Re: Star Tribune Blocks

Maybe this has been established in a previous post, but does anyone know who the architect is?

Re: Northern Lights Express

Taxi's are very reasonable in Duluth/Superior. We take ether the hotel shuttle or a cab to the Anchor bar, and although I can't recall how much that costs, it's not a lot.

If it's easy for you to bring your bike on the NLX, the Willard Munger Trail offers great access to Jay Cooke.

Re: Bottineau Corridor (Blue Line Extension)

I'm not too disappointed with the chosen routing. I think it will offer great interurban connections with future build outs of the LRT system. There are a lot of people who live off Olson Memorial who are transit dependent and with the SW Corridor connections to Bryn-mar, Harrison and the job corrid...

Re: Mortenson Apartment Tower - (400 Marquette Avenue)

I like it, it's deffinately going to shore up the wall of buildings along 4th street and make more of a stark contrast between the DT core and the gateway district. Now if only we could get a park over there...

Re: Five15 On the Park - (1515 5th St S)

And by non-public BKV means the sides of the building that will be visible to the residence of Riverside Plaza. So, they'd rather give them a concrete slab to look at everyday from their windows than something moderately nice? I'd rather leave it open grass than let BKV build a new graffiti wall on ...

Re: The Virginia Triangle (Hennepin & Lyndale Bottleneck)

Likewise, I would be in support of some kind of traffic pattern change. I wonder if there would be a way to seperate Hennepin and Lyndale all together, have them cross at ether Grovland, Vinland or somewhere in between. The alignment I'm thinking would work is keep Lyndale on the west side of 94 and...

So did you guys hear that due to higher insurance costs they've had to do a minor redesign to some of the ammenitys to save some money. Instead of having the pool on the roof they're going to just leave it in the basement... ;)

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

Could you add an extension up to Broadway and Lyndale? A stop right there would fill a massive void in the transit sphere for the city. I've raised this idea a few times on this website and frankly I'm surprised/disappointed it's received little to no intrest or discussion on any of these threads. A...

Re: 300 University (Old Home Dairy)

Yeah! What ever happened to composition? Comp is a major player in what makes art deco so appealing and other great works of architecture. I'm not saying you can't have good architecture without a properly composed site so long as it's intentional rather than overlooked.
