Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I want car storage ramps in the center of downtown, especially on 5th, to go away long before the ABC ramps.

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

In an interview on the downtown tower they said The Eleven explicitly was not a reboot of the Edina proposal. They may have been fibbing.

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

The tax productivity of the mall portion is remarkably unimpressive on a tax per acre basis. A lot of high value uses that what it is currently producing. I’m trying to imagine how they’d shave things down. The Hennepin Government Services outpost was just added and they signed a lease for quite a w...

Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Followed a twitter conversation by @happifydesign and @zacharywefel where each expressed sadness that it doesn’t do enough to break away the system that built our segregation. https://twitter.com/happifydesign/status/1071305853167226880 I haven’t seen longer form posts or articles however.

Riverfront, trail adjacent parking ramp... that’s about where my expectation for the North Loop riverfront would rise to.

So rezoning comes next. So does the transportation action plan. What else, and on what timeline?

Re: Edina – General Topics

I’ve had a fantasy that an imagined TH 100 hBRT not connect to downtown Minneapolis but use the Wooddale Station for downtown connections, instead run the hBRT all the way up 100 to Crystal, Robbinsdale, Brooklyn Center, then to the Fridley commuter rail station area.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Is that something covered in Minneapolis’ Transportation Action Plan that follows the Comp 2040? What process needs to happen to get the urban core to start valuing surface parking like the equivalent of the vacant big box store? I’m sure it isn’t like a switch that can just get flipped with one cou...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

An advantage of this being a commuter LRT is a reduced demand for land use downtown be reserved for workday car storage. That high priced land can be a higher use while the workday car storage land use is relocated out to the cheaper suburbs.

In theory.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Is the giant park & ride at Beltline Station still a part of the plan? It is. But like the park and ride already built at the Downtown Hopkins station (it is inside The Moline) it is being designed to not just be single use. This park and ride and at The Moline are to also serve as parking for the ...
