every single park/ streetscape project proposed in minneapolis is drawn with a skating rink, it's just a thing they do to make it look lively in the winter. I wouldn't worry too much.JackGrayson wrote:It all sounds "okay" in theory, but I am struggling to see the feasibility in this. The ice rink idea is just plain stupid, the new exterior entrances for the retail centers are no brainers, and from what I understand the sidewalks are going to be drastically reduced in width.
And then to name the whole thing "Nicollet Island" just shows the designer knows so little about Minneapolis, he doesn't even know there is a real Nicollet Island about a mile north. I don't know why but that duplication bothered me big time.
they're clearly not from here which is a good thing. if every project in minneapolis was developed in minneapolis we'd lose any international insight and input we could have. these are labels they're using to clarify which part of the project is being discussed and less what will be printed on a flag attached to a light pole upon completion.
