Lots of family-friendly 2 BR units in the mix.
It's not family-friendly unless it's a mansion with at least 10 bedrooms and a cleaning staff.

Re: Lowa46 - 46th & Hiawatha Mixed Use Cub Foods

The url looks like "Iowa46.com" 😁

Do people actually get paid to design bad branding, or does this happen to save money? What degree do I need to string acronyms together? 🤔

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

To comment on two things: The "Maplewood Mall" station goes to the transit center and park and ride ramp in the SW corner outlot. It doesn't go directly to the mall, but it is important for transfers to other bus routes (54, 64, 80, 219, 223, express buses) and it does provide access to structured p...

Re: Roof Depot site

For me, I think of the Phalen Village Community Garden close to home, by Maryland Ave and Hazelwood. It certainly provides valuable green space, but it can't literally feed the neighborhood. Cano could really use a better track record of promoting helpful policy instead of feel-good solutions. There...

Re: Roof Depot site

His snark is probably for the same reason I'm snarky about urban farming. It's often a feel-good solution that takes the place of other, better solutions. A grocery store (or even a corner store) does a lot more to fix a food desert, while actual farmland outside of the city is far more efficient/ef...

It looks like they're eliminating a lot of "school trips", is that where they're getting the hours to reinstate service elsewhere?

If a major automaker bought Tesla, would it be profitable within a year? I think it would be awesome to see a Jeep/Dodge buyout of Tesla. Imagine an electric wrangler. 💰
Plug-in hybrid wranglers are coming soon, 2020 I think.

Re: trees in Atlanta

To elucidate on that implication, more density means less infrastructure/service costs per capita, which allows us to spend more on priorities like parks. St Paul has a $50+ million maintenance backlog in their park system, and yet their parks are considered better than many other cities. If St Paul...
