Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Cool, I obviously don't shop at Lunds. TJs and Target are my go-to's because I'm cheap.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I remember when it was loudly bemoaned downtown lacked a grocery store. Now there are ... four? I bet even more could survive. By my count, we have 4: Trader Joes Lunds Target Whole Foods Only Lunds and Whole Paycheck are full service. I'd reckon that there is capacity for another full service groc...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I never went into the place, but from what I read it just seemed to be a poorly executed copycat of Seven. A Cheesecake Factory would be a good filler for this location, but I just don't see this space filling for some time.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I have the same feelings about the North Loop. There's NOTHING there. Having walkable fast casual or flat out fast food is a big net positive for an urban community.

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

I've been on trolley busses in Shanghai, the connections had enough swing room so that the busses were not fixed to a single lane of traffic. They were able to easily move around the width of the street.

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

IMO this is one of the underappreciated arguments for trolleybuses, streetcars, and other forms of electric rail. Electric propulsion is great, but not all electric propulsion is created equal. The ideal case for the environment is to transmit the energy to the vehicle while it's in motion, rather ...

Great infill for the area. Don't like the curb cut and garage fronting Nicollet, but I don't know where else they'd put it.

Once sales go through, they won't be confidential anymore. You can search the owner and how much they paid on the county website: https://www.hennepin.us/residents/prope ... ion-search

Re: What will it take to develop DTE?

Crazy to see how many of the ideas became reality... redelopment of KA block, bumpouts, Commons Park, HCMC development. Living in the area, I've been happy with much of the new development but even with all of those changes I feel like the area is still lacking an identity. What do people think wil...

Re: MSP Airport

I would think we will get competing Delta service to Dublin announced real soon I disagree. Delta already flies MSP-LHR. That route has a lot more demand than MSP-DUB. All the travel bloggers were quite shocked that Aer Lingus is coming here in the first place. We'll probably see Delta fighting off...

lol, the lead up to the rendering was something. They had all these design elements of buildings in the area, then they come out with ...drumroll... a gray box.
