Re: 1724-1728 Nicollet

This is an outside-of-the-box idea, but, instead of a street curb cut, would it be possible to put the garage entrance directly from I-94? It sounds bonkers, but it could be an interesting amenity that would free up street front space and provide a unique amenity to those in the building.

I had no idea about Lake Blaisedell. That’s facinating, especially since I live on the site.

Re: Duluth Residential Tower (15 stories)

While I like to see increased density, I’m kind of bummed. While I can’t speak for the inside, or the management, I actually really like the Voyageur’s external esthetic. It reminds me of those 1950’s-60’s motels on the Jersey shore.

Is there a way to remove the liability from the freight railroads? Would that even be a good idea?

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Is there any information on the affect of nicerides, lime bikes, or lime/bird scooters on local bus-route usage? I know people using Lyft/Uber in affecting ridership, I’d be curious if these other methods affect it as well, especially in the warmer months. I may be alone in this, but I know that my ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

This bums me out. To be honest though, I haven’t seen much different between this and the southwest journal for a couple years. Has anyone else? I wonder if they could just combine the news for both under one banner?

Here is a Minnesota Business Magazine article on growing Northstar ridership. It claims that weekday ridership on the line topped 3000/day in June.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

I understand the desire for retail on Hennepin and Washington, but I actually like the idea of extending that linear plaza/park that runs from the river along the east side of Hennepin. I think it would help draw people from Nicollet to the river and vice versa.

Re: MSP Airport

Just for fun (?), I made some maps of destinations from MSP on Great Circle Mapper. Data comes from wikipedia . Some destinations are seasonal, less than daily, etc... Here are flights outside the Lower 48 states, including future service and the not-100%-sure-thing service to Shanghai: http://www....

Re: MSP Airport

I think this is really exciting :-) I read about this on airliners.net. Someone there did ask about the correctness of the release stating that this would be MSP’s first nonstop to China when NWA flew to Hong Kong in the past. I would guess that the previous flight occurred before the UK returned Ho...
