Re: Amtrak Empire Builder and Intercity Rail to Chicago

Not totally sure where to post this, but searching for keywords "St. Louis Chicago Rail" mostly pulled up this thread. A few weeks ago family from the St. Louis area mentioned that the upgrade to supposed high-speed rail to Chicago still wasn't finished. I was initially skeptical, because I know tha...

Re: White Bear Lake & Vadnais Heights - General Topics

I guess I'm not sure what you're getting at? My point was just that there are a lot of goofy things going on with this story, and "they're trying to lure a brewery into car-centric neighborhood" seems like kind of a random one to call out.

Re: White Bear Lake & Vadnais Heights - General Topics

To be fair, a lot of breweries in Minneapolis are also in random spots without commercial neighbors or great walkability.

What ever happened to those plans to create some sort of whitewater feature for kayaking or whatever?

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Not that it was an either/or situation, but adding the Green Line tracks did a lot to improve University Avenue overall, which to that point had been a really wide, ugly, industrial corridor.

The Snelling intersection, though, especially now with the stadium there, appears shortsighted.

Costco is the last store I want anywhere in St Paul, much less Midway.
Not having one in St. Paul doesn’t stop locals from shopping there. It just means people are spending their money in the suburbs instead of the city.

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

I know we all want to get away from the big box stores and auto-centric layout but ... it might not be the worst thing if a place like Costco or Home Depot moved into one of these spaces, albeit with a more pedestrian friendly design. They're places we all go to anyway, but now you just have to driv...

None of this is far from where Adam Banks lived in the Mighty Ducks too, at 450 North Hennepin Ave.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

Yeah, good point. I was in a hurry and not immediately sure where to put this question. I thought about the University of Minnesota topic, but that seems more for things specifically tied to the school. The northeast/southeast thread seemed like an adequate location as kind of the general discussion...

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

I noticed at Bohemian Flats there’s a section that has been flattened out, almost like it’s set to become a parking lot, though I can’t imagine it’s actually going to be a parking lot based on the location. Anyone know what they’re doing?

Re: O'Gara's Development - 164 Snelling Ave N

That stretch of Fairview has been closed for several months, and most of the time there’s no visible work going on. Then for a while they decided to close down Prior for a while too. Sigh.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

MSPBJ has some more context. https://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/news/2019/08/29/after-closing-its-original-northeast-location-new.html The reason I thought of this is because I just saw New Bohemia is closing the Lake Street location too, although that's under the guise of "an offer we couldn't ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I wish more people treated it as one city that just happens to have two downtowns. Maybe it's because I've lived near the border since 2009, but this is always how I've experienced it. There are things in both, and they're really not all that different. I think a lot of it just comes to where you l...

I heard the New Bohemia at Hennepin and University closed. Has anyone heard much about why, or if anything new is expected to replace it soon?

So I suppose we should get started on converting south Minneapolis back into wetlands too then?
