A few folks cruising Edina Realty over the past few days stumbled across a choice listing: The old Medusa building on the West Bank is up for grabs. This, the site of numerous hot, sweaty shows featuring underground punk, metal, and stranger stuff still between 2007 and the summer of 2013 is on the market for the princely sum of $295,000.

Did you have any idea the building was constructed in 1931? Did you recognize what this place actually looks like in daylight hours with no intoxicants in your system? We didn't either.

As one friend said, "You can't put a pricetag on being the new king [or queen] of the underground." So we'll see if anyone gets out their checkbook to purchase a building featuring a bathroom too gross for Dan Deacon, and a spot that reportedly had its share of bed bugs, worms, and a big pit of oil underneath the building.

What we can garner from the description for "1504 S 7th Street Minneapolis, MN 55454," though, is that it's:
Only 4 steps to the light rail station. Freeway exit visibility. Large lot for many different uses. Building is ideal for creative & office use. Plenty of private outdoor space. Large paved area. Great for redevelopment! Downtown views!
Imagine your redevelopment possibilities, and I'm sure everyone remembers the "Downtown Views!" from their visits. Here are the rest of the photos provided by Edina Realty.

This would be a great place to open an Islamic center, voter registration or welfare office.

I'm sure someone could low ball it and get it. Does go to show how places literally around the corner from the light rail could be more visible and accessible (unless they don't want to be). And why are there two huge parking lots just east of the station along S 6th St years after the light rail has been running? Tax the hell out of those car dumping lots for wasting valuable space next to the light rail; if it's worth storing cars 8 hours a day 5 days a week then let them pay for it instead of subsidizing it.

295K for the building/property alone is a good deal. I'm surprised it going for that cheap.

Perhaps MNGOP could make it another new foothold in their expansion into new neighborhoods.

It might of been the nastiest place in town. But it was my favorite spot to play live.
