Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

That’s good. Wonder if the new bridge will be wider. Would like to see the bridge get some pedestrian scale lighting.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

Definitely exciting about construction starting. Interesting discussion further up about the views being obstructed. I can definitely understand both sides of the argument. The person who bought the condo obviously liked the view. I do think the realtor should look into things like this. It is impor...

Re: 581 Old Highway 8 — New Brighton

That’s really good! On a personal note, it annoys me when I see articles that referred to affordable housing and said articles don’t mention access to public transit. I can’t see, hence why am asking this question, how wide are the street crossings in that area? Will it be relatively easy for pedest...

Re: 581 Old Highway 8 — New Brighton

The article talks about low income families. How are these families going to get around. What transit options are there in that area? The article cited the fact that it’s close to downtown Minneapolis. How long does it take to get to downtown Minneapolis if you don’t drive? If there is transit servi...

Thanks :-)

How long does it take for the bus to complete one full charge?

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Totally agree! Especially one that is located in such a prominent area. It will be even better once the block directly to the west of the project is developed.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

Don’t know anymore detail, but this sounds like a good thing. Let’s get something better built there. The least they could do is wrap the parking garage in Apartments.

Does anyone know why the heritage preservation committee is recommending denial of the permit?

I’m pretty sure I’d try to carve out some of the days to try and attend some sessions. This seems like the sort of thing someone should also write a blog post for Streets.mn also. They really should write about this. My skills as a writer are mediocre at best, so I shall leave that to someone more ...

Re: CNU 2020

Correct! I am a little surprised that there does not seem to be much excitement/enthusiasm about this topic on the forum.

I have been wanting to go to this groups national gathering for at least three years now. So glad it’s going to be right in our backyard

Re: Rafter - 333 Hennepin Ave E (290' - 26 stories)

I’m not as thrilled with the graphic quality of the building. It still bothers me that it does not look like the building that was approved by the planning commission.

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

I hear what people are saying about grade separator LRT. I am concerned about the amount of time and disruption it would cause during construction. I could be wrong, but I feel like this type of construction project would disrupt transit on the green line for at least nine months. Would there be any...

Whether or not ridership was high enough, what are the other options that the few riders who took this route will have?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

What is the green you saw at the HERC? I wonder if it’s possible that the crane could be there gearing up for Southwest construction? I’m thinking in particular about the construction of the linking point near the interchange.

Re: Elliot Park

I’m OK with the addition of more fordable housing. This does speak to a significant problem. A problem that needs to be fixed immediately. A developer should not be able to change the aesthetic’s, or design at the building after it has started construction. What would have happened if the planning c...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I’d say a top priority should be to make NextTrip actually work. Fix the “real time” screens so that they use gps data instead of schedules. I did not know that the screens did not use the information provided by the GPS. I just assumed they did use the GPS data. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

So are they saying that homeless people will not be allowed to sleep on the train? Kicking them off solves nothing in the long term. Personally I don’t have a problem with homeless people sleeping on trains. I am a bit concerned about them sleeping in the seats designated for persons with disabiliti...

Re: MSP Airport

People must do it though, otherwise why would they run trains throughout the night between terminal one and two, even when all of these trains don’t go to the end of the line? If people weren’t doing it, there would be no need to run trains.
