Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Informational only hearing.. We won't know if this passes or not until the very end of session. No tax bill, and this could be in trouble. Very unlikely this moves on its own.

That lot, and getting it done right, has become much more important now.

Re: Target Center Renovation

This looks a lot better. Will have to see how the final result turns out, but definitely has the potential to beautify a truly horrible looking building. It should create a move lively and inviting pedestrian experience from Target Field and the Ramps to the rest of downtown. Get more of those baseb...

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

Nearly all of the comments on the Strib article are trash (per usual), but there was one critical of James Corner that I had to agree with at least a little bit. I think there's some truth to the notion that JCFO was the wrong firm for this project. They hit a big home run with the High Line, and w...

Re: New Kraus-Anderson HQ (9th St. S/5th Ave. S)

This proposal really excites me! Hopefully really invigorates this area and brings some development to the Thrivent blocks!?

Looks like we should see some more condo projects in the next year or two if this is to be believed. Hope so.

Re: 2601 Lyndale Ave S (vacant lot, former hardware store)

Yeah, looks like the two house to the south are owned by French Meadow, so that would probably be enough to put together a larger proposal. I wonder if French Meadow would go so far as to self-brand a grocery store? That's an interesting theory! I could see something like that. More of a specialty ...

Re: Road Geek Topics

What I object to is big government telling me I shouldn't be driving a car (or drinking a large pop. Or buying incandescent light bulbs). Ironic that driving's status as the 'default' transit mode today is the result of the decisions made in the past by big government. Exactly!! HUGE amount of big ...

Re: Historic Photos

Jesus.. look at all those f*ing parking lots.. This is why I hate the nostalgia of groups like "Old Minneapolis." Just because you were young and dt in the 70s doesn't mean it was better back then. You are just nostalgic for your youth. DT is considerably better today and getting more so every month...

Some pretty good company in Fodor's. Seems like the only one that's at a neighborhood level though, so kinda interesting.. Others are countries or states or cities.
