Re: Star Tribune Blocks

I could have sworn I saw a render here with a large tower on the west side of the park, but now I can't seem to find it and it's not in Ryan's fly-through. Did I just imagine it?

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

JMS9 and Minneboy are baiting each other. Apart from that, nothing I can see.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

It's not even a question of simple rivalry. Growing up in some of the northeastern suburbs, most of the people I knew thought of the central city as being St. Paul, not Minneapolis. Not out of rivalry, just perception probably based on proximity and frequency of visiting.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I cringe when I hear local news anchors call MSP International airport. Twin Cities airport. I think I heard that on CH 5? Or for that mater when ANY major event happens in Minneapolis the anchors say "In the Twin Cities today.....", Counter that with crime or murders. The anchors are seem eager to...

Re: Opus Dinkytown Project - (14th Avenue SE & 5th Street SE

I don't think I've heard anyone opposing this development suggest redevelopment as smaller buildings. I'm pretty positive that's NOT the core issue. The core, if there is one, is an anti-change sentiment. People want the same experience they had as undergrads when they come back ten or fifty years l...

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

We are told that stadiums downtown mean customers at restaurants and bars downtown. We are also told that thousands need space dedicated to drinking and eating their own food outside. Pick one.

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Lots of people jump off bridges, even some of my friends. That doesn't mean we should dedicate vast swaths of valuable downtown real estate to bridges that end in midair to facilitate the desires of a tiny minority.

Re: Opus Dinkytown Project - (14th Avenue SE & 5th Street SE

Wish I could help you guys, but even though I'm on campus at least every other week, I'm on the wrong side of 280 to have any say in the matter. So send extra messages for the rest if us.

Two advantages that haven't been mentioned are crepes at the summer stand at Meritage and proximity to Heimie's.

The dollar store comment is weird. Without being familiar with that site, it smacks of classism.

Re: Opus Dinkytown Project - (14th Avenue SE & 5th Street SE

I left a very polite comment on the status The Book House posted regarding their victory telling them that I was disappointed and would no longer be shopping at stores that promote bad city planning and empty storefronts. It's been deleted without comment. Their employee is elsewhere suggesting that...

Re: Opus Dinkytown Project - (14th Avenue SE & 5th Street SE

What a phenomenally idiotic decision. Duffy's will no doubt close anyway since the owners want out so only the salon will remain in-situ for now. Making that block an even bigger waste of space than it already was.

Re: Selby and Snelling

O'Gara's is about 1/3 full during the day and then fills around 5. I know this because I can see the lot from my bedroom window. But O'Gara's is also one of the businesses worried about not having enough since they're primarily responsible for the non-bank parking at the bank lot that DOES get used,...
