Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Is the theater garage still planning on going back in here?

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

I live there now and I wonder if most of the speeding is due to many of the streets being one way.
Maybe, but I just remember people flying down 22nd and (to a lesser extent) 25th, and those are two-way.
I hear you on the east west streets. I forgot about those.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

I am surprised that Dallas/Ft Worth have only hosted once. Currently I think our stadium, Atlanta's new one are the 2 best stadiums in the country. The new Chargers stadium in LA will be the best though when finished. Just beautiful. Vegas has got to be the ugliest of the newest built. If you put a...

Definitely a difficult time. How is everyone doing today? I’m sad, angry, frustrated, and emotionally exhausted. Doing my best to balance being ally and taking care of myself.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

That’s interesting you say that because I had a different initial thought. I would think that having it be two way actually slows traffic down and gives it a more parkway feel. I hear what you are saying though :-)

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

At least for downtown, there are a couple buildings near the stone arch bridge who have their garage access via west river road. I get the 100 feet of road open for them from Portland to the lot entrance. (Full disclosure my parents live in one of the buildings). That being said I don’t know why the...

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

I agree with Cincinnati, Dallas, Tucson, and Atlanta, but I was under the impression that the KC Streetcar was a success. Based on the wikipedia link you gave, it has a higher average daily boardings per mile than a lot of LRT systems. That being said, I am comparing them to other systems on that li...

I would prefer to have people in the building than not.

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Is there anyway to confirm that people are buying these units to live in as opposed to money storage. While I don’t think this is necessarily that case, it’s still a concern in the back of my mind.

I’m not really feeling the huge parking lot behind the building. That being said, I do appreciate that it is behind the building at least, and adjacent to railroad tracks.

39.6 Million Passengers used MSP this year! More impressively, I think, is that 63% of passengers originated here as opposed to connected through here.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I keep reading that there are 8 tunnels on the SW LRT. Can anyone shed some like on this, because from watching the flyover video, I only count two.
I believe that they are referring to the pedestrian tunnels along the corridor as well.
Got it. Cheers. I hadn’t even thought of those lol.
