Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

New webcam for "East Town Apartments". Sorry if this had it's own thread, but couldn't find it with a quick search.

Re: Wabasha Center (Former Macy's) - Downtown St. Paul

What's really frustrating about this project is that it could have been so much better by just having the damn street-level windows NOT black/opaque!! One small change would have made a real difference. Boo to the city and this developer.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Anyone know what's going on with the Burger King at Nicollet and 34th? It's been closed for a week now. There's a sign on the door that says it will re-open, but I'm started to think something more might be going on. I haven't seen anyone onsite doing repairs/remodeling (I live nearby). Maybe they ...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

And I hope everyone here reading it is leaving encouraging comments as they read. (But I'm preaching to the choir) And writing the mayor's office and their city council member! Don't let them only hear from the naysayers! Let's show them how much support there is for this. They need to hear from us.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

I think this is a pretty cool idea and gets the mall towards something it was always envisioned to have anyways. The article didn't seem to say, but would this be connected to the mall by some sort of skyway? Or not feasible?

Minneapolis is 15th densest, while St Paul is 21st.
Also, looks like it won't be much longer until Houston is the 3rd largest city overtaking Chicago. But, man, look at that difference in density!

How does one become the President of the Senate? Can the MN Senate select a different person to fill that position before Tina Smith vacates the Lt. Governorship? Chosen by the body. However, a special session would need to be called before the official appointment of Tina to the seat (Jan. 3rd acc...
