Re: Fridley - Columbia Heights - Spring Lake Park

There is a significant grade difference between Central and that parking lot, but that's just one of many reasons why they would never front Central with the store. No grocery store will want a front and back entrance to their space; it creates a security nightmare. This means that you would just h...

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

It's going to be very interesting to see how Rosedale is going to make the entire perimeter walkable for pedestrians. I have no idea how those people in the luxury apartments are going to be able to easily get across Fairview unless a significant amount of new sidewalks and improved crossings are pu...

Re: Fridley - Columbia Heights - Spring Lake Park

It seems that the only way Alatus can pull off any project is with heavy duty subsidies. $43 million for a six story apartment building with city hall on the main floor sounds like nearly half the cost of the building. It will be interesting to see if Columbia Heights can actually get Alatus to fol...

Re: Widening of Snelling Ave?

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

Thoughts after reading that article: Would now be a good time to bring up the topic of the pedestrian bridge again, from those apartments/condos south of 36 over to Rosedale's new lifestyle center? It seems like the perfect place to put a piece of infrastructure like that if they want to make this c...

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

So unfortunate there is no plan to coordinate the breakup of this megablock here. Does Roseville WANT it? As a Roseville resident, I can't say that I want this. Then again, I'm not in the proper age group to benefit from 55+ housing. I could care less about more retail showing up over there, especi...

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

It looks like MN-DOT is considering permanent changes to Snelling Ave between County Rd C and 694 in Roseville and Arden Hills. They want to take away access to a couple of non-signalized intersections along the corridor and install a cable median barrier down the middle of the highway. The below do...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

Quick note: The redesigned 8th St SE between 15th Ave SE and Central, especially the segment between 15th Ave SE and 10th Ave SE, feels so much more inviting to interact with and cross as a pedestrian than it did a year ago. The parking lane on the south (eastbound) side of the road was removed, al...

Re: Cedar/Minnehaha/Franklin Intersection

This project slightly increases the distance be...
