Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

I'm intrigued by the stump sidewalks. Seems clear intent to complete it all the way up Valley View to 66th. That France Ave sidewalk zigzag is also a clear intent on a better sidewalk future. I hope the city feels a sense of shame at keeping that stupid porkchop turn. BoA first tried to put their bu...

Re: Think tank launches campaign to build more lanes, blames investments in public transit and bike infrastructure

Argh. Randall O'Toole is his own cottage industry of tickling a certain pleasure spot of the political right that wants the status quo tragedy of the commons highway planning to continue like it never has maintenance costs.

Pentagon Park (Hwy 100 & Industrial Blvd) - Edina

With the office market limp, and residential in very high demand, the Pentagon Park redevelopment switching to heavily residential.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I had no idea there were two "Gateway Parks" in downtown Minneapolis.

Or at lest this dog park group says so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

http://www.doggrounds.com/

Are there more Gateway Parks around that @MPD6thPrecinct should be aware of?

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

A 111-unit hotel and 150-unit apartment proposed for the former-Santorini site.

Since it is adjacent to the office tower at 169 and 394, why so short here?

Re: Eden Prairie - General Topics

I heard back Aprilish there was a TOD proposal on a lot near SW Station coming for 200ish units with maybe 15% affordable replacing vacant buildings. This sounds like it.

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

They narrowed lanes in order to create sidewalks. Some porkchop turns were removed.

I had more than a few old timers telling me those actual numbers don't matter, what they feel traffic is today is worse than what their memories tell them.

Re: Hopkins - General Topics

Hopkins signed an agreement with Artspace to team up and search for places to redevelop into artist housing in the city.

Does Artspace build new construction or mostly remodel existing?

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

I would say this is the "Amazon Effect" on the arterials around our malls.

In 2000 traffic on the north end of France was 31,000 but at the south end near 494 was 29,000. Today traffic around Southdale Center is ... oh just rechecked 22,000 but at the south end near 494 its over 28,000 cars.

3D Apple Maps

The Flyover Mode looks like it got a refresh of 3D models for Minneapolis, like truly recent. Right in time to have it be accurate for the Super Bowl? Until this week it still was showing a six year old 3D model of the city that still had the Metrodome. I'm chuckling that Flyover Mode shows the Well...

Re: Former Dayton's Building

How can their ownership of a trademark prevent the public from calling a historic landmark (which they now sold off) by its historic name? My mom still calls it the Dayton's building to this day. Telling her "There's no longer a Dayton's there" she'll just tell you "There's no Macy's there either." ...
