Re: 240 Park Ave S - Zygi's Apartments - 18 stories - 188'

Drove by yesterday afternoon and saw a sign by the entrance to the parking lot stating it closes permanently on February 1. Here we go.

Re: Edina – General Topics

Huh. Why the no? Edit: I work just west of here and if I am late leaving the office it's almost eerie just how desolate everything is. The brewery is always hopping, but everything else is completely vacant. Even Subway/Caribou/Starbucks/Cheetah Pizza are virtually empty. Adding residential seems li...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I made the profoundly stupid mistake of clicking "Thank" on a NextDoor post by my neighbor sharing the Slate article about the 2040 plan, and now I'm getting a boatload of notifications for anguished responses from people convinced this is the end of MPLS. 🙄

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

I see labels for Option A (Library) and Option B (this thing), so I have to assume they’re only planning to build one.

Re: Richfield - General Topics - 66th Street

Did we know the Bremer bank at 65th and Nicollet was going away? I drove past this morning and the lot was nearly completely cleared of rubble.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Ave Development & RR Corridor/Grain Elevators

You should get some clarification on which one goes first. The images are swapped relative to the descriptions. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mod note: the image above was updated online, and is now correctly matched.

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

Turtle Bread/Pizza Biga definitely have tables outside. We sit there whenever the weather allows (and we always walk or bike, regardless of season). Although we’re debating giving them up because of this.

We will absolutely use a BRT stop here. Looking forward to it, in fact.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Hmm. The visualization MNDOT posted on YouTube shows SB 35W going under the downtown lanes, which is what I had originally typed before digging up that PDF and changing it to "over". Under makes way more sense anyway.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

The braid is being removed and SB 35W will cross over the downtown lanes farther north. So the whole thing isn't sinking, but that particular cross-section will be pretty flat all the way across. Drawings are here: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/35w94/pdf/ea ... ndix-A.pdf

Re: Arby’s Island

Hot take: the image that's been shared the most is the least flattering, and even then I kinda dig the smooth modern feel. The additional renderings provided in the packet show some more interesting angles and design features. That said, some caveats: the renderings downplay the MagicPaks quite a bi...

There must be some mistake, where is the parking podium?
Right? Three levels of underground parking? I thought Opus said it wasn't feasible one whole block away (diagonally).

Re: Boulevard trees

Our American Elm came down a few years ago and was replaced by a Kentucky Coffeetree. We've been using the watering bag provided for a while now, but the poor thing is just so sad-looking.
