Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I live in a neighborhood with several rental homes, apartments, many single family homes, and up until recently a mobile home park. I get the need for multi family affordable housing. Right now we have areas where these types of buildings are allowed, but aren't being built; why is that? Let's look...

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

Not that it's a make or break factor, but I'm puzzled at the comments saying the trees on the AECOM project won't survive. LPM and Nic on 5th are both supporting 2+ story trees on their roof decks. As long as the right cultivars are selected and proper measures are taken to enable their success, I ...

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

Sherman's proposal is 10 stories, has the most units (including 20% affordable), as well as the Pinstripes (very similar to their last proposal). The AECOM proposal is probably the best looking. 8 stories of for-sale condos (and ground floor retail) with a very unique facade. Can't say I've seen an...

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

Can you explain a little more what you mean about the taxes, and how it relates to this piece of land? I’m not familiar with how the system works in Minneapolis, much less any other city.

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

The annoyance of taxes being based off of the development on the property and not the land is killing us in this situation. PRIME land. Empty. Eyes forever rolling.

Re: Art and Architecture Building Redevelopment - 3338 University Ave SE - 14 Stories / ~155'

It is exactly where the neighborhood decided they wanted development/density in their plan as well. So I think in general they should be fine with it.

Re: Schafer Richardson Development - 747 Third St. N.

3 bedroom units! This is good. And retail on a street I didn't expect it. And the facade is varied in terms of massing. I'm on board. The color is the only miss for me.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

The funny thing about construction is that it actually proves we don't need it. The world hasn't ended.

At least bury the damn thing. ugh.

Re: 3145 Hennepin - Lander Development

The floor plans have a lot of quirks to them, but the project on the exterior is really nice. Very curious about their egress code compliance on the upper floors haha. Must have been a couple *exceptions* utilized.
