Re: Role of Visitors and Spaces for them in Cities

I think a 'light' version of Open Streets would do really well here. Closing the street would help deal with the bike/ped pinch points, and open up space for music, food trucks, and other programming. It's not hard to get to from Northeast and Downtown. I'm guessing this is one of a few riverfront p...

They have started leasing, but I don't know how many residents are in the building is at this point.

Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

I've never noticed a correlation between living in big houses and liking Minnesota winters. It's the people who get outside to Wirth Park or their local ice rink who seem to love winter. There's also indoor soccer, indoor rock-climbing, broomball, basketball, libraries, movies, bowling, concerts, et...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

I think more bike racks along Washington would certainly help. Their primary bike parking is 14 spots around the corner from the entrance. The racks in front of Jimmy Johns are nice, but for TJ customers, they have an 'around the corner and down the block' feel to them. I can only eat so much, so ho...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

Good suggestion. I talked to them this morning when I visited the store. The store was almost empty, and the bike parking was about 1/3 full, suggesting that it's used by a mix of employees, non-customers, and customers. I mentioned the rings that the City can add to parking meters as an easy way to...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

Went yesterday and the bike racks were full, had to wait (about a minute, not the end of the world) for another customer to leave before I could lock up. Luckily at $100/rack +/-, this should be an easy problem to solve. I was a little surprised too that there wasn't any bike parking along Washingto...

Re: Prospect Park - General Topics

The developers are aiming to close by end-of-year. Standard caveat: closings with multiple sources are complex, and schedules can shift by a few months.

Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

UrsusUrbanicus, the 330 dimension is for the private parcels only. Around the block in question, the public right-of-way is about 80 feet wide, and includes streets & sidewalks. Silophant, why not more than one tower per block? Asked another way, would two 20-story towers be more welcomed by neighbo...

CHDC is the developer, they are still working on this. I agree that it seems unlikely they're still planning on Super Bowl-related lodging.

Not to say the Developer - Architect relationship is perfect, but developers also invest their time first and get paid later. Sometimes developers on a project are paid years later than the architects. There is nothing to stop architects from opening a development branch of the business, aside from ...

Re: Harriet Avenue Apartments - (2900 block of Harriet/Grand)

The setbacks of the top two floors are intended to reduce shading, though it isn't eliminated. I'm a supporter of the Midtown Greenway Coalition and I'm so grateful for the Coalition's efforts in keeping power lines away from the trench. That said, I'm not convinced by the 'shading' issue. I would m...
