Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

In an interview with our future mayor: " Q Is the Nicollet/Central streetcar project dead? Are we still raising money for it? I think it is dead. But yes, we are still capturing value on projects to fund a streetcar. Four years ago when I ran for council I was for it, for the economic development b...

Re: 80 Broadway St. NE

Thanks, I've been wondering what this was going to be.

Re: Mortenson / USBank site - 333 Hennepin Ave E (290' - 26 stories)

Demo is super underway. The building is totally gone, and they were digging around in the foundation this morning. Weird to see the Nord Haus townhouses from 4th St and Hennepin! Won't have that view for long.

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

Makes sense that since it's directly on the LRT line that people don't use cars as much, right?

Re: Minneapolis City Council and Park Board Elections 2017

But Jentzen has few 2nd and 3rd choice votes, so she could definitely still lose if most of Bildsoe's voters put Fletcher 2nd. Nailed it - Bildsoe voters went 1750 2nd for Fletcher, vs 250 2nd for Jentzen. 700ish exhausted. Fletcher wins ward 3! http://vote.minneapolismn.gov/results/2017/2017-ward-...

Re: Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

Do we know what's happening with the auto shop there? Or is that outside of phase 2?

Re: Minneapolis Mayoral Election 2017

Hoch is their #2, and they opt not to choose a #3. Honestly the fact that they chose Hoch as their second choice makes me a lot less confident in the whole thing. They seem super into working with local businesses and "compromise", which I guess means compromise between progressive ideas and busines...

Re: Cheap groceries and walkability

In the last three places I've lived around Minneapolis, the closer grocery store was always more expensive. Kowalski's/The Wedge in the north part of Uptown vs. the Uptown Rainbow/now Cub Lunds downtown vs. ... still the Uptown Cub? Broadway? Does DT Target count? Lunds NE vs. Quarry Cub. Actually W...

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

Minnapolis is buying the land underneath that KMart, using money from the Streetcar Value Capture Fund. KMart still has a lease valid until 2053 though. http://www.startribune.com/minneapolis-to-buy-site-of-kmart-at-nicollet-avenue-and-lake-street/429755363/ Not sure if this shows they are serious a...
