Re: ElseWarehouse - (730 Washington Avenue North)

Does anyone know anything more about the park they are planning in the North Loop? The North Loop Association previously mentioned it was to be discussed at a future meeting in October. Thanks.

Re: Minneapolis & St. Paul Fantasies and Speculations

Thanks Avian! I love it! I've always thought a park east of the downtown core could help spur further development. I like the idea of turning the armory into a market/indoor market. Then a park north or south could be used for vendors with seasonal produce, crafts, etc.

Bridges

Not exactly sure where this thread should go, but was wondering if anyone else is interested in posting pics of their favorite bridges across the Mississippi in MN? Was thinking it should be limited to the metro area, but open to statewide as well.

Re: Calhoun-Isles Redesign

Love it, but aren't there other areas where a land bridge would be even more beneficial? How about the Lowry Hill Tunnel near Loring Park and the Sculpture Garden? I know there is also a plan to create a land bridge over I-94 that would connect Fairview Park(?) in North Mpls. to the Mississippi.

Re: New Target Building - (1001 Nicollet Mall)

I like what they did with the building, and for the most part I like Target as a company and having it's corporate headquarters downtown. What I don't like is the elitist attitude among its workers downtown. Kinda get the feeling of a cultish environment. I agree with earlier comments - its great to...

Re: Nicollet Mall

Not a whole lot of info, but a glimpse of what the city may have in store for Nicollet - curbless, no buses/taxis, a new streetcar, more green.

So many of the grand homes around Loring, Washburn Fair Oaks and along Park Ave. have been lost. So sad. Not just in Mpls, though. Even in other large cities.

Re: Minneapolis & St. Paul Fantasies and Speculations

@ Min-chi-cbus: I agree safety is always an issue with free public spaces (hence why Mpls. is so behind and hesitant about creating new ones). However, I was thinking that the park could be fenced in/gated, with gates closed locked at 9/10 PM. Chicago has several parks like this and seems to work. A...

Re: Minneapolis & St. Paul Fantasies and Speculations

New idea that would involve improve Hennepin Avenue and create more greenspace. How about doing away with the surface parking for First Baptist Church (1021 Hennepin Avenue) and turning it into a small park? Perhaps a shared investment by the church and the school across the way for the school kids ...

I am all for new retail/businesses on Nicollet. Like the idea of a Goodwill, etc. as long as it's kept up. Also like the idea of extending the greenway through the block. I still don't get it! I thought the city put a halt to parking lots for new developments. There is plenty of parking. Don't membe...

Re: Westminster Church

Never a huge fan of 1221. It may be sensitive to the church, but I don't think the building or plaza interacted well with Nicollet. Perhaps if the ground floor had some type of cafe w/ outdoor seating. The area is always so dead. Excited about Dayton being involved. However, I wish we'd stop tearing...

Re: Developing Nicollet Avenue/Stevens Square

Always thought the area could use a nicer full service grocery store. I had hoped that back in the day Kowalski's would have invested in the area, but perhaps a bit too expensive/upscale? Trader Jones would seem to fit the demographics of the area - younger 20 somethings, college students, immigrant...
