Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I'm pretty sure the people at U.S. Bank Stadium would rather have the CFP National Championship game, rather than have a bowl that might not have a B1G team available. Thats understandable. I figure we could do both though. Would having an earlier bowl eliminate the chance to host the CFP national ...

Re: 1724-1728 Nicollet

I don't think it would - 94 is about 15 feet below grade here, so the exit would be from the basement level below the sidewalk. A bigger issue would be the expense of several-hundred-foot acceleration/deceleration ramps, even ignoring MnDOTs presumed resistance. I really like the idea of physically...

Re: 1724-1728 Nicollet

This is an outside-of-the-box idea, but, instead of a street curb cut, would it be possible to put the garage entrance directly from I-94? It sounds bonkers, but it could be an interesting amenity that would free up street front space and provide a unique amenity to those in the building.

I had no idea about Lake Blaisedell. That’s facinating, especially since I live on the site.

Re: Duluth Residential Tower (15 stories)

While I like to see increased density, I’m kind of bummed. While I can’t speak for the inside, or the management, I actually really like the Voyageur’s external esthetic. It reminds me of those 1950’s-60’s motels on the Jersey shore.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Is there any information on the affect of nicerides, lime bikes, or lime/bird scooters on local bus-route usage? I know people using Lyft/Uber in affecting ridership, I’d be curious if these other methods affect it as well, especially in the warmer months. I may be alone in this, but I know that my ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

This bums me out. To be honest though, I haven’t seen much different between this and the southwest journal for a couple years. Has anyone else? I wonder if they could just combine the news for both under one banner?

Here is a Minnesota Business Magazine article on growing Northstar ridership. It claims that weekday ridership on the line topped 3000/day in June.

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

I understand the desire for retail on Hennepin and Washington, but I actually like the idea of extending that linear plaza/park that runs from the river along the east side of Hennepin. I think it would help draw people from Nicollet to the river and vice versa.

Just for fun (?), I made some maps of destinations from MSP on Great Circle Mapper. Data comes from wikipedia . Some destinations are seasonal, less than daily, etc... Here are flights outside the Lower 48 states, including future service and the not-100%-sure-thing service to Shanghai: http://www....
