Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

Anyone know if this is a ceremonial groundbreaking or the real thing. If I were to go up to the parking garage tomorrow afternoon, you think I would be able to get some pictures of anything actually occurring? Either way this is awesome! It’s so interesting how NEBL Seems to have had no problem with...

Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

Perhaps it's time for transit advocates to shift from pushing for individual projects, to pushing for reform that will allow these projects to get up and running under a reasonable timeframe. It's no wonder we don't have the political will for these projects when five gubernatorial terms separate t...

Why does this stuff take so long? Is it a permiting issue, or money?

Re: City of Minneapolis Office Building - 501 4th Ave S - 11 stories / 171'

I saw the new office building proposal go before the committee of the whole, but has it gone before the planning commission in general?

Re: Ironclad Apartments & Moxy Hotel - Washington & Chicago

I share an appreciation for the ~urban feel~ of a street between 12 story buildings. But also, winter days here are short. My last place was just north of the freeway and I really enjoyed a dose of sun as I walked home from the bus in the evening. My perception from looking at shading diagrams is t...

Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

I feel bad for anyone who Ray now lives in that small apartment building. That’s going to absolutely suck during construction

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

I was thinking about the E line yesterday. There currently redoing Hennepin Avenue from 31st St. to 36 street. It would’ve been the ideal time to upgrade bus facilities to support Arterial bus rapid transit. My only concern with extending the E line all the way to the University of Minnesota is the ...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I’ve done some brief reading of the Minneapolis 2040 comprehensive plan. I am extremely pleased. I want to know what others think about this, it looks like Minneapolis is finally starting to move towards a form based code. Especially with their latest addition of the comprehensive plan. I noticed th...

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

Someone on the other thread mentioned that the city wants to invest in the street car for development potential. Does anybody know the history of development around modern street cars? ...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

Maybe someone on the form can explain this to me. I really don’t understand why the Nickolet/Central Streetcar is a thing. Based on my understanding, streetcars do not really speed up transit. I do not believe Street cars work with signal priority. It just surprises me. I feel like the Nicklett Ave....

More speculation: what about Uniqulo. It’s that Chinese store. Minneapolis could really use one of those.

Re: Arby’s Island

I would love to see a culvers in uptown. I just hope they can make it an urban style culvers. Maybe not have a drive-through, or if they do need a drive-through, put the drive-through underground. Not exactly sure that even possible, but I know they were doing something similar to that near 42nd and...

Re: Mall of America Transit Station: Master Plan

I thought they were having to scale this project back because of a funding problem. Were they able to come up with the necessary funding through a different means? If not, what parts of the project were scaled back? I hope they still kept the proposed escalator entrance into the mall. It’s going to ...

I am very eager to see the old one demolished and replaced with something more urban friendly. In regards to th...
