Re: Rumors!

Also, if June was posting in forums for other cities before Minneapolis, this person must truly have significant knowledge of Commercial Real Estate locally along with amazing amounts of time on their hands. Look at some of Texas's earlier posts. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/search.php?searchid=20...

Re: Rumors!

I'm convinced that all of the Linkedin profiles were made by the same person. They're all too similar, and try and find any of the people online, other than on Linkedin. Also I'll say that probably more than half of texas re's posts on SSC were on the Minneapolis thread, and almost exclusively for t...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Am I the only one who thinks a development that "straddles" the station would really hem in those platforms and make this station feel too closed in? I hope to see development, but something that really focuses on keeping this station open and connected on all corners. Wouldn't it essentially becom...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Here's the view from the parking ramp near Central Station in St. Paul on Saturday. Love this spot! https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7402/16369118085_ed10feea3e_z.jpg Great pic! Are there plans for anything to go into that triangular empty space next to the station or is it just going to stay an open...

Re: Rumors!

Hey everyone go click through the first few pages of this thread I think that the United States Capitol will be moved to Minneapolis in the next couple years. This is a good prediction and it makes a lot of sense to me. The time is right for us to move our federal seat of government and build a new...

(Side-note: The page for Rick Christenson, aka Rick Christenson , is equally untraceable.) I think you meant to put "aka retiredbanker". But yes this is so baffling to me as well. The only thing I don't get is the motive. Why? Edit: apparently R etiredBanker written as one word defaults to his name...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Most stadiums are surrounded by blocks of parking and are far outside the urban core, while ours is within 2 blocks of the CBD and will eventually/already is surrounded by new highrise development. My first instinct was to agree with you, but I found this chart which reveals it's actually a pretty ...

Speaking of semi-open air stadiums, has anyone seen the fly through video for Atlanta's proposed stadium? Their retractable roof is pretty awesome. EDIT: Link below. Also, I guess to relate it to us... it's too bad we couldn't have done something more along the of their roof to achieve that open ai...

What was the justification then? Admittedly I'm not super familiar with both sides of the issue, I just know it was shoved in to the budget bill last minute.
