Re: Star Tribune Blocks

...It would be cool if they could save the facade... It's been talked about plenty. Actually a little surprised there hasn't been any public outcry, although I think many assumed it would be torn down. How about this, with say a future tower rising behind it built on the back of the Jail. :) http:/...

Re: Mobile Version?

If we did add it to the forum we would likely have to charge somewhere between $2 and $5 for it to recoup costs from our end.

Hey Shawn:
Is there a chance we could install the 'Tapatalk' plugin.
I'd prefer to use a standalone app if possible rather than using my slow browser.

Re: Vikings Stadium Legislation/Financing Package

Can anyone remember the one other example of this type of financing discussed when they passed this? I thought it was in Iowa, but can't find it. Anyway, it failed miserably too. My contention has always been, where's the logic in handing out $300 dollar devices @ a bar? Seems like there is plenty o...

Will 4Marq be that bulky? It's m b p's model of 4Marq, which looks pretty accurate. It is longer than it is wide. I had somebody ask, so I finally got SketchUp connected to Google and uploaded the Model if anyone wants to play around with it. ***It's not perfect, just an estimate. ***Hide the Strib...

^^^ Isn't there a good sized rail loop out the back of the OMF that will take up a large portion of the rectangle framed by 4th, US52, and your blue line?

Re: Vikings Stadium

Three quick pointed observations: 1. Most obvious the North roof pitch being completely solid would look better if it were broken up in anyway; streaks of windows, a running crease or two coming out from the West peak down to the East. 2. The East entrance apex looks like a lonely portal in a back a...

Any chance the "retail component” would be something bigger like a City Target, or the REI w/climbing wall (views of the new stadium and dtwn through glass atrium as you climb :) )?

Honestly, I don't think that people are as rabidly ideological about transit as the Strib comments section would lead you to think. Exactly... Which is why it's a low hanging fruit this year. The DFL has two years of control, they're trying to get the "unpopular" things out of the way this year, li...
