Re: Bike Shopping

I really appreciate my studded tires. It's possible to do without them but I appreciate the stability and peace of mind. You will lose some speed, but looking at my Strava data, I'm only about 20% slower on studded tires (even with a different, much more upright/relaxed bike) than on my summer bikes...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Normally I wouldn't like the prospect of another skyway over Nicollet Mall, especially here since it would further interfere with the 20 Washington vista. But I do like the proposed public skyway access.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Ave Development & RR Corridor/Grain Elevators

While I like seeing this greenway concept in all of the drawings, how to greenway planners see this crossing busy streets such as 46th St? The Oppidan project (Cub) includes a new stoplight at Snelling, right? Therefore I can't imagine Hennepin County having an appetite for a signalized crosswalk a...

Re: Hennepin County Commissioner Districts 2,3,4 (2018)

how she would get the votes to do it, etc. This is my question as well. I like Angela a lot (and would probably vote for her if I lived in her district), but is McLaughlin actively opposed to funding these lines if the votes were there? Even if you had 4 votes, you'd really want 5 or 6 (obviously e...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Considering the stadium was built at McGuire's considerable expense for a soccer team that doesn't make a ton of money, I don't see how the venture pencils out if the surrounding land stays parking lots.

Lasalle is excellent news. Is it the full missing link from Grant to Franklin? Just a few years ago the protected bikeway analysis said "lane removal is not feasible."

Re: Ford Plant Redevelopment - Highland Park

The north side of Ford Pkwy is (ridiculously) only T2, which pretty sharply limits what could be built there (generally a 35' height limit, max 3.0 FAR with structured parking, etc.). The Finn made it work anyway, but they're the exception for sure. T3 nodes like Snelling/St. Clair have seen more in...

Re: Fantasy maps

I think the 54 Extension is still needed for White Bear Ave in the Greater East Side. The proposed 82 is okay, but it would make that area feel very isolated from Payne-Phalen and especially downtown.
