Re: Maple Grove - General Topics

you can reasonably walk to almost anything you could ever want that is "mainstream" from this core central area. I call B.S. My sister's family lives there so I'm pretty familiar with the area. Who exactly can walk to a grocery store? Or a drug store? A restaurant, maybe, and even then the number o...

Re: Maple Grove - General Topics

Hello Everyone, I have been meaning to post about all of the development in Maple Grove over the past year or so, but Nathan beat me to the punch. I actually live in the heart of all of this new development. While I agree that it is very suburban, it is done in a way that gives you the best of both ...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

I am more disgruntled with the people in this world that give up and have no ambition to change things for the better. I would rather "dream" than settle for second rate. I am all for building something of substance that is the most well rounded and interacts with the surrounding area. I respect the...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Yes. And they could just...sit on it. Or leave it as the parking lot it is. Or start building and lose financing and we'd have a foundation just sitting there like we did in the North Loop over on First Street. While I understand peoples reservations, is this really a healthy approach to anything? ...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Even if they selected the Duval proposal and for some reason it was not able to come through, what would stop the city from putting a stop to the "new" proposal. At the end of the day, they have almost more power than necessary. Because they would no longer own the land?[/quote] Just because you ow...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

The advantage would be to involve the community and value what we have to say. Perhaps the people that actually live nearby or in the city itself would have suggestions/input that the planning commission would not even think of. This just comes off as "we know what is best for you" mentality. If th...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Exactly. The city did not even allow it to make it to a public forum or meeting. While dreaming, imagination, and creativity do not "literally" get steel and glass out of the ground, it forms the foundation for what can lead to a sense of community and civic pride. What the city planning commission...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

This shows how little faith I now have in the city of Minneapolis from ever truly embracing the future. Yes, it's all the city's fault for a developer who overpromised and then couldn't deliver. "Dreaming, imagination, and creativity" doesn't get steel and glass out of the ground. He never had the ...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

This shows how little faith I now have in the city of Minneapolis from ever truly embracing the future. Same old ideas with no vision beyond the usual. What happened to dreaming, imagination, and creativity. While I understand reservations, it is truly a disappointment IMO. If anything, Duval gave m...
