Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

Yeah there's definitely a lot of work to be done in ensuring it's not a car funnel. I would suggest 28th to 32nd be vastly calmed and made into a semi self sufficient little urban node of its own. The area se of this is a major car playground.

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

Potentially making local traffic drive half a mile around their destination for a 1 block calmed pedestrian area? Who said one block? I'm eyeing at least 28th to Lake. But who are "people?" Because there are people on buses (eventually streetcar?), bikes and foot too. Especially local traffic. But ...

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

I don't think it's a great idea to close the street to automobiles. I'm a big fan of having as many open free streets for all modes as possible. I'm trying to imagine the congestion on blaisdell and 1st, and overly convoluted routes around the area if this would be. It would be a disservice to pede...

Re: Root District - Farmers Market / Royalston Station

I'd imagine it's because it's about to have a light rail stop, it's very close to north loop, has the farmers market and is literally nothing but potential.

Re: 2019-2020 MN Legislative Session / Budget / Bonding

Yeah, not even bothering to try for a legalization bill seems like a good way to lose a possibly crucial amount of votes to the weed parties. Looks like it's on its way! https://mobile.twitter.com/_RyanWinkler/status/1229872359269638150?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E122987235...

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

I wonder if the horizontal bands/vertical columns are actually stone/tile or just stamped concrete - would hope the former. The building is clad in a stone called Alabama silver shadow. A natural limestone. One of my favorites, actually. It will have natural marble line veining when clean and dry. ...

Re: Melzer Block (E Hennepin between Univ and 4th) for Sale

I'm all about dense urban development, but this is a really nice collection of urban, street activating retail. I'd be really upset to see this block go. Taking out the section on university maybe but... this is crucial ne history.

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 40 stories / 442'

A couple of updates I really like. The sky terrace bisecting the residential tower is really interesting visually. The corner cut out on the north side really breaks up the monotony of the box shape. I think overall a really solid design. I like the solid metal addition, I hope it's good quality mat...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 23 stories - 256'

It seems to me that when the bank building went up, it was white - which at least referenced the Yamasaki gem at Washington and Hennepin. The current buff color does the building no favors. It fit the neighborhood better when the Jaguar dealership was across the street, but at this point it does no...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 240 Hennepin Ave - 23 stories - 256'

It’s too bad this project doesn’t include replacing the 21st Century Bank Building. It is a sad remnant of the worst architecture to come out of the massive urban “renewal” project of the 1960’s. Perhaps once this tower is complete, the bank building could be tackled for a scaled down companion to ...
