Re: MSP Airport

Apparently Delta has applied for Summer flights to Reykjavik. Not sure if the market can really withstand two airlines flying to Iceland, and Icelandair has better connectivity, so we'll see what's going on with that. I don't think there was ever an update on this one. U.S. airline Delta has cancel...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

I really, really like the Duval proposal, but I sort of wish it was built closer to the core. I think it's architecturally interesting, but it towers over some of the other buildings in the area is a way that feels unnatural, I think it part because it's separated from other skyscrapers, with very ...

With the Wilfs now jumping into this months after the deadline. What are the chances this moves forward? Legally this seems pretty muddy.

Re: Black helicopters downtown

The training was planed months ago or even longer. The very same training ...

I doubt there is much call for it, but there could be better way-finding for pedestrians on Washington Ave to find the Ceder-Riverside station. Or even at the Cedar/Riverside intersection. Until the first time I walked from the C-R station into the neighborhood proper, I only had the vaguest idea t...
