Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station/Lander Development

Someone posted in our block's Facebook group that Sister Sludge coffee (from Bloomington and 46th) will be moving into the old Social Dance Studio space at 38th St & 23rd Ave S.

Re: Cedar Ave - Nokomis Area

Confirmed - Colossal is moving to where Pilgrimage was on 38th street. They'll be closing the current location in 3/31 and opening the new one a few months later. They also plan to do something (not disclosed) with the current location. https://www.google.com/amp/twincities.eater.com/platform/amp/20...

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station/Lander Development

Remember also that there are some 600+ units going in near the Lake and Hiawatha station (either recently opened, under construction, or planned for the next few years). That may limit what could go in at these stations with much fewer bus routes/demand.

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station/Lander Development

For 3828: it looks like a little bit of site prep has been done in front of the house on 28th that'll be taken out. Also, what appears to be utility work is being done on 28th in front of both buildings that'll be demolished

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

As a Minneapolis resident, I love to see all these projects in Saint Paul too! It's nice to see, supports businesses in both cities, and all this development near the green line helps keep cars off the roads. Maybe the core cities will be up to a million people (total) in 50 or so years!

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

It's also worth pointing out that even if the electric car is currently powered by coal or natural gas (making carbon emissions not much different than gas cars), some long-term carbon benefit comes from incrementally improving the infrastructure for lower-carbon transportation.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

With this and the new towers by the river (Legacy and Encore), I wonder if US bank stadium will even be very visible from the river or the 35W bridge in a few years...not trying to place value on that but just curious.

Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

Cool map! I wonder if we'll ever get to a point where any first ring burbs want to be annexed. The only way I see that happening is if a burb is in some sort of financial trouble and Minneapolis has grown enough to broaden its tax base and lower rates and/or improves services enough. I'm sure there'...

Re: Stadium LRT Station, Ped Bridge & Plaza (MSFA block)

Will the bridge allow for walking from one side of the tracks to the other, or just from that side of the tracks (westbound/northbound) across Chicago Ave? My impression is no, but I'm not sure if I'm missing something...
