Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Was on campus at the U on Saturday, and the big gray side of this will figure pretty majorly into the view of the skyline from the East Bank. Hope the zinc or whatever looks nice. The Metrodome was pretty hulking when viewed from the U. I rather think this is more attractive than that, but it will ...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

There is no other stadium in the country that is like what we are getting. There are some European soccer stadiums that are similar but even still nothing with the size of ETFE roof that we are putting in. Short of making the entire roof etfe I don't know how we could have as much natural light with...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

INSANE True this. I don't think it's quite sunk in to a lot of people just how ginormous this thing is going to be (hell, already is). Not only is it going to be ridiculous to see from the outside, attending a game is going to be a far different experience than doing so in the intimate, loud, thund...

Isn't that pretty much what soccer is? They plaster advertising on everything.

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

This may have been discussed before but that piece of land sandwiched between 5th, 6th, and Chicago seems like a good piece of land to develop into something (small). It's obviously quite small but it seems like someone could think of an unique idea for it. I'm not sure if they're going to replace ...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

They also placed the first of the side trusses that branch out from the main span today, near the rear of the stadium: https://www.facebook.com/MSFANewStadium/posts/799449443448270 I noticed that today on my way back from the University. It is going up slow but sure. I'm sure this cold weather is s...

Re: Target Center Renovation

The interior renovations are much more important for Target Center's future competitiveness and profitability. The place is old and dumpy and has a subpar seating bowl. Sure but I don't' think they are doing anything major structurally to the inside. Lighting and paint mostly. I think they were goi...

Re: Target Center Renovation

If this project doesn't happen for whatever reason I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. At the end of the day you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. And for multiple reason's, interior and exterior, out Target Center is a sow's ear. Inside there is nothing wrong with the Target Center ...

Re: Updates and Changes

It will eventually go away as part of merging the two sites. There was kind of an ongoing issue with overlap between streets.mn posts and comment sections overlapping with largely the same people.

Ask yourself why almost every single city/state/region fights like hell to try and get a sports team back after they lose them. Why?

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

If this were to happen, I'd want to see a pretty substantial plan for redeveloping the entire Farmers Market / West Loop / Royalston Station area, including relocation of the Farmers Market to the Yard/Armory. That said, can the soccer team really not play at any of our existing stadiums? (TCF, Vik...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Funding at the state level doesn't work the same as mom and dad's checkbook. There is no saying that if we didn't do this we could have done that. That simply isn't the way it works.

Saying people should have to pay the full costs of their decisions is not punishing them.

There's a lot of reasons besides loving cars that people choose to live in the suburbs. Even all the freeways were toll roads I'd still live out here, so it's not a 'market distortion" that makes people want to live here and not the city. Although make it too expensive to visit the city and I wonde...
