Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Interesting story on MNUFC's website about the PTFE exterior.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

The wrap isn't as attractive as the drawings. I hope once it's fully covered it will look different, but so far it looks like the debris mesh covering you see on scaffolding during remodeling jobs.

Re: Arby’s Island

The triangle island in the middle of the intersection and the sidewalk along the building could use some heavy duty bollards. Not sure how common it is to see cars plow into the existing lot, but seems like the building would be a target for drunk or distracted drivers.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Pretty sure those initial estimates were extremely rough and very early on in the process. Lowest number I ever saw was 150M.

Re: Bunge Mill (SE Como)

I'm excited about this project and am glad they're keeping the tower. I also like the idea of the peace totem but... I'm hoping they do a bit better than "May Peace Prevail" in lime green, 1,000,000 pt Arial font. What are the odds that's just a placeholder and they hire an artist for the real thin...

Re: Southside - General Topics

Anybody know where dirt that is piling up east of Hiawatha and south of Lake St. is coming from?

Re: The Capp - 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use

For those who have been by this project lately, is it strange that they have a corner wall built up along the alley behind Falls Liquor before they have the foundation for the building in place? I wasn't expecting to see any walls above ground for a while.

Re: What wrong with our parks?

Minnehaha Falls Park is probably my favorite Minneapolis park. The addition of Sea Salt and subsequent pavilion renovation a couple years ago really polished up this place nicely. It feels like a European park to me. Not to mention Longfellow Gardens right next to it. I agree with Karen and also thi...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

On the Hulu Live free trial this week. The quality is not as good as YouTube. There are many times during a broadcast, FSN's broadcast of MNUFC's game against Orlando last Saturday for example, where the stream jumps back a few seconds and repeats. A few other little streaming glitches here and ther...

Re: Single Family Home Architectural Styles in Minneapolis

I personally love my three-season porch. It's my favorite place in my house. Ours definitely was converted from an open porch. The converted porch cut through a window, so the window was covered over. We've since shifted the window over and opened it up again. I really like open porches too, but I l...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

FWIW, I tried YouTube TV's free trial so I could catch MNUFC's season opener last week. It is a really good deal, especially if you are a sports fan. All the ESPN offerings and FS1, FS2, FSN and FSN+. The image quality is very good and the interface is nice. At $35.00 plus tax, it beats Sling's pric...

Re: The Capp - 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use

I like how this sounds. I agree that this concept would be cool at the Uptown location too, with connection to the Greenway. This statement though stood out for me, "We’re going to test it and see how it goes." I think it will go well, but what would they do if it didn't go well? Of course the next ...

Building is coming down. Ground breaking is March 15th.
Where did you learn about the ground-breaking?

There's a new chain link fence up around this lot now. Hoping for some movement on this project soon.

Watching the last few chunks of Rainbow coming down on the construction cam today brings a tear to my eye. A tear of joy that is.
