Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 36 stories / ~400'(?)

Shouldn't the private street that serves T3 and Dock Street (which presumably should be called Dock Street) become a real street that eventually elevates and reconnects with 5th Street? T3 currently has a Washington Avenue address, which seems... dumb.

Re: Louisiana Station Area

The article notes that the site has a high water table and contaminated soils that were capped underneath the Sam's Club, both of which will limit options for whatever is redeveloped on the site.

I forgot about the Ford Dam. If they removed the dams, I hope we'll be able to get more ppl on the river.
If they remove the Ford Dam, there will be rapids which would make the river unnavigable.

They must have changed the caption, because it didn't say that before.

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

The rendering in the article must be the old plan, right? Because it seems to show an 11 or 12 story building.

Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

City importance is a pretty subjective thing, obviously, but I think one of the more useful sources is the Associated Press's list of domestic cities that can stand alone in a dateline, without their state being specified. Now that I've looked at it, I'm curious if the Columbian inferiority complex...

The Foshay was also converted from (very inefficient) office to hotel.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

I agree that the Park Board shouldn't get into housing, and that we shouldn't be building non-park functions on park land (which is supposed to be a bedrock park board principal that some board members are very casually ignoring), but my biggest issue is this: This particular location is probably th...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Even if the main sections of the viaduct were torn down through the North Loop, I'm thinking that there would still need to be some sort of a viaduct between 5th Ave N and 2nd Ave N. See the 5th Street Viaduct for reasons why.

Edit, what he said.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Speaking of that rendering, does anybody have any idea what the deal is with Target Field's player/VIP parking area southwest of the ballpark (to the right of that image)? My recollection was that the team had rights (and maybe on obligation) to develop that land. Does that ring a bell with anybody?

Re: Foundry Mixed-Use Development - 115-125 1st St N, 128 2nd St N, 128 1st Av N

You're right about the proximity of the C Ramp -- I have to admit that's a blind spot on my part, but perhaps telling in that in all of the times I've visited this area, it's never once occurred to me that I would park there. But it feels very far removed from the core of the area bounded by Washing...

Yes, the meter rates could probably stand to be increased, but the facts on the ground are pretty clear that there are, in fact, not enough parking spots in the immediate area to support the burgeoning regional retail, dining, and entertainment hotspot that the area is becoming.

Re: Foundry Mixed-Use Development - 115-125 1st St N, 128 2nd St N, 128 1st Av N

It would be great if someone would come up with an appropriate way to dress the two exposed ends of the parking ramp. Tearing it down completely and building buildings at both ends would do the trick. There's currently a waiting list to get contract parking in that ramp, so probably not going to te...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

I think we may have discussed this in the Gateway thread, but wasn't the theory that the number of available parking spaces was perhaps driving the number of condos? The footprint of the underground parking and the depth of bedrock puts a hard cap on the number of parking spaces available. They had ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

The fact that people on both sides of the discussion are up in arms is probably an indication that they've found a reasonable compromise.
