Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

Yeah, this one was kind of out of left field? Out of all the places, who would have guessed that parking lot would be getting a new building (let alone a 40 some story tower) a couple years ago?

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

How many years do we have left until we hit the 2ºC temperature rise that is a tipping point for climate change—11 years? How long will this building take to build? When will transit come online? How long will this building last? Last year we were warned we had 12 years. Now we have 11 years. Next ...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

I tend to think that, for now, you’re just really not going to sell a $750,000 condo in Minneapolis without a parking space, and for most people/households in that market, one spot is a hard sell.

Last I heard, yeah, they’re using the affordable housing site for staging for train construction, which is part of why it’s the last phase.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

(and since new development continues to open along transit, like the 200+ students moving into The Hub directly across from the East Bank Station, we might fairly expect a slight increase in the percentages). I wonder if that shift does have a noticeable impact on bus ridership? I have to imagine t...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Wasn’t splitting the 4 into a north and south route supposed to happen sometime soon? That was in the service improvement plan a couple years ago but have not heard much about it since.

Re: Good time to buy a condo?

Prices on downtown condos have gone up, but definitely not to the extent that houses have in other parts of the city. I think the astronomical HOA fees do a lot to suppress values, which has pros and cons. I'm also looking/thinking about it and there's not really a ton of buildings, especially at th...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I think with “station design” the issue isn’t exactly referring to, like, public art, the problem is unnecessary excavation and building huge concourses, etc.
