Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

They start paying rent in September which is why MPS is going to move in November during Thanksgiving break rather than waiting for winter break and paying that extra month and a half of rent

Re: Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Districts

Municipalities in Minnesota have no way to levy additional property taxes on certain areas. The total tax capacity of the city is calculated by state formulas, all the city or anyone can do is set their tax capacity rate which applies to the whole city.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Would have been a nice touch to include the City Hall clock tower and incorporate the actual clock.

Re: MSP Airport

Well that's weird, there's still a line on their map for that route, but it could also be a line connecting us with Baltimore that happens to pass exactly through the Chicago dot on the map.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Anybody know where dirt that is piling up east of Hiawatha and south of Lake St. is coming from? My guess is the new apartment being constructed on the west side of Hiawatha, south of the new office building on Lake. Nope, there wasn't any excavation for that apartment because they're using undergr...

Re: Freight Rail News and Happenings

It's paid for by whoever owns the road that crosses the railroad, the railroad doesn't pay anything. At least that's the case with all the crossings on the freight rail along Hiawatha.

Re: Denver

It was much warmer when I visited around this time of year 3 years ago, and there was plenty of activity on the Mall. But off the Mall the activity dies down a bit.

Re: The Link at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

I'm guessing the property owner has some say in it. For example Menards on University Ave has a University Ave address despite facing Prior Ave and all the entrances being on Prior Ave, save one staircase up from University Ave.

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

I'm sure my building, 2221, has been on that list for years as well, and in fact is probably getting some renovation in the coming months to accommodate a new department.

Maybe he's like me and hates the generalization that ABRT is on the same level as LRT.
An assertion that nobody has made ever?

Meanwhile the pisswater excuse for BRT, the Red Line, continues to carry the same network branding as LRT.

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Arterial Rapid Bus

Last one I went to the "ground" to break was actually a parking lot but I don't know, put Peter McGlaughlin in a backhoe and have him push the button rather than this stupid shovel thing. Also isn't McGlaughlin kind of ambivalent to a little hostile to the concept of rapid bus? What the hell is he d...

Re: Southside - General Topics

They say their current office space is underutilized because they don't have enough parking, so this new parking will enable them to fill their existing space.

Re: Autonomous vehicles impact on real estate

Yeah doing a find/replace driver with driverless in our current system would not be great, but I think collectively there's a bit more imagination behind the problem than that.

Re: Autonomous vehicles impact on real estate

Labor is the highest cost for providing transit service, I think there's a lot of opportunity for driver-less bus services.
