Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

I think this is accurate for Calhoun Square:

It's missing rates for more than an hour but less than 3 hours, but I think for under 2 hours it's $6, based on my transaction history.

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

What's the EPA Tier standard for Northstar's locomotives? They're definitely not Tier 4, but according to the Wikipedia article on this type of locomotive they can be rebuilt to meet Tier 4 standards. I'm sure it's not a high priority, but I wonder if this is something Metro Transit would look into...

Re: What's Your Take On Minneapolis E-Democracy?

I think it has neighborhood specific forums that are very rarely used (I bet NextDoor has taken the wind out of their sales on that front) but the real Cesspool is the Minneapolis Issues forum.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The Upper Midwest of the MS society has left their location in the mill district at 200 12th Ave. S (to 2829 University Ave SE) so this building is now empty. The property including parking lot is about .75 acre, but a bit under 3/4 of the block is a building the UofM appears to be leasing (Universi...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Many companies (my own included) have moved to a flex system as well. Unless you are in the office 18+ days per month, you do NOT get an assigned cube/office and must reserve a cube/office every time you go in. Many more people are working from home 3, 4, or 5 days per week. This has resulted in a ...

Re: Richfield - General Topics - 66th Street

Isn't wythe vs thin brick the result of the expansion contraction discussed earlier? For maybe 4 stories or so the difference in expansion and contraction between wood and brick is the same so you can use full brick, but any taller than that and you switch to veneer? Or do you switch to veneer at th...

Re: Richfield - General Topics - 66th Street

I've heard they're basically tiles: like a brick with a 1/2" or 1/"4 veneer shaved off (no idea how they're actually manufactured) and so you've gotta mortar the whole thing and lay them like tiles.

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

To use eminent domain you have to make the original landowner "whole" again which in this case entails buildings a new Kmart building and giving Kmart the same sweetheart lease as they have now, which I'm sure would be insanely expensive. E: Like I said a year and a half ago Making them whole requir...

Re: Grocery Stores

Anyway, does anyone know where I can get Broccolini in the city? The Quarry Rainbow had it when it was a Rainbow, but now that it's a Cub they don't have it. I've looked at Whole Foods, Lunds downtown, and Seward Coop (yes, I went into a coop!) and none of them had it. Tracy's gets it from somewher...

Re: Roof Depot site

So Aquaponics is not growing things in soil, it's like hydroponics (growing stuff directly in water) but there are fish in that water which I guess is better for the plants and good for the fish so overall you're producing more food. So the soil contamination shouldn't be an issue here as long as it...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Look, people are out here with serious faces saying the city is going to steal your land and demolish your house, and that no outreach was done to the public. These aren't the kinds of things you can have opinions on, these are falsifiable facts. The 2040 debate has clearly gone off the rails becaus...

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

I don't remember whose policy it is (maybe the city) but because those promenades are not publicly owned, they don't want curb cuts because it might give people the impression that they can use them? Like it's wild and incredibly dumb but I've been told that's what the city wants.
