Maybe Ackerberg can sell the vacant lot in front of the parking ramp, and focus instead of redeveloping one or two pieces of the site with more intense use
This whole mall, parking ramp and vacant lot are actually all for sale right now

Re: Dinkytower - McDonalds redevelopment

I’d be (half) shocked if McDonalds just straight up walked away from this lucrative market. Like, they could totally open a location in the former CVS spot kitty corner from here. But they won’t, because no drive thru, in MN. If they won’t bother to open one downtown, it probably won’t meet corpora...

Re: Hennepin Avenue (Franklin to 36th)

I know the construction is pretty much finished now but how area between lake at 31st end up so barren? kind of surprised that they didn't add anything like storm water pavers to add some variety. I'll repeat my earlier criticism that the Lake to 31st block absolutely needs to have have pull-off bay...

Remnants of the Nicollet Hotel's basement are currently exposed on site, for anyone interested in looking.
Sounds pretty cool do you know where to go to get the best look at this?

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

Addressing the office being reassigned the exact same thing happened with the southwest project office staff as well. There are other large Metro transit projects that need support and the staff can be used to support the departments. When the project picks up again they are just all called back.

Re: Vicinity - 205 Park Avenue (Mill District Ramp Parcel)

Doesn't sound like they want it sounds like they already signed a 5 years lease to a company. Seeing as this was a this was a parcel of Minneapolis owned land this is pretty dumb. We are already short on housing and now we are giving a huge chunk of that to short term rentals. 24ish of the remaining...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Not to change the topic but this references the T3 building and some of the renderings have wooden columns. Anyone know if this will be all wooden construction? T3 paved the way for that as it was the first mass timber building over 5 stories in the country at 7 stories. That building has an awesome...

Re: Raymond Station area developments

There is another garage door under there that leads to the apt parking. I think it goes down another level bellow that as well for residences.

I agree with you tho I think there are and will be a lot of people in the area that can just walk to the retail in those areas.

Re: Car Sharing / Rental (Car2Go, HourCar, etc.)

Saw that Lime was introducing a Car2Go like service in Seattle just made me remember when it was here and how useful it was. Maybe we can find a way to make it fair but not chase every transportation alternative away this time.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

I also don't get why they don't have them slope the site down more to meet the river road instead of keeping the wall the way it is now. It would really connect that side of the neighborhood to the river again. The bike trail is between river road and their property so that is a limiting factor. I ...
