Re: Future Cars: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

I wholeheartedly agree. I think it's the first big step towards AV. We will need a more robust transit system to make it work though. It will work well in Oslo right now.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

I don't know. This was a somewhat bad project to begin with. Definitely need more retail space on their ground floor. The massing was just a big too bulky? Northeast could benefit from a Lander project to show how to fit density and active space into the neighborhood adequately. I also think we need...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

I used to volunteer there and there was definitely an unsafe and hostile feeling there and around the building So the one in Uptown closed. Look I went here when I was fresh 18 just graduated from a high school in the burbs. It did not feel hostile to me. Unsafe? Maybe? Are you associated with the ...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Mill & Overlay began today on University Ave. Keep an eye on this as they try to keep promises. Other roads that are getting restriping soon are 10th Ave SE and 15th Ave SE. Those should be following these layouts 10th Ave: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@publicworks/documents/images...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

That explains my Uff Da. How high do you think Nicollet is in crime? It's such a Minnesota view on danger and crime. A company based in the bay area of California isn't going to care that there are maybe 10-20 homeless people on or near Nicollet.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

I would be 0% mad if the Apple store bailed on Uptown for a Nicollet Mall location. Nicollet is the right place for an Apple store if we’re only going to have one in the city (both would be fine too) While it would make sense in some ways, there's no way they would put one there due to the loss pre...

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

Mac's is moving onto 310 E Hennepin!

Wonder what's happening with the Union building. There were rumors of redevelopment last year. Same with the Aveda site.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Apparently there will not be a second phase. Or at least not another tower as part of a second phase. Wanninger said that the air rights above the Padilla building have been assigned to the future homeowners. That prevents another developer from tearing down the Padilla building to build another ta...

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N (Cancelled)

I'm bothered by the lack of any interest in the southeastern portion of the site. The two story building at 508 Washington is a pretty ordinary structure, is it worth preserving? The surface parking lot at the corner is certainly not worth preserving. Why not redevelop those two parcels to a much g...

Re: Nicollet 301 - 20 stories - ~200'(?)

Just noticed the other day that the skyway access is redundant too since they just built this floor plan at 365 Nicollet To add, they claimed 365 is having a difficult time finding a "destination restaurant" to fill this large space. So why would you want 2 large scale destination restaurants on you...
