Excited to see this go up.
What is going on across Portland? Staging or new construction?

Re: Lake and Fremont - 15 stories

Maybe homeless people could pitch tents in the unused parking spaces? Hey can we chill out with this underhanded classist and somewhat racist remarks on the forum? That'd be cool. How is this racist? We need to stop this craziness with the race card in every argument. This is coming from a black man.

Re: Housing Market/Economics - General Topics

Also will we see more people in Woodbury take a job in Maple Grove if Work From Home is more prevalent?
I know that some people do this now, but will more people do this?

Re: Chanhassen - Chaska - Carver County - General Topics

that's too bad. You really felt isolated (in a good way) when you went to conference there. Now you will be in the Costco parking lot.
But the world needs more Costcos. :roll:

No, his inspiration was books on a shelf.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I do think we need a "Minneapolis" sign, but not sure where to put it? St. Anthony Main? Gold Medal Park? Boom Island? Bde Maka Ska? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/92/Toronto_sign_%2844247399214%29.jpg/220px-Toronto_sign_%2844247399214%29.jpg https://www.downtownindy.org/blog...

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as "Minneapolishenge" for sunsets/sunrise? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattanhenge I am thinking that Mpls might have a chance in both summer and winter and STP might in winter due to the grid alignment.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Thats understandable. I figure we could do both though. Would having an earlier bowl eliminate the chance to host the CFP national championship game? Levi's Stadium is hosting the Redbox bowl on Dec 31st and then the CFP Championship Game on Jan 7th. So yes, it can be done. Just need a Corporate Sp...

Re: Favorite Skyscrapers (old, new, proposed, cancelled)

Since not much is happening lately, I thought I would revive this thread... I thought it would be great to get the Burj Al Alam tower on the Benson Lot in Mpls. I think it would compliment the AT&T tower with the roof lines. Granted it would only be 750ft, because this is Minneapolis after all. ;) h...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Saw a rendering of a losing bid for the air rights above Central Station on the Green Line today. Can't share much but I'm hoping whoever beat out the kick ass design I saw has an even better design. Fingers crossed for an announcement.
unexpected. hope to hear more soon.

From an interview today in the Athletic with Bill McGuire: You had mentioned large green spaces and a “Great Lawn” surrounding the new stadium. Is that on track for 2019? The Great Lawn is going to be in this fall. That’ll all be done — you’ll be able to see Shields Avenue going in front of the sta...

The one that was a converted hanger in 1986 (?) prior to the current terminal 2. Google didn't help.

Here's the packet. Usually, I can spot the orientation easily, but are these buildings together facing Hawthorne, or are they an L shape with one facing the Greyhound Station and the other Hawthorne?
