Re: Vikings Stadium

Hey, John, if you do go could you pitch my Norse/Scandinavian theme? I'm in Boston and so can't do it myself. I still think the upside-down viking ship ala Lillehammer would be awesome. :)

Re: Bottineau Corridor (Blue Line Extension)

TC I like your ideas, especially the infill stations! I agree with Elf that the whole situation does seem like a catch-22. However, if we must go with the, building the train "wrong" option, what else can we do to make it less wrong?

Re: Vikings Stadium

Hahha True. But it is possible to be a bit more lax. People openly drink on Hennepin during the pride parade.

Re: Bottineau Corridor (Blue Line Extension)

Cheers Mulad. This is exactly what I was looking for. For brainstorming purposes, do you, or anyone else, think it would be possible to make the station more accessible so people would be more open to the GV alignment? What are some possible ideas.

Re: Bottineau Corridor (Blue Line Extension)

How alienated would people feel? It just seems like most of the people who want to do the Penn Alignment don't live in the neighborhood. Could someone post a link of people in North Minneapolis who want the trains down Penn? I like the GV alignment because it brings people closer to Theodore Wirth P...

Re: University of Minnesota

Fish, do you include Administration salary when you say no salary? I have always thought it off that the U of MN pres makes more than the US pres.

Re: Green Line (Central)

Does anyone have any insight on the viability of creating a line from the U to the mall of america without having to transfer at DTE station? I suppose this would bullocks up the scheduling to no end but it would be cool.

Re: Arterial Transit Corridor Study ("rapid bus")

Just as a brainstorm, I think it would be cool if we invoked the Mississippi in our branding. Any ideas on if that could be possible? Unfortunately all I can come up with is Miss or Trickle hahah. Maybe Rush?

Re: Transit News and Happenings

I read the transit article and was a bit confused, it seems more like they are lowering service on Route 2. Also, why would they increase service for the schools? Would this be for the staff members, or is MPS having issues with bussing and need to use Metro Transit to supplement student bus service?

Re: The Edge on Oak - (406 12th Avenue Southeast)

On that note, I should take my own advise and say why I like this building haha. I think it add appropriate density to the areas and I actually don't mind the color scheme. I think the brick patten (whether fake or not) and metal pieces add a cool industrial look to the building. :)

Re: The Edge on Oak - (406 12th Avenue Southeast)

Foto, thanks for your specific complaints. I mean this with all sincerity as it allows me to see what people dislike instead of just the sweeping "it's hideous" statement. I think FISHMAN is onto something. When folks dislike aspects of the building, could we be clear on what aspects we dislike? I t...
