Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Was in Las Vegas last month and stumbled upon this painting at McCarron International Airport. They had a number of US cities displayed according to local elementary students. Sure enough, Minneapolis was one of them. The children of Jo Mackey Magnet School in North Las Vegas are very creative to sa...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Noticed yesterday that they installed "Rough Road" signage on Ayd Mill rather than actually fixing the road :lol:

Anyone know what Carter's plan is for this road (if any)?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Metropass from Metro Transit (via my employer) reimburses up to $100/year for alternate transport (cab/uber, etc). Nice perk. Maybe they could increase that amount.

Re: Google Maps

Some suburbs seems to have updated as well... the Vikings training facility now appears for example. Appears to be early summer 2017.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

Agreed - I viewed this as sort of a one-time "favor" by the NFL to us for building the stadium.

Ford Field in Detroit (opened in 2002) hosted a Super Bowl in 2006 and there isn't any talk of them being awarded another one.

Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

Was just looking at the site on Google maps. Holy cow is the satellite image old. You'd think they'd update that with the Super Bowl coming up... I believe google maps now defaults to the 3D view which is more outdated. If you toggle 3D off, you will see a more recent image. For example, US Bank St...

Re: DTE: Wells Fargo, Radisson Red, Edition Apts & Millwright Building

Saw a 'Starbucks Coming Soon' sign in one of the retail spaces at the Edition Apartments. The one that's directly adjacent to the park.

The convenience store on the first floor of the old Retek building is closing by the end of the month. Sign in front of the store says they lost their lease.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Never saw a game at the Humpty Dome. Were the miles of chain link fence and the temporary security tents a part of that game day experience too? Seems to me that security and crowd access and flow could (should) have been an integral part of the design of the plaza, the gates and the walks. The pla...
