Almost 1200 new homes on three blocks? I'll take it.

Re: Ford Plant Redevelopment - Highland Park

1) I think the amount of housing units will be flexible - nobody will remember 15 years from now how many they were allowed. Maybe they will? Who knows.

2) I try to leave a positive comment on every urbanist strib article now without reading all the hateful ones. Its going medium.

Being able to afford those half floor / full floor units would be the ultimate life goal.

Thanks for funding the site, Grant. Couldn't happen without you.


Seanrichardryan, I'm apparently blocked by Saralyn. Is she doxing anyone else that spoke at the meeting last night?
You DEFINITELY should go to the next meeting. Love it

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I honestly thought the revision would have dropped by now - so they could have a few days of staffed "replies" before the weekend. If it is later in the week, media has all weekend to really say what they want. Unless it is no longer going to be released this week?

As much as I would like to see that happening, I don't see it being likely since they seem to only be interested in routes in between 200 and 300 miles long and Zip Rail is either to short if you just go to Rochester or to long if you want it to extend it to Chicago.
Columbus to Chicago PLEASE

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

A spec office building about to be proposed downtown. It looks nice. Don't expect much height, but its nice looking for sure. Should be shared soon.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Saw a rendering of a losing bid for the air rights above Central Station on the Green Line today. Can't share much but I'm hoping whoever beat out the kick ass design I saw has an even better design. Fingers crossed for an announcement.

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

hmmm. I like the layout and the interior circulation. Materials- eh I think the materials are just poor rendering quality. You can see that the "limestone bands" are actually just a white fill with 50% opacity over the brick kicked out by the render software. Just some sloppy photoshop work -the br...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 18-20 stories

It's difficult to tell the amount of space between the tower and the 2 story piece at the intersection but a skinny 5 portion would do a lot to cap the block

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I'd love if the consequence was getting a new office tower. Convert four old buildings, create demand, build a new tower.

Very Sim City. Love it.

Re: Crime

Crowd sourcing your moving fees is a bold move... On one hand - totally get it. Nuisance crime is one thing, dying is another. On the other hand, I still hope this area turns around. Broadway has decent bones and opportunity is gradually increasing in the neighborhood.
