Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

There is no question that there is more going on in DT Mpls, but DT St. Paul has a lot to offer. Some of my favorite restaurants are in DT St. Paul:Meritage, St. Paul Grill and Pazzaluna. I understand there are some great spots in Lowertown as well. I would also argue that Rice Park is easily the b...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

The problem with this space isn't that the people are homeless or "undesirable". The problem is the behavior. Leaving piles of trash, drinking, fighting, drug use and gambling are constant at this location. As a society we have decided that these behaviors are not allowed on the sidewalk. So you do...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

I wonder if removing the seating area underneath the sculpture would help? It's really sad that they built this sculpture but now nobody can go see it because it's been taken over by the homeless people. And we've just started getting over making public spaces inhospitable to keep "undesirables" ou...

Re: Bike Share

You know I wonder assuming all of them where dockless, how far out some the e-bikes will end up at end of each day, given how I've seen several different brands/types around hopkins and only one of which has a hub nearby. The ebikes are not docless. I spoke to NiceRide this sping. Their plan is to ...

Re: Bike Share

Can't expect bikes to become a widely accepted part of a multi-modal solution if you gatekeep their access to the most physically fit and able bodied riders... "most physically fit"? Commuting on a current NiceRide bike isn't exactly the Tour de France. I think you're underestimating how big of a w...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

This may get me in trouble, but I'd just like to hear some opinions on this. Don't get me wrong, I'm very empathetic towards the homeless and feel for the horrible situation they're in. But, is it possible this end of Nicollet will continue to struggle because of the crowd that hangs around that ar...

Is that going to be before or after the Sommerfest?
Sommerfest began last weekend. They had a small portion of the plaza open for the outdoor music.

Re: Peavey Plaza

When I walked by the plaza last night it appeared to be just about complete. All the fountains were on and the pool was full.

It will be so nice to have this space operational again.

There was talk a couple years ago of converting Northstar Center into residential. I haven't heard anything since.

Will the holiday market move back downtown once this is completed?
I really hope so. Loring Park is not the ideal location.

Re: Bike Share

Injuries Force Lyft to Hit the Brakes on Its E-Bike Ambitions So it was a real disappointment late Sunday when the ride-hail company announced it would remove all of its electric bicycles—at least for the time being—due to reports of injury. “After a small number of reports and out of an abundance ...

I wonder why they sold. I thought they were still over 50% of building even with the new buildings over by the stadium.
Wells Fargo didn't own the building.
