Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

^^^ I agree. I would like the 21st Ave Station to stay if possible. Despite being so close to downtown, Kenwood is pretty lacking in terms of bus coverage. This station could serve as an anchor to an elongated Route 2, or even more frequent Route 25 in the area.

Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I hope everyone is doing well. I read these articles on Minnpost and thought that people here would appreciate them. They are a two part series so be sure to read both. http://www.minnpost.com/arts-culture/2013/07/minneapolis-st-paul-s-identity-crisis-could-mean-trouble-our-future http://www.minnpos...

Re: Minneapolis - St. Paul Business News

I read that article but did not see any indication of moving headquarters. I understand the assumption can be made, but did the article explicitly state that the HQ was moving to Grand Rapids? Maybe Spartan Stores Inc. is now based here :-)

Re: Star Tribune Blocks

If I am thinking of the right location, such a building would also serve as a nice barrier to the prison. Nothing against it, I could just see people not wanting to hang out across the street from prison cells.

Re: University of Minnesota

Does anyone know how frequent it is for students to double up in rooms in luxury apartments. I always though this was driving some of the demand as well. It makes sense, if you are going to share a room with someone, why not do it in a nice apartment as opposed to a dorm. Four people in a two bedroo...

Public Art

Hey Friends, Whoa, my first topic. lol. I looked and didn't find a forum for this. I saw this on the downtown journal website and thought it was cool. It looks like we will have a giant mood ring for the city. It's a bit like a modern day weather ball. :) http://www.journalmpls.com/news-feed/new-art...

Re: Nice Ride Minnesota

I wonder if it would also be possible to integrate nice rides with metro transit. Maybe for a moderate increase in fare, one could option to get a transfer that would allow seamless transition from bus/train to bike and back.

Re: Latest Census Estimates - 2013

The U.S. Census Bureau has just released its annual estimates (July 1, 2012 Population: April 1, 2010 to July 1, 2012): Minneapolis - 392,880 - gain of 10,3012 since 2010 St. Paul - 290,770 - gain of 5,702 since 2010 Rochester - 108,992 - gain of 2,223 since 2010 Duluth - 86,211 - loss of 54 since ...

Re: Vikings Stadium

I guess my question is, what is there on the north or east side of the stadium that we want to embrace? Most of what is there is highway or entrances to highway. I can understand that it would be nice if that gets bridged over and developed, but I honestly don't know if that will ever happen.

This idea is awesome

Hey Everyone. I saw this on the Atlantic Cities website. While I don't know if we would have any use for it, and the reasoning for it is unfortunate, I find this idea really cool. Click the link and enjoy :) http://www.theatlanticcities.com/design/2013/05/wildly-futuristic-stop-sign-day-laser-powere...
