Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Or we could refer to it as the longhouse as it does resemble one on a much much more massive scale.

Re: 1401 Marshall NE

From my understanding the building is going to be the distribution hub for Kieran Foillard's (or now I guess its Jim Beam's) 2 Gingers Whiskey. Should be a great addition to the neighborhood either way.

Re: Embarrassing Confessions of Urbanists

It's a nice sunny day out, so I'm going to drive my car the half mile to the coffee shop so I can smoke a cigarette instead of biking and spend $3 on a cup of coffee when I could just as easily make it home.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

It seems as though the timing of the lights is geared towards letting the trains through the intersections. I've noticed from driving down University that they are fairly competitive, as far as speed is concerned, with driving. You can catch up to a train if it's ahead of you, get in front of it, bu...

Re: St. Anthony Main

I remember hearing someone refer to this area as Downtown Northeast and I thought that was brilliant.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I agree with the Macey's being the most exciting, although the hotel on 7th across from the X would fill a nice void. And Nathan, I'd choose choose St. Paul's architecture over Minneapolis any day.

Re: Pillsbury "A" Mill Redevelopment

I noticed that since last weekend the building has lights! Every window is illuminated at night! Looks really nice. I wonder how long it's been since they threw the switch off and the building has been siting dark on the river for all these years.

Re: Target Field Station (née The Interchange)

This is just a light-rail station masqueraded as something necessary for a future train (Amtrak/Commuter/HSR) station; it's actually an $80 million capacity project for Twins games. I think most of us have come to terms with that. But "just a light rail station" with a huge awning should at least b...

Re: Target Field Station (née The Interchange)

Does anyone know if they're going to leave the roof open like that, or will it be enclosed? Based on the renderings it would appear that it's going to be open from above, but that logic just doesn't compute for me.

Re: POLL: Name the Vikings Stadium!

if 3M takes the naming rights, could we collectively start calling it the 4MP Stadium to drop one of the M's and loose the redundancy in Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium... that's a mouth full! It could be shortened even more by calling it the 4M

It's too bad we couldn't do something like these: http://www.darkroastedblend.com/2013/11 ... lters.html Although, one of the bus shelter advertisements in the article appears to be at 5th and Washington, I'd prefer the more creative shelters...

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

Hiawatha; Hennepin and Dakota, so there was even more cooperation needed. Fairly certain Hiawatha doesn't touch Dakota county, it is entirely contained in Hennepin County. There is a bus rapid transit into Dakota that was tacked on years later but it was not part of the Hiawatha LRT line. I think h...
