Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Went into the Skyscape location for the first time ever a few weeks ago. Midday on a Saturday, it was completely dead.

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

So the goal is to force people to walk somewhere they'd rather not walk, in the hope that you can manufacture a thriving street culture similar to those found on the East Coast? Why not just try to improve the iconic and unique pedestrian system you already have? Is this in response to the projecto...

Because it's thriving for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week (slight exaggeration but you get the point).

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I've thought about for about five minutes, and I don't get how avoiding fast food for "healthy eating" is funny. And I like to mock and ridicule just as much as the next guy.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Maybe once we stop being such a lame winter destination it would work well. Lets figure that out first, then invite the yokels.

Ultra efficient windows will push moisture infiltration into your wall cavities- just be aware.

Re: Wells Fargo Redevelopment - 801 Portland

Hmm... they easily could have designed this without that curb cut. But then the entrance would be much less obvious, of course.
Also, hate the first level material choice. Almost makes the whole thing look like a parking garage at street level.
Besides that, this is pretty good for this spot.

Re: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments

I know we're all "build it, build it, build it" but this design is trash. The scale is all wrong. As is it should be 12-13ish stories max in my opinion.

Lame. Did they get push back from the HPC on that other proposal? Design wise, this one is a huge downgrade.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

Sorry, just a random thought since this thread popped back up to the top.

On topic -- to me, as a frequent user, 4th is easily the most disruptive of the surrounding streets with the 3 lanes of speeding cars. But I assume the least likely to be changed for the better.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

Cool story, but this park is kind of great and the programming this summer has been awesome. We've lived near gold medal park since 2008 and we've used this park this summer way more then we've ever used gold medal park. Other people are figuring it out as well. Its a great spot.

Re: Bike Share

Car2Go's were just where people left them though, right? Bird is literally placing these scooters where they want them every night. At least that's my understanding. I'm sure they'll adjust things.

Yep, hopefully this bit "I will be exploring options for addressing this in the future." is just lip service.

Re: Bike Share

Saw an old dork cruising his scooter down the sidewalk in north loop today. If he had passed me directly i would have yelled at him. Nice ride users like to use sidewalks, too.
