Re: 222 & Whole Foods - (222 Hennepin Avenue)

The pictures sure make this building more bulky then I first thought. Is this a standard city block size? As much as I wanted a highrise on this block, I will say so far what I see, I like.

Re: Knollwood Mall - St. Louis Park

I am sold on the idea! Count me in as well. bapster 2006 I agree the mall feels dated. Those mirrored columns really make the place seem much older. like when they tried to renovate they ran out of cash before they could do anything with them. Off the top of my head I can not even think of the last ...

Re: Mortenson Apartment Tower - (400 Marquette Avenue)

I am exicted to see what becomes of this corner. Is this the start of trend? When this gets built will gates open up to even more and taller apartment towers? The next couple of years will really be fun to watch. :D

Re: Knollwood Mall - St. Louis Park

The mall is still very busy. Off the top of my head it has inside the mall part Kohls, Panara Bread Co., a furniture store?, Foss swim school, GNC, some sort of moble shop, TJ Maxx, and Applebees. I even might have missed a couple. It is in a high traffic area. I just hope when ever they do figure o...

Knollwood Area - St. Louis Park

I have been hearing for over a year now that they are going to "gut" this mall and turn it into a sort of strip mall. This seems like an ambitious idea. I ran into the former mall manager the other day and asked him if apts or condos are going to be added above the shops. He said "After running the ...

Re: Nicollet-Central Corridor

I love trains, as are most of the rest of those on this board I think. However I just feel like since we got rid of the street cars over fifty years ago what sence does it make to bring them back? Reading all the pros it seems to be act like a bus only with out the abilty to switch lanes. Really if ...

Re: Shakopee Rail?

I love this idea. The tracks and space are pretty much all there. However I just do not know the commuter patterns in the area really well and really doubt to many people live in Shakopee and work in down town St. Paul. I would prefer this train go to MPLS first then continue into StP. I wonder if M...

Re: Green Line (Central)

I agree completely. The best part is that much of that wouldn't actually have to be underground. West Lake to Hennepin would be in the trench, and you could cut and cover one of the residential streets (like Dupont or Bryant) rather than expensive deep bore or f***ing up Hennepin or Lyndale. THIS i...

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

Yeah, looks like the big crane will be going up here the next day or so. They have the big crane assembling boom in the street, and I have seen a couple pieces of yellow tower crane go by on LaSalle today. I am pretty excited about this tower!! Since the church I go to is on the other side of the p...

Re: Nicollet-Central Corridor

No I am not thinking of the rinky-dink trolley lines. Even if todays trolleys are not as loud, noise is not much of an issue. Since I live in a city I expect city noise. I also highly doubt a real plan for a street car line will create any more momentum then a hi frequency bus route. The plan to ope...

Re: Nicollet-Central Corridor

I do not like the idea of streetcars running on downtown streets mixed in with traffic. I feel like it is a complet misuse of transit $$. Who/why would anybody think it is a good idea to run trains that can only go as fast as the traffic around it? WE already have a "streetcar" system it is called t...

People might use it more if the train wasn't so often delayed. The Empire Builder I think is designed to travel through the Rocky M...
