Re: Beltline Station Area – St. Louis Park

I don't think that type of store is in Hyvee's portfolio. They're all giant warehouse types. The Sam's Club property seems more of a fit for Hyvee.

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Dress Barn is closing all of its stores, seems unlikely that it's connected to rent.

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

Speaking for myself, the retail at West End doesn't create much of a destination district. My wife isn't drawn to much there either, but she works and shops downtown. Creating a successful retail district also requires... successful retail. It seems better designed as an entertainment district, but ...

Re: Hopkins - General Topics

Unless I'm reading this wrong, it's as follows: 25 seats / 3 = 8.333333 spaces 960 sq ft / 250 = 3.84 spaces Gross requirement = 12.17 spaces - 2 on-street space credits - 1 bike rack credit - 2 transit stop proximity credits Net requirement = 7.17 spaces. So which way does the city round? I'm guess...

Anyone heard anything on the old Sam's Club? That seems like a prime property as well.

Re: Wooddale Station Area / PLACE Proposal - St. Louis Park

Just messaged SLP about the Via (Place) development, as not much has happened over the summer. City Staff met with the PLACE team earlier this week, and they are still on track for the development. The Federal Tax Bill that was passed at the end of 2017 caused a hiccup in their financing for the pro...

Re: Wooddale Station Area / PLACE Proposal - St. Louis Park

According to someone in the SLP planning department, demolition should start in the next couple days. There were "delays" in PLACE getting started. They have had discussions about what happens if the SWLRT improvements are delayed/dropped, and there is some interest in making improvements to the bik...

Re: Wooddale Station Area / PLACE Proposal - St. Louis Park

Still no progress on the site. Some survey markers were put up, but no demolition activity. My big question is around the traffic plan. The traffic mitigation plan for this site was dependent on the SWLRT improvements being made to the Wooddale / Hwy 7 / 36th St / bike trail intersections. With SWLR...

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

Anyone know what's going in on the southwest corner of West End? Some banners said something about an arcade, gasthaus, and craft beers.

Re: MN Highway 100

The Hwy 100 lane reduction is supposed to last into "mid-November". We'll see!
I'm excited for traffic to return to normal... at least until January.

Re: PLACE Proposal / Wooddale Station area - St. Louis Park

With the outlook for SWLRT not looking clear, this has to change the scope of the PLACE development. All of the traffic plans for PLACE have dependency on SWLRT-Woodale intersection improvements being made. I don't know how much breath-holding is going on, but I wonder how this could change the site...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Just wondering if anyone else has ever thought the illegal rail crossing at Hwy 100 on the Cedar Lake Trail needs a legal and safe way to cross. https://www.google.com/maps/@44.9620828,-93.3445264,615m/data=!3m1!1e3 They put up some new fencing along the tracks, but it's still easily crossed.

Re: Bicycle design and innovations

I have full fenders on most of my bikes and hang them from their front wheel in my garage, much like they hang in the trains. I've never had an issue with the fender being bent or whatnot. My fenders are plastic (poly-somethingsomething) with aluminum cores. They can be twisted into all sorts of sha...

Re: MN Highway 100

Incidentally, the Marathon station kitty-corner was completely unprepared for the Holiday to close, and their shelves have been picked almost clean. That Marathon station has never been stocked and looked like it was about to close at any time in the last five years. Hopefully they stock up and cle...

Holiday Gas Station - 100 and Minnetonka Blvd

Does anyone know why the Holiday gas station at Highway 100 and Minnetonka closed? That place was always busy, and now were just left with that shady Marathon gas station across the street. I'm guessing it might be related to the Hwy 100 project, but I don't remember seeing that as part of it.
