Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

Can’t seem to find the comment now, but something that was weirdly singed into my brain five or six years ago was someone commenting on one of my streets.mn posts where I referred to us as a “medium-sized” metro area. The name on the comment was something like “mpls/stp 16th biggest” and the comment...

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.

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...

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.
