Re: Nicollet Mall

The architecture on on the 16th St Mall is no match for Nicollet. For what that is worth.

He called a guy who saved a bunch of kids a pedo because he made fun of his dumb rocket booster submarine/coffin. The Tesla Model S is a pretty neat $80K car, but most $80K cars are pretty neat. Somehow they are building 5000 model 3s a week but no where near that many are being registered. He is a ...

I feel like Finnegans has done alot to make this area more of a neighborhood. It might just be me but a local watering hole is a nice amenity haha.
So true. I probably would have stayed at Grant Park if I knew Finnegans was going to happen.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

New residents can't come soon enough to this area. On an absolutely beautiful Saturday evening I counted exactly zero people in the Commons. I have also heard that the new Wells Fargo building is loathed by the workforce. All the inconvenience of working downtown, with little of the benefit.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Southwest LRT makes a heavily pedestrian/transit focused Hennepin Ave redo more likely. I never thought of it this way, it is a great point. I am in the camp of Minneapolis, outside of the CBD, has plenty of surface ROW to make an excellent transit system. People lament the fact that there isn't po...

Re: City living trends and predictions

They already use streetview. It is not enough, the streetview images have to be manually referenced to LIDAR data. Google themselves admit they have no ideas on how that process could be automated.

Re: City living trends and predictions

Who knows? Back in 1970s when autonomous vehicle testing began the timeline to full automation was estimated to be 10 years.

There are people who have paid Tesla $3,500 for a self-driving mode that doesn't exist. PT Barnum had a famous saying in regards to people like that.
