Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

that's optimistic of you. we should be past the point of trying to cobble together local match dollars. but seriously, look at the multiple lines being built or close to construction in our peer cities. than look at our metro, held hostage by people representing small towns and farm land.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

line isn't happening. DFL had two sessions of complete control of both houses in last half decade and chose to put off more dedicated transit funding for another session. that decision is paying off now isn't it. I have zero regard for whining from transit advocates and like minded DFLers. the house...

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

this threat is such a bitch fest. we're getting two narrowed streets, wide sidewalks, a nice park space.

JMI is the hotel partner. 300 room, five star hotel.

And I'm here wearing a bright red rain coat.
so no mention of the actual hotel brand? or is JMI a hotel? never heard of it. this must be the hotel developer.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

I have been a Vikings fan for 33 years. I loved Red McCombs, previous owner from Texas, until he gutted the team in order to get the most value for his sale. I even like the Wilf's before the whole stadium drama started. But the way they have acted in about the last 5-8 years has been too much for ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

what damage has been? we have ton of robust, growing companies in the twin cities metro.
Valspar isn't fortune 500.
they have renovated buildings in downtown east for research and I don't think this space will be just vacated.
it's the nature of business.

Re: Westminster Church

I don't like this. but whatever they own the land.

how much space does this church need. they just did an expansion a couple years ago. waste of land imo. and I agree I don't like that bell contraption. so I suppose we'll have to hear that thing blaring all the time.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

not sure what the big deal is. when the twins got a street renamed "twins way" there was barely a peep. that being said I think its more the way the Vikings are making the argument. you read their statements and wonder if they actually believe how pretentious they sound. I mean, god forbid we would ...

i agree with lisa goodman. the pavers and the transit shelters were the two things I really liked about this design.

Re: Minneapolis City Politics General Discussion

I'd say the city could net a lot more benefit investing in fixing up streets and infrastructure in places like, say, near northeast (NIEBNA) than in throwing it all away on a little armpit tucked next to some highways just to make billionaire sports owners happy. Let St Paul have this latest mess. ...
