Re: St. Anthony Village

Community meeting update: developers have hilariously added a pathway between the sidewalk on Stinson Parkway and one of the buildings "fronting" the street, because this is the kind of thing you can do when you propose a 95 foot set-back from the sidewalk. They've also added a remarkable "proof of ...

Re: Duluth Business News

Dr. David C. Herman, Essentia's CEO, said it's too early to know exactly how much the health system will spend as it revitalizes the sprawling campus on the east end of Duluth's downtown.

Re: St. Anthony Village

http://www.savmn.com/DocumentCenter/View/826 The group came back with a plan that is significantly worse. No street frontage to speak of. 51 affordable units vs 97 originally. A brand new large parking lot fronting a portion of the Stinson/Lowry commercial node. It would create a 90s-esque suburban ...

Re: Thrivent's Surface Parking Lots

After a brief glance, I would rather see the retail portion be at ground level as opposed to in the skyways. I'm not sure that a residential lobby will necessarily activate the street and put eyes on the street. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk One of the original proposals did have ground level ...

French was also the only at-large candidate who did not respond to the Our Streets Mpls candidate survey and the only at-large candidate who did not respond to the League of Women Voters survey. I'll be ranking some combination of Vetaw, Henry and Hogan.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Every delay costs money, so they're going to have to justify that the re-bidding will result in greater cost savings than the cost of the four-month delay.

Hmm, I don't have hard data, but it seems like Minneapolis is retrofitting intersections with bump-outs at a much higher rate city-wide than St. Paul these days.
