Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Given the name and "The simple material pallet of natural terra cotta, grey glass and heavy timber structure..." (emphasis added), I'm going to go ahead and assume it'll be mass timber, yes.

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

Regarding St. Joe: there are a ton of CSB|SJU students who could make use of such a stop.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

MPRB has also published long-range plans for Minnehaha Creek. https://www.minneapolisparks.org/project_updates/check-out-initial-plans-outlining-the-future-of-parks-and-trails-along-minnehaha-creek/ Segment 3 is of the greatest interest to me, as we live just north of the parkway. 3-1A is my selfish...

... but every one of these projects link up in some way or another, and as a whole will dramatically improve transit service for a lot of people in Minneapolis.
You aren't kidding. The map on that site is pretty exciting.

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

Considering I have my eye on the VW I.D. BUZZ and I live in &^#$%ing cold Minneapolis, that was a good article to read. Should probably set aside some $$$ to insulate and heat the garage by the time the new bus is available.

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. 🙄

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

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.

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.
