Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

I think I have asked this before, and maybe there’s not anyone out there who has a good answer for me, but I want to dig more into transit ridership numbers. We live in the modern day of technology. Where do I go to find out what the ridership trends have been over the past six months on a specific ...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Maybe some of these buildings will eventually be taken down and replaced with more mixed use establishments.

Re: Uptown (and LynLake) Development & General Topics

I know this is it in the right topic, so feel free to put it in the place it belongs.

Does anyone know when the oldies will be opening at 26th and Lindale? Went by the building on the bus today and the outside looks mostly complete.

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 36 stories / ~400'(?)

Not to be a Debbie downer, because I’m really excited about this project. I’ve walked by the area so many times and always find myself asking, when are they going to do something with this. This is really exciting! Even though the site is a parking lot, and should not take that long to get the neces...

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

This ramp should have been wrapped in housing with significant ground floor retail. Had that happened, I would have no problem being OK with this ramp. A good example I can think of off the top of my head is some of the new Bloomington Central Station Apartments, although they did not add enough ret...

I’ve been asking myself about this project for a while. It just seems to be taking forever. I wasn’t sure if that was just me.

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 48 stories / 550'

How tall is this building? The title of the thread says that it’s 48 stories tall, but the post up thread says 41 stories.

Re: Mall of America Transit Station: Master Plan

That’s awesome! Can’t wait for it to be finished. It’s supposed to be finished at the end of July or August, correct? It will be so nice not having to look at that ugly monstrosity that currently is the transit center. It will also be a much smoother transition from the light rail to the mall. Sent ...

Re: Mall of America Transit Station: Master Plan

Got some pictures of the construction work at the new Mall of America transit station this morning. Where exactly will the new escalator from the mall of America transit station to the interior of the mall be located? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190621/740bd77f4143d916f26ba53859bda044.jpg htt...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

So they just started work on the Hennepin Avenue reconstruction from Washington Avenue to12 street. Last year they worked on the portion that runs through the Lyndale Hennepin convergence. There is a gap between these two projects. What about the portion from 12th St. to 16th St.? It’s a little over...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

It would be great to have more office space, but I don’t know if the market could take it right now. I would imagine that it will either end up being luxury apartments or condos. I’m guessing that the area is zoned for very high density because of it’s proximity to downtown and to the train station....

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I strongly agree. I wish our region would more seriously consider piecemeal expansions as money becomes available, with simpler planning and without federal money, and then using those investments as the local "match" for federal dollars when they reach that threshold. Or not, frankly. Cutting out ...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

Do the most recent state drivers test manuals cover these type of bike signals? Our bikes signal standardized throughout the country, or do the different cities have different types of signals?

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

As a follow-up question related to the different color of pavement between pedestrian walking area and biking area, does anyone know if that is the plan along Hennepin Avenue from Washington Avenue to 12 street?

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

I happen to be walking along Washington Avenue between Hennepin Avenue and fifth Avenue. It looks absolutely beautiful. They did a really good job on the redesign. It definitely makes the pedestrian feel more safe while walking along a busy street. I like that the bike way pavement is color differen...

This is bordering on fantasy map discussion, but since it relates specifically to the blue line, I’m going to put it here. Anyone out there good at drawing fantasy maps? Could anyone dry up some maps of alternative alignments? I don’t think we would end up with a tunnel. Minneapolis seems to be agai...

I was looking at some of the engineer in plans for the blue line extension. He travels and Olsen Memorial Highway for a good distance. Does anyone know if the plans are to give trains priority how long is the memorial highway? I believe the highway is owned by the state or county, they can be diffic...

Re: 800 Washington Ave - 14 stories - 173' (Guthrie Ramp liner development: Reloaded)

This is interesting. I like that. Maybe it's because I'm middle aged, but I think about risks of ownership in this building. How well tested are all these interesting elements? It says "Condominium" so I'm assuming these are owner-occupied units, and it's a lot to ask a pool of random somebodies to...
