Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

So what exactly are the freight real companies throwing a fit about? In simple terms.

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I was looking at some of the engineer in plans for the blue line extension. He travels and Olsen Memorial Highway for a good distance. Does anyone know if the plans are to give trains priority how long is the memorial highway? I believe the highway is owned by the state or county, they can be diffic...

Re: 800 Washington Ave - 14 stories - 173' (Guthrie Ramp liner development: Reloaded)

This is interesting. I like that. Maybe it's because I'm middle aged, but I think about risks of ownership in this building. How well tested are all these interesting elements? It says "Condominium" so I'm assuming these are owner-occupied units, and it's a lot to ask a pool of random somebodies to...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

That’s awsome! Good that the city is thinking forward. Not holding my breath on MNDOT though.

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 23 stories - 256'

I echo the same sentiment. I’d love to see this one be under construction at the same time as Hennepin Avenue is reconstructed, and gateway is constructed.

Will be interesting to see what happens to ridership on the new C line.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Thanks for the reassurance.

I found an article talking about the transit ridership drops in Minneapolis yesterday. I was very concerned.

Re: Brainstorming: reimagine Franklin Avenue between Hennepin and Bloomington

To me, this goes to show that Minneapolis is starting to transition to more of a form based code. I wish the guidance help more with where parking should be located on the lots. Franklin Avenue is faced by too many parking lots.

Re: L&H Station - Hennepin County - Minneapolis Public Schools site

Ride by this building on the train every week. Here are a few pictures from this morning. The old school building is completely demolished. The land is completely flattened out. Looks like they are ready to start the new building construction. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190607/54909a73d9edd4...

Re: Lowa46 - 46th & Hiawatha Cub Foods Mixed Use

I get it, we're hardcore urbanists, but not every single building has to be multi-story and mixed use, especially when part of a larger vision that does include two apartment buildings and lots of other commercial space. Sure, it would be neat if they put a floor of office space above it, but addin...

That’s awesome, that would be the additional tower just north of the current one near Nicollet Mall, correct?

Re: Brainstorming: reimagine Franklin Avenue between Hennepin and Bloomington

I realize that these types of redevelopment take time, but let’s take the time now to think about what we want this area to look like in 20 years.
