
est things in the world to get a suitable
site for the new companies that are in
tending to establish houses in Minne
apolis. A difficult situation was over
come the other day by W. B. Fiske,
who bought a brick building and moved
it onto his own property to provide
housing for a good tenant. That was
a bit or quick work that can't be done
every day.
Two Hard Propositions.
In the first place, it seems hard to
get propertyholders to sell property at
a reasonable price in the second place,
it seems hard to get local monied men
to put up buildings on a reasonable
rental basis. This is not the absolute
rule, but new concerns get the impres
sion that they must break into town
with a sledgehammer
Only lately one of the new concerns
in the city is said to have been almost
driven to St. Paul for a building site,
because the property owner, or his rep
resentative, quibbled so that the firm
lost its nerve and was almost ready to
leave town, when a real estate agent
discovered the predicament and was
loyal enough to the city to make a
satisfactory deal and retain the firm.
Unity Is Wanted.
Lack of unanimity between the real
estate men is said to be one cause of
the trouble. A new firm has to look
over all the real estate offices to get a
good idea of what can be obtained
here in the way of land or buildings.
Then it has to do a lot of fine diplo
matic work to get any sort of an option
on the property. At least this is the
way the difficulty has been stated by
some of the business firms that intend
to locate in Minneapolis.
One way out of the situation has
been found in the employment of out
side real estate men to do the purchas
ing. The best solution, however, is
the suggested plan of centralizing the
situation in a syndicate which shall
buy up business properties, hold them
at a small profit, and then secure money
for erection of buildings in case owners
of land cannot be induced to make a
fair deal on a long lease basis.
Plan Finds Favor.
['I think the plan is iust the thing,"
said one of the real estate men. '"i
has come to my knowledge that the
prospective Minneapolis business and.
manufacturing concern/3 have had a
pretty hard time of it to get sites and
buildings here owing to the attitude of
property owners, who seem to want to

These lots admirably situated opposite Franklin Steele Park, are bounded by Park and Portland

heart of the city.

make tremendous profits on their hold
ings ,and who often cannot raise the
money to put up the proper kind of
buildings themselves,
1 should go even further and have
the syndicate go into "the business of
putting up structures after the manner
followed by W. A. Eggleston of the
-David C. Bell Investment company,
who rented two buildings for William
Deeruig of Chicago beffore he started
building them, or nearly so*. I this
way he provided good accommodations
tor firms which wished to move and
made room, by an expansion of the
city's office room capacity, for new
firms and the growth of the city."
