Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

At least for downtown, there are a couple buildings near the stone arch bridge who have their garage access via west river road.

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

I agree with Cincinnati, Dallas, Tucson, and Atlanta, but I was under the impression that the KC Streetcar was a success. Based on the wikipedia link you gave, it has a higher average daily boardings per mile than a lot of LRT systems. That being said, I am comparing them to other systems on that li...

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Is there anyway to confirm that people are buying these units to live in as opposed to money storage. While I don’t think this is necessarily that case, it’s still a concern in the back of my mind.

Re: Northside - General Topics

I’m not really feeling the huge parking lot behind the building. That being said, I do appreciate that it is behind the building at least, and adjacent to railroad tracks.

I keep reading that there are 8 tunnels on the SW LRT. Can anyone shed some like on this, because from watching the flyover video, I only count two.

Got it. Cheers. I hadn’t even thought of those lol.
