Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

This location (unlike the Longfellow Grill location), poses a distinct safety risk in that it is anchored by a bar. People who have been drinking are more prone to behave in unlawful and unsafe ways. I am supportive of the development, and would like the design of the large building to undergo a Cr...

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

Okay so I'm all for green space and more parks in Minneapolis, but why here? It's backyard is green space, so is across the street, etc. Can't we just put in like a 1 story commercial building there with 4 bays? Parking in the back if needed? This area is dense enough that I want to see more retail...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

6. At the northeast corner of the site (University and Pascal) the Master Plan clearly calls for a 42,000 sq ft grocery store to anchor 310 apartment units, which would be ideal for HyVee. That is much smaller than the large format HyVee has been pursuing in the Twin Cities thus far (upwards of 90,...

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium in Minneapolis

Signing players (Kaka) past their prime was something the NASL (Pele) was prone to do as well. Its also what the Premier League did in the 80s and 90s when Italy's Seria A was the top league in the world. Where is the Premier League now? Didn't you just cite it above as an example of "real competit...

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium in Minneapolis

EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, hell even MX Liga are great soccer leagues that offer real competition between teams. The MLS on the otherhand it a contrived poser, American soccer fans deserve better. This is laughable. The "real competition" in the European leagues is which of the two or three...

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

The Mls television ratings are comparable to the wnba and their new "big buck" television contract is puny compared to league payroll. The nfl brings in over $6 billion in television and their payroll is under $4.5 billion. Under the new television deal The MLS will bring in 90 million with a payro...

Re: Thresher Square Hotel & Apartments - Washington & Chicag

Despite the comments, I would not be surprised if did end up being a Trader Joes. Its hard to tell from the article if the Sherman rep specifically denied it was going to be Trader Joes, or merely gave the non-committal statement about the site being larger than a typical Trader Joe's footprint.
