Thanks for this link. All I can say is "remarkable".

Re: Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant Redevelopment

Does anyone know if they used the Ford spur RR to they remove all the construction debris from the site?

Re: Suburbs - General Topics

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but another Chick-fil-A is going in, this time in Eagan. Located off Yankee Doodle next to the TCF bank near Byerly's.

Also, Al Bakers will be torn down and a 4-story Holiday Inn will take its place.

Re: 2014 Election

If Jeb decides to run I don't see how he doesn't get the nom. He's got built-in fundraising. He's a more eloquent speaker than W. and also can speak fluent Spanish, which obviously would help pull in some votes.

Re: Robert Street Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

Continuing my recent trend, here's my "Inver Grove" concept: - Original idea was the ca. 1991 Scoping Document for the "St. Paul South" LRT line, followed up by the 2007-08 study of which I loosely based mine on Alternative 4. - Crosses the river via Wabasha Ave (likely an expansion of the existing...

Re: Rumors!

OK then.

Back on the topic of the convention center hotel tower, does anyone know more about the nuts and bolts of such a proposal? How far along in a project are they when images like this are produced? Are they purposefully made outrageous/striking just for the sake of making an impression?

Fuck anyone that gives Grant shit over age. And I'm not going to sugar-coat that or calm my language, either, it's not worth it.

Re: Rumors!

I've been on this board for a few months and I'm really surprised at the amount of people that act like they've never been on the internet before. Get some thicker skin, people.

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

I'm not sure what the MLS season is, but I assume it's over the summer similar to MLB. Could this be programmed in the winter as the neighborhood develops around it? It could host a few skating rinks with a walking trail or xc ski loop around them. I'm not familiar with their schedule either. Accor...

The reality of the situation at this point is that multiple people have requested they be taken down. That's all. It's a simple request.

Yeah seriously. Just tear down Target Center and save some dough.
