Re: Nicollet 301 - 20 stories - ~200'(?)

Plans from CoW: http://minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@cped/documents/webcontent/wcmsp-219353.pdf Looks nicer than any other Opus building so far. I don't hate it. The single 5,000 sq. ft. restaurant space on Nicollet is not sufficient, especially when considering the Gateway project is barely...

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

If retail/restaurant/entertainment continues to struggle here, I'd expect to see some of that replaced with housing in the future. West End really messed up in putting Punch Bowl Social at the far south end of the retail. Not only is it too far from the theater ( promote synergy! ), they very easily...

Re: Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis - General Topics

That is impressive. The eastern proposal should really pick up those last 3 houses on the block. But OTOH, at 0.7 acres, at there's enough land there do them in a separate project, without it being super awkward. On the bright side (pun intended, wait for it) the way they're planning the massing of ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

My thought is keep it as simple and cheap as possible. Tear down the viaducts (and the access ramps to 94), don't make any new freeway connections, and let freeway traffic disperse as it may. If there is a problem area that develops, address it later. On the south end, I'm not sure why everyone thin...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

The changes at Portland are less drastic than what was shown in some of the initial concepts. No homeowners are losing their quasi-private frontage road / parking spaces in front of their homes. I really want to see more drastic changes to the intersections at 28th and 34th Aves. Those double-stopli...

Re: Plymouth – General Topics

What are the chances that Plymouth approves a 100% affordable project of this scale? If it was affordable senior + market rate rentals, or mixed-income rentals, I'd give it a maybe. I suspect there will be tremendous opposition from the public to a large, 100% affordable proposal like this.

The distillery looks to be planning a surface parking lot that runs tight along the RR tracks, which is basically the only p...

Re: The Future of CSAH 25

West of Beltline/Ottawa Ave, it is as expected. Tough to do much calming west of that intersection. East of Beltline/Ottawa, this plan is a huge disappointment. They need to do a deeper dive on that entire section, consider using roundabouts at Lynn and Inglewood to "push" traffic up to the Minneton...

Re: Sons of Norway block redevelopment - 1455 Lake St W

This is kinda interesting - the developers bought out the entire condo building at 3014 Holmes (2.5 story, 10 units, built 1926). That's a good thing since the development fully surrounds and towers over this building on 3 sides. They are currently using the building as their construction offices. O...

It's not a huge site. It was only going to be a 4,000 sq. ft. restaurant (plus outdoor patio space). I get it, we're hardcore urbanists, but not every single building has to be multi-story and mixed use, especially when part of a larger vision that does include two apartment buildings and lots of ot...
