Re: The Capp - 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use

Per Minneapolis PropertyInfo for 3939 46th St. E., there's an excavation permit from January 19, 2018 saying "PROPERTY TO BE DEMOED BY FRATTALONE". I thought demolition had its own type of permit; perhaps I'm interpreting "demoed" incorrectly.

Re: Hi-Lake and Minnehaha Mall Area (Target, Cub, etc.)

According to Hennepin County Property Info for 3036 Minnehaha there's one owner for eight lots on that side of the block and two across the alley, though there's a mix of Minneapolis (including "Crop Top LLC", LOL) and Iowa City, IA addresses. It looks like they've owned some of them for a long time...

Re: Samatar Crossing (former 5th Street exit / bridge over I-94)

The plan at http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups ... 173843.pdf really makes me wonder why a "low use road" would ever need a northbound turn lane, let alone one that is hundreds of feet long.

Re: Maintaining old houses

Sacrelicio, how'd the window refurb go? Our house is from 1915 and some of the windows could really use some help, so I'm interested in your results.

Re: Minneapolis Fiber Internet and Cable Services

Also, I'll note that we had the in-home install done earlier this week on Lyndale. The technician was very professional and accommodating considering the mess our place is in during a kitchen remodel. My folks are having the same install next Friday, so it is nice they'll be in good hands. We have p...

Re: "Desire Paths": Greatest Hits Collection in MN

I don't think I've seen it mentioned yet. The connection of the Cedar Lake Trail to Cedar Lake Road just south of the West End in St Louis Park. There are about 4-5 desire paths on either side of Hwy 100. The approved path is to go up and around on the bridge. https://goo.gl/maps/gBtxG https://goo....

Re: Guerrilla Urbanism

It looks as thought NYC has some pretty stringent bike rack rules, but there is a process: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/bicycl ... king.shtml

Their process might've changed since the video too though.
