Re: Hennepin & Lyndale Bottleneck Project

In general I like the idea of reconstruction. I see that the Majority of it will be built with federal funding. What bothers me is how the remaining reconstruction costs will be paid for by adjacent property owners. With Minneapolis having such high property taxes you would think that the policy of ...

If I'm going to be honest those prices are 80% of the cost of equivalent apartments in NYC.

Re: Junction Flats - (643 Fifth Street North)

The way the developers in Minneapolis do brick veneer sheets is cheap and disgusting. They don't use interlocking panels, which are readily available. Instead every 5 feet you have a straight seam in the brick that runs the entire height of the bricked area. If they're wanting to show off their qual...

Re: 26th / 28th Streets in South Minneapolis

I think one of the main reason for these streets being two way are the hospitals. Putting that aside however my Idea would be to: Return 26th to two way traffic. Leave 28th street one way, but reverse it's direction to west bound Change 31st street to one way going east bound. This makes these roads...

Re: Does Minneapolis have too many stoplights?

I strongly agree that the River Road/Franklin/27th intersection was better with stop signs, though I did go through on my bicycle one time and was pretty much ignored by the cars who apparently weren't expecting me at all. There is a certain advantage to lights when there's non-automotive traffic i...

Re: Minnehaha Ave - Longfellow Area

Well honestly to me the answer seems simple. Put a raised median in the middle of the road with a two way bike lane in it. Then have signal protected left turns turns so that nobody can turn left while the bikes have the green. I've actually seen this in NYC and it worked well. Something like this. ...

Re: 2700 Hennepin Ave S

Drive through or not, that curb cut on Hennepin is bad news. It better friggin be Right-in, Right-out ONLY. We do not need people taking lefts in or out of that mess. I agree. I would just make the parking area one way. You enter on Hennepin and exit on 27th. And it has the added benefit of shrinki...

Re: I-35W/I-94 Commons

I find it repulsive that we as a state can't find the money to replace 50 year old infrastructure. The replacement for this tunnel should have had a fund set aside for since it was built so that when the time came for its eventual replacement the money was already there. Just imagine how much cheape...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

Anyway my point still stands. Just like I said they can run free shuttle service to the stadium on game days from to and from the ABC ramps. There is no reason for all of that land sitting around as a parking lot in Downtown. As it stands right now 1/3 of the land area downtown is parking for the Me...

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

Maybe you missed the memo, but the Vikings are building a new stadium in the Metrodome's place that will be there for at least 30 years. (This is assuming that by "raising" the Metrodome you actually meant "razing") Yes I meant razing which you absolutely knew before trying to be a prick. Pardon me...

Re: Loring Vue Apartments - (415 Oak Grove Street)

Am I the only one that HATES seeing seams in the brick fascade where there should really be none if it were real brick? There has to be a way to integrate the brick fascade without those hideous seams that let you know from afar that this building was made cheaply.

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

We are about to witness the revitalization of DTE. This is what I think it needs to become fully developed. Downtown in general needs better road access to the outside communities and freeways. It is basically blocked by freeways on all sides. More freeway crossings would help. This would be no easy...

Come on. What is with this fake brick crap? You know we had brick buildings in the 1800's. Why would any developer want to make their building look like it was built 130 years ago? This is horrible.
