Minneapolis is 15th densest, while St Paul is 21st.
It's interesting how Minneapolis is basically the exact same size as Oakland, in both population and area.

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

The same reason they let anyone who can put two words together write an editorial on SWLRT - repeat clicks for people fighting in the comments and red meat for their dwindling subscription base. I bet even their subscription base will lose interest. The first several dozen articles about how Minnea...

Re: Cedar Ave - Nokomis Area

Good sandwiches, but overpriced and a downright terrible location for this type of business. Did they even bother putting up a sign? I think they completely misread the neighborhood on price-point, foot traffic, everything. Decent enough concept, which might've had a chance in North Loop, Old St. A...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

After a day thinking about this, I actually am more disappointed about the project on the whole. Yes, these designs check the "good sidewalk, bulb-out, street-tree, etc" list. The pavers will mean drivers go slow. Lanes are narrowed. It's all the core things you expect in a good street. But, these ...

This seems to suggest that the parking floors will be built in such a way that they can be converted.

Re: Nic on Fifth - (290' - 26 Stories)

Yeah, I'm told it's offices on the second floor.. Maybe a title company or something. Also, the parking in the building is weirdly empty. I don't know if that's because tenants don't have as many cars as anticipated or if the building just isn't that full. Is this overall or an observation? I suspe...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Got a chance to ride down Washington downtown again today and the lights are still screwey. I got a red bike light while straight/right turn traffic got a green then it started flashing yellow. This is like the opposite of best practices, which would make traffic yield to the most vulnerable (bikes...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

And I'm not suggesting that bikers aren't using the lanes, but not in numbers obviously greater than what was the case before the protected lanes went in. This is a real problem facing bike infrastructure projects; namely, that measurable (and even dramatic) increases in bike traffic are basically ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Yes, the fact that housing is being built is great, but a lot more housing would be better. I realize there are almost certainly budget reasons preventing them from going bigger, but I wonder what else could be done to make this better for the charity and the surrounding area.

Cliche but I wish they were taking more parking, and they could also be taller, with more uses. This is downtown, buildings should be big, and with housing and jobs nearby, they could have retail

Re: Minneapolis Mayoral Election 2017

People I know (and know to be honest) in the restaurant industry are saying things like this about Jacob Frey: One of my biggest regrets of the tip credit battle was failing to record a conversation with him and several industry professionals, in which he told us that he thinks an increase in minim...

1. Hodges 2. Dehn 3. NLP Look a lot of you may know that I was pretty strong Frey to start, but he has screwed up... a lot. Starting with crime, I got eeked out by some of the language that was written in the plan for downtown. Then he tries to attack Hodges on the budget issues while all other can...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

My suspicion is that a big piece of this is a perception issue -- when you're visiting other cities, you're likely to be hanging out in the premier parts of the city, the areas focused on tourists, the areas that receive the most attention from boosters, etc. Yeah but even St Paul seems to be bette...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

So I did go to the open house for the repaving and pedestrian improvements projects. They had handouts of the preliminary paving plans that I imagine will be online soon. Lots of proposed trees, which will be nice. Pavers are proposed for 3rd Street N between 7th Ave N and 10th Ave N, and then 8th ...
