Re: Super Talls

I just did a Google Maps aerial view of this place and the first thing I noticed was the 10 story parking ramp and the 5 story ramp connected to this building. The Street View of the tower entrance is not meant for transit or pedestrians, just cars.

Re: Rumors!

I agree Nasa was/is a contentious poster, but I enjoyed it.

Could it be the 1016 Marquette site, anyone remeber that narrow site proposal?

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

From the MN 4 MLS website: Can you explain the whole MLS exclusivity clause with the new Vikings Stadium? First let’s look at the language of the bill: The authority shall, for five years after the first NFL team home game is played in the stadium, grant the NFL team the exclusive right to establish...

Re: Vikings Stadium

It's De ja vu all over again.

But I guess until construction actually starts, these are the topics of conversation. :(

Re: New Senate office building (St. Paul Capitol Hill)

Glad to see a surface parking lot being converted to a building. I though this was interesting:

"The new building can't be taller than 58 feet. State law bars any structure on the campus from exceeding the Capitol cornice in height."

Re: Vikings Stadium

This stadium is really a winter baseball stadium for the upper midwest. The Vikings will just play in it 10 times a year. Here is an excerpt from when the snow collapsed the roof in 2010: Lester said the Metrodome typically hosts hundreds of college baseball games in early spring as teams throughout...

Re: Vikings Stadium

My first thought was "Are you serious?", but it is growing on me. The west side view is nice, but the other 3 sides interaction with the street/neighborhood is poor IMO.

Not sure how they are claiming to connect to the downtown skyway. The only connections I see are to the parking ramps for the VIPs.

I love the separation of automobiles from peds and bikers.
How will the city deal with snow removal in winter from the bike lanes?

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

I would rather see it in downtown StP or Mpls, but I guess the LRT and 494 are good for transport. Probably woudl still need to make 5000 space parking ramp. It seems that this location would not be very pedestrian friendly and not provide much opportunity for pub crawls prior to matches. Let's just...

Re: Downtown Office Market

^^^^ Interesting that the 5th St Towers have a large amount of vacancy. Espcially since it is very close to the LRT stop.

Re: Vikings Stadium

I don't think DTE will look anything like SD for quite a while if there are indeed 3 blocks of 'open space' as the proposed site plan shows. I can't think of an NFL stadium that doesn't isolate itself from the city; even Indy, Detroit and Seattle don't have anything near Petco Park. I hope we can ma...

Re: Vikings Stadium

I still don't get the field level suites.
Why would you want to see the players standing on the sideline or sitting on the bench and watch the game on the TV in the suite? maybe you cna get a smelly towel or empty Gatorade cup from one of the water boys as a souvenir.

Re: The Penfield

My initial thought is "wouldn't it have been easier to re-create the columns?". But I guess they are preserving 'something'.
