Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

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: Sears Redevelopment

CAAPB is very interested in building a denser and more vibrant campus around the State Capitol. They are surprisingly progressive.

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...

Ouch. No midday service at all on St. Clair? It's nearly a full mile between Randolph and Grand.

Re: Bike Share

The hubs were part of NiceRide/Motivate's proposal well before they went to the city. They are (for some reason) very attached to it.

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.

Re: 2012 4th St SE

I'd always assumed that blue building (2014? 4th St SE) was protected in the fraternity historic district. D'oh, *1214 4th St SE. Once home of Alpha Kappa Phi, which quickly became Phi Kappa Sigma. Built 1884. It's talked about in the designation study for the district, but I don't have access to t...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 18-20 stories

They should add another floor at least on the Washington/Hennepin corner. Two stories there is just too small to fit in.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

I think the Red Line would look much less like a failure if it went through to downtown Minneapolis. Especially along Cedar Ave, with a dedicated busway along most of the route.

It would take more than just removing the dams. The post-dam sediment layer on some of those cross sections is pretty thick.

Re: Hopkins - General Topics

It seems strange to me that the area near Meadowbrook is zoned "Suburban" when it has a traditional street grid and strong current/future transit connectivity. The Transportation section feels a little bit pulled in two directions. e.g.: "The City of Hopkins is near full development and has nearly a...
