Re: Road Geek Topics

Idk if Metro Transit can afford all the tickets they'd get. :lol: I always find it interesting how many buses I see running red lights and blocking the box, especially on 6th as they cross Marquette. And yes, traffic was extra bad yesterday but it was directly related to the Twins game and the time...

As an Elliott Park resident I'm jealous of the increased amenities in this neighborhood. Wish they were closer!

Re: Electric Scooters

Nicollet is better than most, although you still get a significant percentage on the sidewalk (maybe 1 in 4 or similar to bicycles on the sidewalk). Most other places it's more like 50/50. In 10 minutes in Gold Medal Park I saw 7 or 8, all on the sidewalk, including a group of six riding up the spir...

As a runner I can tell you there's more than enough of them lying around to block the running paths.
A protected class
It is actually pretty dangerous. Gold Medal Park is nearly overrun with people riding them on the sidewalks and on the grass(!). Saw one toddler almost get knocked over.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Excavation has been progressing SLOWLY for about a month, even though pile driving around the perimeter of the hole hasn't been completed. They've dug down to a consistent depth, but it doesn't seem to be deep enough for the two levels of underground parking shown in the 2016 plans submitted to the ...

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Looks like they're gonna start up again. There have been a parade of utilities on site (although not clear what they've been doing, there are still overhead powerlines criss-crossing the development), and they spent a day welding the pile driver. Today it looks like they're testing it out.

No pile driving since they stopped in the middle of the morning over a month ago. For awhile Xcel was on site, but now nothing.

The retail is a must...the nearest retail to this corner is what a couple blocks away? This area is still forlorn.
On Nicollet yes. Whole Paycheck is a block or two away from here as well.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Pile driving has been stopped for almost a week at less than a third of the way done. Today there were bucket trucks on site. I wonder if they found underground utilities where they didn't expect.

There are still no project banners on the barrier fences other than the ones for Big-D construction.

Few people cook anymore. How many people know how to use an oven today? People order out and reheat leftovers in the microwave. Even people in single family homes with 6-figure kitchens rarely use them.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Wow, pretty surprising the Skyscape one is closing, it's consistently busy whenever I go there. This will be a big negative for the neighborhood. Although maybe not surprising considering the sign in the dairy section today:
