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.

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.

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!
