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/

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

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.

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

Kellogg Mall/Boulevard was built in the 1930s (completed 1936) based on plans dating back a couple decades prior. The amount of Kellogg that is viaduct varies pretty substantially, and even a lot of what is viaduct is built onto the carved-away bluff such that it doesn't actually reach the level whe...

Re: Iron Store - 528 Washington Ave N (Cancelled)

I'm bothered by the lack of any interest in the southeastern portion of the site. The two story building at 508 Washington is a pretty ordinary structure, is it worth preserving? The surface parking lot at the corner is certainly not worth preserving. Why not redevelop those two parcels to a much g...

Re: Northside - General Topics

There has been a pretty significant price premium in Harrison for a while now. I bet the average home goes for $30-40k more than on the other side of Olson, and very few seem to enter the market.

Don't you think that would make the street a little bit... unpleasant to walk and bike on?

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

Is more developable land really the thing downtown St. Paul needs? Downtown has relatively low developer interest to be sure, but a not-insignificant part of that is awkward or poorly-located sites. The Xcel parking lot is across the street from some of the region's largest shelters. The Central St...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

They are not putting bike lanes on the bridge over Godfrey?! I thought that area was maybe just out of the scope of the road reconstruction, hence nothing shown there. I’m pretty sure the current sidewalk on the side of the bridge is wide enough to to accommodate both a pedestrian and bike trail. N...

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

The land lid is also about expanding the developable area on the site. Realigning Shepard away from the river and expanding that riverfront space does not accomplish this.
