Re: Nicollet Ave, Lake St to Crosstown (Lyndale, Kingfield, Tangletown & Windom)

Finally, construction has started at 3329 Nicollet Ave. This is for the the live/work townhouses and apartments. Will be curious to see how the townhouses lease up. I think the developer said at a neighborhood meeting that they would rent for under $3,000 a month.

Re: Nicollet Ave / Eat Street - Whittier, Stevens, Loring Park

Speaking of the Nicollet Burger King, I want to put something cool in the parking lot for open streets this year. Any thoughts? I'm considering getting the wrestling they had on Lyndale. Also, does anyone know what's up with this? Are developers still sniffing around or is BK gonna do something? No...

New renderings for the Good Grocer project. It looks much better than before.

I like them! I think they make the building look more refined and expensive.

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

Just adding some thoughts on the Tucson experience. While ridership is pathetic (it always was going to be), I think it is a solid test case for streetcars being a catalyst for development. There has been a considerable level of development along the Sunlink (especially for Tucson standards). This i...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

Even if a street car wasn't allegedly still on the table, I don't think anything meaningful would happen on Nicollet/Central until the K-Mart is gone. Since Sear's/Kmart's death looks more imminent by the day, it is an even more attractive reason why we should just wait before doing anything. Truly ...

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

The more I read about it the more worried I get. We're much better off than Japan or China, but it's still going to be a pretty big drag. I'm thinking growth will be pretty elusive over the next 20 years. Does anybody have a reality check? Am I worrying about nothing? Even in nations like Japan/Chi...

Re: Nicollet Mall

Some flower beds/planter boxes would make a big impact. Also, while most of the birches have budded, some are definitely dead. Counted about 6 of them this morning. Sad.

Re: Hennepin Avenue Reconstruction / E Line (Uptown to Downtown)

Hennepin already has a lot of bike traffic. It would be interesting to see some counts, but I'd bet it has more bike traffic than 3rd Ave, and possibly more than 1st or LaSalle, all of which have dedicated lanes. It would be a huge mistake not to have one on Hennepin. It's like the argument people m...

Re: Southside - General Topics

That BK is way to profitable for them to close. Since corporate owns it, we might even see some remodeling to bring it out of the early aughts. There are already multiple interested parties, some of whom are already BK franchisees. There are developer types who are also interested in the property. ...

Anyone know what's going on with the Burger King at Nicollet and 34th? It's been closed for a week now. There's a sign on the door that says it will re-open, but I'm started to think something more might be going on. I haven't seen anyone onsite doing repairs/remodeling (I live nearby). Maybe they ...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

A 6 story building seems to fit in with what's already built along 9th. Usually I want more height downtown, but this doesn't seem unreasonable. Also, would HCMC have any issues with a tower on this lot? Not sure if that would make it more difficult for helicopters.
