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.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/vancouver-public-transit-frequency-proximity-study-2019 I found this link on skyscrapercity. While about Vancouver, Minneapolis appears in all the various charts. While there is always room for improvement, it’s nice to see that we, comparatively, do fairly well for ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I remember when it was loudly bemoaned downtown lacked a grocery store. Now there are ... four? I bet even more could survive. By my count, we have 4: Trader Joes Lunds Target Whole Foods Only Lunds and Whole Paycheck are full service. I'd reckon that there is capacity for another full service groc...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

In a better world the Green Line would've been a subway, but this world isn't exactly great. This one accident does show we need to keep an eye on the LRT operators, but the majority of collisions are people not respecting the signal. No amount of signals, signage, bells, and horns can stop idiocy....

Re: Interstate 94

Thanks for the response Tmart. You cleared up my confusion. I appreciate it. I asked because, checking all the history of harm to poor neighborhoods and neighborhoods where most residents identify as people of color, I, strangely enough don’t think I ever considered I-94 and 35W as built for through...

Re: Interstate 94

The slide on travel patterns is interesting. Given that trips are short, including many downtown-to-downtown, and drivers have a strong preference for other routes when using as a bypass, it seems like a grade-separated motorway is pretty poorly-suited to the corridor and isn't very successful in i...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

When what little train transit we do have includes a direct line from the airport to downtown a couple of blocks away, and leading cities worldwide are slowly choking cars out of their densest downtown areas, a porte cochère sounds as anachronistic as a typewriter or 8-track stereo. I don’t intend ...
