Re: Foundry Mixed-Use Development - 115-125 1st St N, 128 2nd St N, 128 1st Av N

Part of the issue is access/signage to the C ramp. While it isn't particularly far from the NL there is likely a mental barrier for some since it isn't immediately clear to an outsider where to access the monster structure. This is a good point. I have lived here my entire life (35 years) and only ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Looking at all the diagrams, where is it forcing people off? The Y split near Portland can change to favor continuing west onto 50th, no problem, if that's what the traffic demands. The ramps up to Lyndale hitting right turn only medians, fine, should have been there already. Is that really all? I ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

I actually really enjoy this drive. I find it very calming. Instead of forcing people off it, is there a way to slow people down?

Re: Planned Parenthood - New Uptown Clinic (1210 Lagoon Ave)

This is now demolished! I drove by it today but couldn't get a photo. Combined with the Arby's block, the Lagoon and Colfax will really feel different.

What’s the new height? They have been building the tower already. I bet they are up to 10-12 floors already.
The trim is for a second tower they had proposed building. I don’t think this is for the tower currently under construction.

Woodbury has more than enough open land to eclipse Plymouth within a decade, but Plymouth also has a ton of industrial prope...

Re: Doors Open Minneapolis event - May 18-19, 2019

I’m going with a friend! On Saturday, we are planning on places near the river, the Hennepin Island Power House and the A Mill Lofts and maybe the post office. I want to check out the Scottish Rite Temple on Sunday.

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

I took the shuttles from the state fair grounds. To me, they took a really circuitous route between there and the stadium. On the way to the stadium, it involved taking the U of M transit way to Energy Park drive, then going to Snelling to cross the railroad tracks. After crossing we took Pierce But...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I like it! Continuing with the movie references, I watched Space Jam for the first time in a while last night and was excited to see Bill Murray represent his part ownership and wear a St. Paul Saints hat at the end of the film.
