Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Disappointing that there are no plans to change that congested nightmare of a skyway corridor. Also, "the forthcoming renovation of The Dayton’s Project which will add several hundred thousand square feet of class B office space." I'm not clear on what exactly the differences are between Class A and...

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

That's true. Man, what if we had some sort of shared space running between those two areas, up at ground level and, like, just a block north of Lake?

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

And if they feel they must test it on a bike path, because they can't possibly inconvenience cars (I mean, it's Hennepin County), why not one of the dual-path sections of the Cedar Lake or Kenilworth Trails? Then they could at least just closed one path and have two-way traffic on the other.

As for the B Line, the original presentation announcing it showed it as extending down Marshall all the way to Snelling.

Re: C Line - Arterial Rapid Bus & Penn Ave Community Works Project

I'm pretty sure it's referring to the 10 remaining corridors from the aBRT study completed in 2012: Snelling (A), Lake (B), Penn (C), Chicago (D), Hennepin (E), Nicollet, Central, American, Robert, and E. 7th. W. 7th was the 11th corridor in the study, but was canned to not conflict with the streetc...

Re: Northside - General Topics

Awesome. There's always going to be a demand for housing where you don't have to share walls with your neighbors, but there's no reason that that has to drop density down to a single unit per 5000 square feet.

The Zoning and Planning committee denied this appeal, so this would appear to be in the clear.

Re: Mall of America Transit Station: Master Plan

The before-it-even-hit-the-CPC cancellation of that 40-story project at 33 S 5th St was also blamed on construction bids coming in way higher than expected.

Re: Woman's Club of Minneapolis Parking Lot (344-410 Oak Grove)

Will the Dunn brothers tower residents fight anything over 4-5 stories? That building is apartments, so the residents are filthy transients who don't get an opinion. ;) More seriously, though, Loring Park hasn't fought tooth and nail against new developments the way certain other neighborhoods have...

Re: 2017-18 MN Legislative Session & Budget - Battle for the Senate Majority?

One thing discussed in the replies to that tweet is that the relatively small leftward swing of SD54 isn't necessarily indicative of what other suburban districts will look like in November. The Republican candidate was the sitting HD54B representative, so he had some amount of incumbency advantage/...

Isn't this being developed by Doran? They're not out of state, even if that wasn't a bullshit reason to be mad about a project.

Re: 2024 Olympic Bid?

Would probably be cheaper to do some extremely heavy earthmoving to reshape Lutsen into what they need, and then just build NLX all the way up there. I know they prefer bigger/actual mountains for the alpine stuff, but do any of the events actually absolutely require more than the 1000' of vertical ...

Re: Alatus Residential Project - 228 South 12th Street (31 stories - 307'/415')

If you look at the bottom of the section cut, ground level is marked 100', so you have to subtract that to get the true height. I'm not sure why architectural drawings do this - to avoid having to use negative numbers for basement levels maybe?

I'll edit the thread title, though.
