Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Wow, it’s nice when things get done quickly. Great job to the paper pushers who got actions done. 😎 we need some wins in 2020 even if they are small ones in the gutters it’s a win!

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I think keep it running down 55 , redevelopment at the golf course (spend that money buying them out instead of the railroad company) then power through glenview terrace park and valley view park (shallow tunnel to preserve park space?) then follow up Theodore wirth pkwy to bottineau blvd. Golf cour...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I looked for a relevant Hennepin Ave construction thread, there are like 3 of them but none specifically fit the Dunwoody-Lyndale Hennepin-intersections of hell. But since the Dunwoody Trail is already talked about here, might as well continue. I’m looking at the diagram of the Dunwoody trail as pr...

Re: Izzy's Ice Cream Factory

There ice cream is as overpriced and overrated as the building they sell it in. I’m sure they will find a sucker to buy it eventually but not for anything close to what they think it is valued at. I doubt they will be here long term be it tenant or owner & business Maybe a restaurant could make it w...

Re: MSP Airport

It took 18 years for passenger levels to get back to pre-9/11. This may be longer than that. I doubt it. if no vaccine cure is created and herd immunity is required then forsure after 2 years we will be see everything starting to open back up, and within 2 years of that (4 total) people will start ...

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 35 stories / 393'

it would be such a shame if they derail this development. It's seems so rare we get nice to decent development that also works to build new public sidewalk connections. Having that nice step down to the trail is going to be a major benefit for so many. This actually is going to connect our version o...

Re: Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville - General Topics

Well designed grade separation can be a great benefit I agree, however I'm a bit puzzled how a trail bridge here would fit together in a regional trail system. I admit I don't know what the long term plan is but connecting the Co. Rd. 5 and/or Buck hill Rd trails to the soon to be built 35W bike tra...

Re: Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville - General Topics

When suburbs say they want walkable it usually means "we'll build wide sidewalks and some fancy trails but we're going to keep widening roads because we like our cars and driving fast too much to give that up." I do like the roadway coming off southbound 35W just south of 42 that leads directly int...

Re: Proposed Cable Median Barriers on at-grade highways

That’s pretty harsh friend. I used to have a co-worker who used to hound and badger me about my smoking. I always tried being nice and friendly about it, but I used to think he was harsh to put it nicely. Later I changed my views after I quit smoking and saw things from a different perspective. Mot...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

From my recollection they would need to have acquired properties to link to Hampshire. The Edgewood “industrial” district has been slowly turning over businesses to be less industrial. I heard a brewpub or distillery was opening up at the end of Florida, for instance. The little industrial parks ar...

Re: Proposed Cable Median Barriers on at-grade highways

Cable median barriers are crazy dangerous for motorcyclists. While a motorcyclist in a crash will hit against a guard rail, they can get decapitated by cable median barriers. I was under the impression that they were generally discouraged for this reason. I think the solution to that is simple. Don...

Wow those other two short and "plump" buildings look really nice. Granted it looks more like Bloomington than downtown, but still very beautiful place. Can't wait to see what it all looks like from this spot when they are all done. At this rate that be what? Thursday eh?

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

Only thing that would make it worth it would be if they were affordable micro studio apartments say 250-300sq ft with prices at 550 to 650 rent prices. Be a great opportunity for people just starting out after college in all that debt.

If a new route that includes a (or two) west end station were to be considered I would say that’s a great victory for the delay.

Since we're in fantasy mode...

Those two downtowns are two of the seven county seats in our metro area, and they could rela...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

The idea of freeway lids keeps popping up on this forum. I understand the desire for connection, but there are still many acres of underutilized land downtown, and there are gaping infrastructure needs everywhere. Juxtaposing the square footage cost of space on top of a freeway cap to these facts, ...
