Re: Major League Soccer Stadium in Minneapolis

And if it was anyone other than David I wouldn't be so snarky, but for literally years he's been saying "Talk to northsiders they want this" and basically ignoring all other arguments in favor of that one crutch. My home is on the Northside of Mpls and I certainly do not care about SWLRT or having ...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Dream idea (which might hurt the price rather than help, but I'm not sure: The line currently turns in a U shape around the trash burning facility. We use the current line there, but add a bridge up to 10th St which is already a lower use road. It then turns down Lasalle, another low traffic road, ...

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium in Minneapolis

St. Paul can have it. It would be nice to see more on that side of the river anyway. Maybe somewhere near the Green line if space is available. The strib editorial I read mentioned north Minneapolis and how this part of downtown being redeveloped could help revitalize that part of the city. http://w...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Not a huge contributor to this site, but I do check it out almost on a daily basis. I love light rail and infrastructure projects that benefit our area and make the Twin Cities more livable and easy to navigate. This project has never been a favorite of mine and it's possible cancellation makes me h...

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium in Minneapolis

I guess I'm curious as to why this needs to be in Minneapolis. We already have the Vikings, Twins, and the Timberwolves. Why do we need this as well ? My vote last time around did not go to Mayor Hodges, but I support her on this stadium issue. As far as this area goes, who cares if its kind of indu...

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

It would make more sense to me to have the hotel on the park side of the building which would give hotel guest's a better view. If this is behind the east tower, which I think it is, they would be looking at the homeless shelter across the street. Not trying to knock the shelter, because it serves a...

Thank you for the video.
I drove past this project today, and the more the façade goes up, the more I really like it.

Thanks for the pics Drag. I really like this project and can't wait to see the finished product. The mod look of it is so different from what we have seen lately, and I think it will add greatly to the area. Off topic, but how exactly does a crane lift itself ? I've tried to find info online and am ...

Re: Holiday Inn Express - 317 Second Avenue S

This is going to help round out our lodging options in Mpls. I love that this hotel is using an underutilized building, and will bring more traffic to that area. My hometown is development central right now. I love it !!! :D

Re: Portland Tower - 516 S. 8th St.

I agree that the color the selected in this new rendering makes this tower a little monotonous. It seems they were at two ends of the spectrum here. With the horizontal cladding they had something that seemed out of place but with the new gray material it seems a little boring. Overall, the new ren...

Yes, I mean the version that was torn down, with much glee by our city leaders at the time. I never felt unsafe there, ever.
