Re: 200 Central (2019) - 293' / 27 Stories

I wish they'd bring back that light-bar from the 12th street apartments proposal. I think as dumb as it sounds, that simple addition would have made us all pleased with the design even with the reduction in height relative to Alia. It would add something unique to the building.

Re: Alia Tower - 200 Central - 483' / 40 Stories

@Twincitizen agreed. As long as this gets built, and relatively soon, I will be more than happy to see a 300 ft building that I still think looks nice rise on that side of the river. Will continue to add to that skyline and add density the area.

Looks like the core may be above ground very soon? Extremely fast progress!

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

Sister lives directly next door, they can not wait to have a bakery and hopefully get that brewpub. Those would be two huge pieces that would make Downtown east feel like a real neighborhood. I have to say - seeing this building in person I love it. The design and materials are interesting which fit...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

Not to get political, but if we had an administration that explicitly and actively supported city's improving public transport, I would hope to see our local government seize on the opportunity and push through some bold policy's like the Greenway streetcar/light-rail. One can hope.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Also the restaurant space in the Vicinty at 205 Park Ave will possibly be home to a Heritage-Grain Brewpub along with the already planned bakery on the other corner per mspmag.com http://mspmag.com/eat-and-drink/foodie/would-you-invest-in-a-heritage-grain-brew-pub/ Would live to see a brewpub in thi...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

Agreed with the B Line statement. Incredible density and foot traffic in the area that will only continue to expand. I would also add that we may be surprised by the ridership numbers on the B line compared to the #21 bus. I live in Uptown and most of my friends live there and none of them use the b...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I like the sounds of both of those alternative routes. You would still need a way to connect to Target's northern campus, correct? Or is the alternative to skip that entirely?

Re: Cambria / Fairfield Hotels - 41 10th Street N (former Ramada block)

You'd have to think both. Lots of reports of businesses on that side of downtown writing to the city to clean up the crime because it has been impacting their business. Also the lack of development has to be to blame as well- bad streets, poor lighting, large empty parking lots, etc at night is not ...

There's no way that guest parking can stay, but a great project. Have always admired that building, would love to see some improved exterior lighting.

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

Can someone remind me, so the main benefits on travel times from this type of BRT is that it will have fewer stops along it's route, higher frequency and signal priority correct? Or are they considering the red painted bus only lanes during some parts of the day like we see on Hennepin and Chicago a...

I wonder if the next location they're looking at is that surface lot across the street from this. Would be nice to get that developed.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I would love more rooftop dining/places to drink downtown, so this would be great! I just think about whenever I visit a major city it's always fun to find a rooftop bar and grab a drink with a cool view to get the lay of the land/great photo opportunities.

Re: Fantasy maps

Yes exactly the sorts of routes I was thinking about. Your map does a great job of showing the complexity of an idea like this though there's so many places that should be hit including St. Anthony Main area which I'm just realizing now. Also the need to use existing infrastructure to save on costs ...
