Poor planning with Fairview closed, Hamline down a lane, and Lexington still having work finalized.
And yet, life goes on.

Re: Northside - General Topics

They are owned by the HRA, but there has not been great developer interest for what the HRA wants built.

Re: E Line Arterial BRT

This always seemed like the inevitable alignment for the line. There was no way they would build this and not serve the growth in downtown Linden Hills. Will they make transit only lanes for this line? I could see a big benefit of true transit only lanes on University/4th and Henn. Not only for the ...

Re: Midtown Greenway Trail [not the transit thread]

The ROW is much wider than it appears (check it out in Ramsey's property map ) but the rail is centered in the ROW. East of Cleveland, a Greenway extension might require rebuilding the northernmost track to serve as a new main line and help buffer the southernmost track (converted to trail) from the...

Re: Midtown Greenway Trail [not the transit thread]

On the plus side, it is (compared to the Lake Street bridge and Marshall) super flat.

That's interesting. They had originally said that they would be preparing site plans for each one to be approved by the city (or cities).

Re: Bike Share

I've seen a lot of green Nice Rides left around St. Paul this year. I wonder if the dockless system has conditioned people to forget to dock them?

Re: Ayd Mill Road

And lastly, just an observation as someone who has cruised up Ayd Mill my share of times, cutting the road down to two lanes would leave a ton of space in that corridor. Frankly there’s more than enough space to add a wide pathway now, without removing the road, if we really wanted to. So there’s p...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I always thought that antenna structure added a lot to that building. Unfortunate that they're going, especially since the building's original form was already compromised by the addition.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

One or the other ramp (probably the non-loop ramp) will probably be the bike/ped access from Jefferson to the trail. All of the ramps will have to be re-engineered for the project.

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

The transit corridor is University (to the east) and that strip on 13th east of University is pretty prominent, so I'm not bothered by that decision.

Re: Renaissance Square / The Andrus

It's not a question of whether it could function, because obviously a very motivated person could operate a restaurant in there if they were willing. It's a question of whether any restaurant would choose the space given the abundance of other large restaurant spaces (both on the Mall and elsewhere)...

The Hennepin property map has aerial imagery from about every two years dating back to 2000: https://gis.hennepin.us/Property/map/de ... ,0,0,0,0,0

For older aerials, use MHAPO: https://apps.lib.umn.edu/mhapo/

Aveda has two buildings at 4th/Central, the former Cataract Masonic Temple (101 4th St SE, not protected but listed as eligible) and the two characterless one-two story commercial buildings across the street at 326 Central.

Right. Odds are that connection exists to allow maintenance, not general use.
