Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I've spent the last 5 years working in downtown St. Paul and now know the skyway system like the back of my hand. I recently realized that even though I know how to get between any two points within it using the most efficient path, doing so from the outside is a challenge. I think that's due to wal...

Re: Impound Lot

It's concerning that the city encourages towing closest to the impound lot. Why? What benefit does it give to the city? My only guess is that it's a faster tow. With a limited number of trucks, the faster the tows the more cars that get towed. Unfortunately, those of us on the other side of the zon...

Re: Minneapolis Fiber

Yeah, the same fiber can deliver 25Mbps or 100Gbps and doesn't need to be re-run. However, each step up above the current highest offering does consume additional resources before it can be offered to customers: changes to software, endpoint electronics, testing, etc. These aren't free and consume t...

Re: Minneapolis Fiber

Here's another article that claims they're also working on 40Gbps and 100Gbps: http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_27194397/u-s-internet-rolls-out-faster-service-minneapolis I'd rather have them focus on rolling out 1Gbps fiber (or less) to new customers at a faster rate. Maybe it's just because ...

Re: Minneapolis Fiber

Anyone have any inkling about USI's 2015 build-out plans? The only pending/under construction indications on their webpage is Lowry Hill. I really hope they reach our house before CenturyLink.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Hot Wok Delivery has moved into the old Apho location on Nicollet & 38th. I believe it's their third location in the Twin Cities. Their website doesn't appear to be taking online orders yet: http://www.hotwokdelivery.com And they appear to be raising funds even after opening on kickstarter: https://...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Skyways serve an essential function to people who actually live and/or work downtown in a climate like ours. Without skyways the streets would certainly look more "alive" but I'd argue it might actually have a negative economic impact on the city core. It's likely far fewer downtown workers would wa...

South Nicollet Ave - Lake to Crosstown (Lyndale-Kingfield-Tangletown-Windom)

The north-east corner of 38th & Nicollet in Kingfield has been undergoing renovations behind papered windows for a couple months now. Yesterday the following was hung in the window: "Nighthawks" and "Coming Soon" along with an image of a cast iron frying pan. Anyone have any more details on this new...
