Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

[/quote] The concept of using downtown circulators to connect to suburban transit services has been tried and has failed [/quote] I don't know if you consider this to be the same thing, but I would guess that a solid 50% of Northstar riders get on Blue/Green Line after pulling in to Target Field.

Re: Introductions

Well I didn't know this thread existed so I'll fill it out - My name is Josh and I'm an architect. Consequently all of my friends are architects and that's how I hear about things coming up the pipeline - because they designed them.

P.S. We need a thread on what our usernames means.

DanPatchToget? Tmart?

Or at least how you imagine your username is pronounced.
This.

And jobs. I'm curious if this is most people's hobby or life.

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Hey, construction guys! Is it possible to rescue a building with this sort of damage at a non-prohibitive cost? (And yes, I realized that "non-prohibitive" is a relative term.) They can shore up the foundations and stabilize the building, slightly similar to when Junction Flats damaged its neighbor...

Rents are actually decent
Can you point me to where that is on the website? Or did you email for more info. In which case, what are the rents like?

The bedrooms are pretty small. I haven't seen a 7'-11" dimension on a new build in a long time.

Re: Ford Plant Redevelopment - Highland Park

1) I think the amount of housing units will be flexible - nobody will remember 15 years from now how many they were allowed. Maybe they will? Who knows.

2) I try to leave a positive comment on every urbanist strib article now without reading all the hateful ones. Its going medium.

Being able to afford those half floor / full floor units would be the ultimate life goal.

Thanks for funding the site, Grant. Couldn't happen without you.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

I honestly thought the revision would have dropped by now - so they could have a few days of staffed "replies" before the weekend. If it is later in the week, media has all weekend to really say what they want. Unless it is no longer going to be released this week?

As much as I would like to see that happening, I don't see it being likely since they seem to only be interested in routes in between 200 and 300 miles long and Zip Rail is either to short if you just go to Rochester or to long if you want it to extend it to Chicago.

Saw a rendering of a losing bid for the air rights above Central Station on the Green Line today. Can't share much but I'm hoping whoever beat out the kick ass design I saw has an even better design. Fingers crossed for an announcement.
