Chinese food downtown

Anyone know of any good Chinese food places open for lunch in the skyway...or on the street now that it's warm out? I've never really been able to find a consistently good place.

Re: Latitude 45 - (301 Washington Avenue South)

The gateway ramp looks full. I wonder what percentage is leased space versus daily rates, since they'll be making room for residents vehicles. Also hope the skyway gets an update, but it's on public ROW so it's probably city owned. Last time I was in there, the Volkswagen dealers were storing a ton...

Sure it can. Driving at freeway speeds I can get out of Minneapolis on 394 in about 2-3 minutes.

Re: Nicollet Mall

And, sidebar, firepits? Really? I think that's a great idea in theory, but have they had any attorneys thoroughly think that one through? I don't like the idea of fire pits for the same reason, well, actually because I wouldn't want my kids to think it's fun to play with the flames. I DO wish there...

Re: The Eclipse

It would be great for the area to get this site developed. It is a decievingly large site with a lot of wasted space. I didn't realize how big it was until I walked by it a few years ago.

Re: 4Marq - (313' - 30 Stories)

My guess is it will start sometime in late March after the cranes are down for Nic on Fifth. I think that's when LPM's crane will come down as well. I think there has been some slow down in construction due to weather earlier this winter so all these projects need to play catch up. I'm also wonderi...

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

To my knowledge none of the Polad's have been found by a court liable in a civil racketeering case. I cannot remember a time when a Polad has been even accused of fraud. People tend to not like the idea of giving fraudsters a bunch of public dollars. They have. Claiming they needed taxpayers money ...

"Submissions are due Feb. 4. The city expects to select a developer in early March, according to the RFP."

Re: Major League Soccer in Minnesota

If we have learned anything from the Wilfs tenure as Vikings owners, it is that we cannot allow them to own another franchise in the city. They are one of the worst owners in the NFL. They try to run the team their way, even though they are absent from the state 95% of the year. Not to mention they...

Re: Vikings Stadium

The point is even the RENDERINGS look horrible. Sure every project starts with a rough sketch, but then some actual work is done to design the building. It looks like no thought was put into this, just a few random angles and giant blank walls. No attention to detail. Just a gimmicky giant bunker wi...

Re: Super Talls

Not really, because most if not all of the buildings taller than 500 feet here were built for large companies, and even if they weren't F500 they were at least a large business nationally. Even with expansion from a company like Target, the scale of expansion might be just a high-rise depending on ...

HAHAHAHAHA just as I thought, a 5 year old designed the stadium by drawing some random lines on a napkin!

Re: Upper Mississippi -- No Locks For You

Removal? What makes you say that? Aren't they just talking about ceasing operation? Well, that's probably true, at least in the short term. Longer term, they'll require repair and maintenance, and I'd expect that they will actually be removed instead of repairing expensive locks that aren't used. I...

I'll ask it again, and excuse me if this makes me a total n00b, but what is the extra cost of a relatively shallow C&C tunnel under the Mall if we're already tearing it apart? How much longer would each block be closed/affected compared to just a street re-do? Can tunnels carry buses for now and LR...
