Re: OX-OP Gallery and Residences.

It says the 11th St Bikeway will be replacing the bollards with an actual curb this summer. Was that known? Are there visuals of that?

Re: Nicollet Ave Apartments.

5 retail bays, including three under 1,000 sq. ft. That will be a nice addition on that stretch.

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

Yeah, fair. But there are also like 2 blocks x 7 blocks of houses total between Bloomington and 28th Ave south of 46th. So there's not a lot of people to serve.

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

There is way lower density (jobs+population) on Cedar than on Nicollet. And the parts of Cedar with a high density are north of Lake, which are between 0-6 blocks of the light rail. South of Lake Nicollet is still much denser than Cedar, and south of 42nd the density on Cedar falls off a cliff. 15 m...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

For cars going north on 35W heading to west 94, are they going to be able to weave all the way over to the Lyndale/Hennepin exit? If so, that seems like it'll be a mess. But maybe that is a smaller percentage of traffic than I think. I also didn't realize there would be an offramp from 35W North to ...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

Is there something behind the scenes here? This is some vindictive stuff, which makes it seem like they have a particular reason to spite Alatus, or whoever. They know they can't win, and yet they continue to throw a lot of money at it just to temporarily delay and add cost to the project.

Re: U.S. Highway 169

I was speaking of the segment from 62 to downtown. It is mixed traffic, but they have center stations. Downtown they'll share the road with all of the other buses, which really slows things down in the afternoon in combination with the lights. And to Silophant, if the MNPass lanes keep working as th...

Re: U.S. Highway 169

The Orange Line will be LRT on rubber tires for about 6 miles, with 2 stops along that section. Not nothing (that is the length of Midtown LRT if it went from River to West Lake), but not that great either (imagine if Midtown only had two stops, at Lyndale and Hiawatha, and bicycles could use the la...

Re: Nicollet Mall

The downside is it conditions people to just cross at a red light, because it is obvious no one else is moving (plus there is only one lane of car traffic in one direction).

Are they the typical 3-stemmed native paper birch, or the supposedly more city-tolerant single-stemmed (Asian? Hybrid?) birch? (Veering completely off topic)
They are multi-stemmed. I think they look quite nice, so hopefully they survive the salt.

Re: Hennepin Avenue Reconstruction / E Line (Uptown to Downtown)

Would Hennepin really be the best street in south Minneapolis to take car-free? Seems like you could make a pretty strong case for Nicollet instead, between the Mall and the whole Kmart thing. This would be so much easier, as it has a freeway one block over (Blaisdell), and another freeway a few bl...
