Re: 800 Washington Ave S (Guthrie Ramp liner development: Reloaded)

Yeah, and a project like this doesn't seem to be pancake stacked floor plans, likely meaning a ton of new work for the drawing set. 13/14 story is the "next step" above 6 so I'm feeling confident in it happening. The numbers tend to work in this range and justify the switch from Type 3a construction...

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

You're right. Still, you could design the street section in such a way that this wasn't the case. And I suspect that it's a detail that even those who've been paying attention may not have fully understood, and one that might make a lot of people (present company of course excluded) upset when they...

That's pretty disappointing... lets hope none of the "concerned neighbors" never need care in their later years... So short sighted.

Also just looked and no type A units are required until 20 units is exceeded. So they're all type B.

Re: Southside - General Topics

My understanding (which may be wrong!) is that new apartment buildings have to have 20% of their units accessible, with the additional caveat that there has to be as much variety in accessible units as there is in the whole building. So, for example, you can't have a building with 2 accessible two-...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Good. I'd love for a developer to take some underutilized land and build a row of beautiful triplexes for people to drool over and then realize the world is not ending.

Also, the triplex issue was so cOnTrOvErSiAl that so many awesome steps forward in the plan snuck on by without much scrutiny.

Do you use it?
Seeing as I was relocated to Columbus OH as my profile is displaying at you - obviously the answer is no.

But an 1/8th of a block can be trees. Softens a downtown.

At one point there was talk of interlining Rush and Riverview. But I suppose that’s dead now that Rush is BRT and Riverview is streetcar.
If they could have somehow gotten D Line to be light rail, ridership would be crazy.

If anyone wants a laugh, the Strib has an article about pickle ball being the next big battle in all that is wrong with the world.

It's pretty hilarious.

Honestly, I am their ideal client, being someone who moved in one car trip last time. If I found 350-400sf in an older building for like 700-800 bucks I'd be down for sure.

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

I agree City people park their cars and forget to touch them for a weeks at a time even though they have them. I think of it as more of a selling feature than as an indicator of lifestyle goals. Especially if they are moving to this building from a less urban environment and this is their first tast...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

I understand what you're saying. 100%. I'm just saying, as someone who works for developers, luxury condos (please note this is what we are talking about) are going to want high parking ratios. I'd also like to note that the size of the units themselves (ie much less studios that we see in luxury ap...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Yeah I get the desire to control parking but if its underground and out of site, I see it as a non-issue. People buying 500k-900k condos have a lot of choice on where they park their money. And if they can't park their cars, they'll take it somewhere else. Rich people don't compromise because they c...
