Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Correct! http://www.startribune.com/all-night-li ... 503251312/

Also, should we change the name of the thread since the stadium has a name now?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

That WaHu continues to have significant retail vacancies makes me wonder if this market just isn't as strong for casual dining out. Or something. You'd think a Panera or one of a million other options could kill it there.

Re: Art and Architecture Building Development - 3338 University Ave SE - 14 Stories / 155'

I don't love the view *of* the tower being blocked, but it kind of is what it is. I get the sense that's where the Prospect Park community largely comes down on this too. That said, there are still great views of Minneapolis from the base of the tower, but the side facing the new development is alre...

Re: Suburban Malls and Associated Retail News

To clarify, I thought Rosedale has long had the highest sales per square feet.

Rosedale is already the healthiest mall in the area, isn't it?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

To be sure, my point was more that car-free lifestyles are possible in some parts of the city, but that the metro at large is not at all hospitable to walking and taking transit anywhere, much less everywhere.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

There is little holding Americans on to their vehicles other than inertia. More than 3.6 million people live in the Twin Cities metro, and fewer than 750,000 live in Minneapolis or St. Paul. Downtown Minneapolis has 44,000 residents and 160,000 daily workers. No matter how you look at it, most of t...

Re: Minneapolis Mayoral Election 2017

These politics threads have quieted down recently, so figured I'd bump this one up. Almost one year in now, what's the feeling on Jacob Frey? I've overall been pleasantly satisfied with him so far. The big concern during the election seemed to be that he was more style than substance, but I don't th...

Re: Nicollet Mall

Didn't the sculpture garden leave some stuff at Gold Medal Park? I'm pretty sure they're still there. The sculptures really added to the park.

Re: Mozaic (all phases)

Not sure if it's in that article (locked), but isn't Syngenta moving its operations to Chicago in two years? So kind of a short-term win.

I don't know if this is new or not, but T-Rex Cookie says it's closing the shop at the end of the year for the construction, but they plan to re-open the store in the new development in late 2020.

There's a survey here, but more interesting is a lot of ideas for improving the parks along the Mississippi River gorge.

I know this is probably wishful thinking through blue-colored glasses, but I'd be curious what would have happened if Pawlenty run an adult-in-the-room, rich-guy-from-Eagan campaign that better reflect who he actually is, rather than so baldly trying to piggyback on Trump's immigration rhetoric and ...
