Re: 3601 Nicollet

Fantastic news!! This area really needs residential density like this to fuel the continuing redevelopment. There's so much opportunity from Lake to 38th on Nicollet and then eastwards on 38th.

Re: Southside - General Topics

And the house/vacant storefront at 3734ish Nicollet (just north of Cinco de Mayo Mercado) has been torn down. It's a fairly wide lot. The owner of the Mercado purchased that double lot last year and already owns the vacant single lot between it and the Mercado. It'll be interesting to see what thei...

Re: Minneapolis Fiber Internet and Cable Services

Just an observation... I've been watching when the various segments go live on USI's website. The big Lyndale and Blaisdell segments went live about a week before the stated availability dates so it appears things are still running ahead of schedule. Hopefully all the purple areas on the map do inde...

Re: Maintaining old houses

Besides the obvious heat loss problem, is there some other reason *not* to run heat pipes in an exterior wall? I mean, the original builder did it. Maybe water condensation in the wall when you have a hot metallic pipe that close to the cooler exterior portion of the exterior wall? Or, maybe a rupt...

Re: Maintaining old houses

So anyone have experience moving radiant heat pipes? I'm not talking a whole sale move but rerouting an approximately 6 ft section closer to a wall and then running along ceiling a few feet. I don't mean how to do it (way above my skills), but cost and feasibility? I'm sure it's feasible I suppose ...

Hope such a widening would also be an opportunity to replace the 14th Ave inaccessible ped bridge with an accessible bike-ped bridge at 12th Ave. I don't know this for sure but someone told me that as part of the work being done on the Bloomington Ave bridge, bike-ped lanes are being added.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

62 badly needs 3 lanes as well. Minimally from 100 to 77. Ideally from 169 to 5. Is any of that on MnDOT's radar?

Any rumors on what's going on just north of Cinco De Mayo Mercado on Nicollet Ave?

Re: Custom House - Downtown Saint Paul Post Office

There were no plans to connect Custom House to the TPT building via skyway, was there? I'd imagine it would take significant internal changes to Custom House in order to do so in a convenient and usable way for the building as a whole (it would have to connect several floors up). However, the only c...

I really really hope that they won't require their own set-top box. What I'd really like to see is an option for some sort of small ethernet->coax transceiver box so that we can run coax to our existing hardware (eg. TiVo).
