Re: 1400 Park Avenue

I was wondering what those blocks were, and why the retaining wall on that side was so far from the building edge.

Sucks, but my wife and I hardly ever went there. Kind of an awkward space. I'll miss the burgers.

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Tear out all the infrastructure in the water and let it go natural. This is just dumb. A real waterfall transitioning to rapids in the middle of the metro is 1000x more interesting than a walkway around a shitty concrete apron. You are suggesting removing the functioning hydroelectric station that ...

Check out this article starting at "Eastman Tunnel Collapse" and continuing through "Preservation..." to see why that is unlikely to be possible. https://web.archive.org/web/20120205042 ... gineering/

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

I'm curious, do you visit the park on the tip of Nicollet island, or the one by the power station, weekly? Assuming no, what about this would do you think would draw you regularly? *The power station park* only once or twice a year because it is a dead end and on the far bank from where I start (th...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

So did we talk about this? The 801 Chophouse didn't take their name from the address, 801 Nicollet Mall S. It's the name of the chain and just a coincidence that they landed at that address.

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Well I hope someone goes in and stabilizes it soon at least. The roof sag is noticeably worse than when I posted that picture a couple years ago .

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Anyone know why 4th Street past Park Ave downtown is closed? A quick internet search didn't come up with anything. It is really snarling traffic. As I was walking to the river yesterday an ambulance had to go into the protected bike lane to get around a Metro Transit bus blocking the intersection.
