Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

People with money can also 2 hour Amazon most things to their apartment, I don't think the concept of having a car is directly related to where retail is. People want the independence and autonomy associated with it, it's very ingrained and will take generations to change.

Re: Mozaic (all phases)

I haven't taken any pictures, but there are cool details all over the project now. Interesting bases to all the columns that reach the sidewalk etc etc. Nice project for sure.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

I think it will be a beautiful building, I hope the new developments along Washington help it connect into the skyline a little bit. It's going to be very isolated over there.

Is there an art installation happening across from the library? There is a massive something being built on scaffolding with lifts.
It's called nimbus, the previous post has a link to some info about it, looks pretty cool

If you're playing computer games on 35 dollar internet and confused why the speeds aren't good, maybe you don't fundamentally understand how internet and games works lol.

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I mean yeah percentages aren't a great way to measure the cost of something that was 20 percent of the cost of the next comparable competitor. Expanding companies need capital to expand and they are doing an amazing job of providing high speed internet for a reasonable price in Minneapolis which giv...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

Big rate hike? It's 15 dollars a month - For those customers who did have a cheaper level but for the majority of their customers, myself included we were already paying 50 a month for 100mbps, and we're now getting a free upgrade to 300mbps. I can't complain. I've always had great service from usi,...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

This will directly block the remaining viewshed left of ING and the Grain Belt sign. I don't argue for views much, but this is all too wrong. The skyways ruin ALL view-sheds in Minneapolis. One of their greatest downfalls. I would disagree with that, I think it adds to the view. It's an architectur...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

I think the stone cornice looks nice and adds texture, but agree that one course of it looks silly, it would be every 4 floors or at least repeated at the very top of the stone section. Retail is a necessity here. It's crazy to imagine a site so close to the stadium and lining a major new park not t...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

This building is just so mismatched and inelegant. Such clunky layers and lack of architectural definition. The mixed uses are amazing and I can't wait for this area to be brought to life, you would just think it could be done with a little more finesse. I'm also feeling weird about the corner of he...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I personally think it would be healthier, cooler and more organic for the fringes of the site to develop first, get some residential mixed use going on around the site, get 20k fans there on a regular basis and then try to build the prime corner site once there is more demand and vision for the area.

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

That's pretty extreme density. I also would like to have seen a third tower, however I'm very pleased by the second one. After being extremely underwhelmed by the first tower I'm happy the second one seems pretty put together even if it's not super remarkable.

Why is a large chunk of the Ford Rail Yard not developed in those renderings? Saving it for green space, a park, or something else (besides a trail and maybe transitway)?
Ryan companies does not own that, the rail company does.

That arched window makes it look cyclops-y
My partner said it was a Minneapolis Frankenstein Wells Fargo, Rand Tower, Carlyle Plus a little pinnacle at the falls to boot. That window reminds me so much of the towers across the river.
