Re: Elliot Park

Isn't this already under construction? The loss of retail is actually a fairly substantial hit to the area if approved.

Just pack a clear bag inside a collapsible bike-friendly bag, then stuff the bike bag inside the clear bag once you're there. Profit!

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

Any further details? Probably about 30 stories with that many units? Hopefully retail frontage as well.

For one, I'd like to know where the data was sourced that was used for that page. Reviewing that study, if it exists, would be worthwhile.

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

That's a BIG "IF." That long-promised 35k TM3? Vaporware thus far. Go out and buy a Hyundai Kona EV in a month or two (37k), get full tax credit, readable gauges, less pretension, and better range. The Kona is a low-volume compliance car. It won’t even be available in most states initially, and whe...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

Keep the skyways but make ingress/egress 10x easier and I'm sold. The mental barrier of having to find/know where to get in/out besides the IDS is a turn off and more crossing up/down would help both thrive. Hopefully Dayton's can help a bit with this.

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

For anyone who hasn't visited (in non-winter I guess), the Bloomington Central Station Park is actually worth seeing and experiencing. Not huge but no expense was spared. One of the best financed parks I've seen in the state. Helps that it's right on the Blue Line. If that can be further emphasized ...

Re: Midtown Greenway

Slightly related; has anyone considered how the Midtown Greenway trail extension over the river could accommodate or dovetail with the Midtown corridor? Could we conceivable get rail service on this line into Saint Paul?

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

Cheap gas strikes again. This is really a further shift to sell fewer loss leader, fuel-efficient ICE cars, and more crossovers and SUVs for the bottom line. Very much like what Ford did recently. BEVs are coming either way as they'll very soon be cheaper to buy and own than even cheap ICE cars. Int...

I bet the best units sell FAST. Great timing for local boomers with some money (there are a lot of them) to "downsize."

Eleven's a slender and nice-looking tower. There are worse things to be looking at. Just be glad the two buildings aren't in the reversed places.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I think it's a tastefully-designed building that isn't done yet. Landscaping and surroundings will also make a big difference. This looks amazing at night. Compares favorably with other MLS stadiums I've seen.
