Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

walked past this water works area yesterday and it looks amazing. still under construction but beautiful what they've done. in fact, i can't recall a time when the downtown riverfront looked better. that new pathway connection from the north loop to the riverfront is also awesome. and add in the new...

Re: Target Center Renovation

fantasy plans for redevelopment of target center? umm the city just put in tens of millions of dollars to renovate it. it's going to stay as a space for events, concerts, whatever, even in the unlikely even the wolves leave, which i doubt they can as the team signed a lease like in 2015 or something...

Re: 17 North Washington - CA - 27 stories - ~300'(?)

really like this design. thankful developers keeping faith in downtown in spite of the fear mongering going on in our pathetic local media.

Re: CPM Lake Calhoun Condominiums - 3017-25 East Calhoun Parkway

Re: AC Marriott Hotel (401 Hennepin Ave / Andrews Hotel site)

AC hotel i mean... the gay 90's ownership doesn't care about their exterior because the city doesn't press them on it.

but both of these buildings are shabby bookends on hennepin ave.

Re: AC Marriott Hotel (401 Hennepin Ave / Andrews Hotel site)

the hennepin side of this building is just bad... does the planning commission just not care about pressing developers on materials anymore? the facade looks like black cardboard.

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

what is the issue here. I've walked across the bridge.. it's perfectly fine. the entire plaza feeding into the commons park is great and such a vast improvement to this end of downtown.

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

at the open house, upon exiting the stadium they had the plaza gated in such a way as to funnel people to use the bridge to cross Chicago unless you wanted to walk over towards the ticket office area and cross that intersection there.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

The seats I found were a little snug for my large frame, but they do their job. I also happened to like how they're not bolted to the bowl, but through steel rails. Still they make me wonder how they'll fare when 70,000 seats are needed for Super Bowl LII. I'm not sure what there is to like about t...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

yea the logistics weren't great. had everyone lining up for the metal detectors and then once inside you hit a choke point as they didn't allow people to just roam the concourse. they funneled everyone up to the top level...creating log jam at escalators that weren't working. then another choke poin...

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

it's a permeable surface... softer. they had a kids climbing thing on one of these areas. there's also apparently an area on the 5th st side to let your dog do his/her business.
