Re: Hiawatha-Lake - Minnehaha - Downtown Longfellow

Raising Canes is hoping to take over the old Arby’s spot at Hiawatha and Lake. Too bad there might be another drive thru right next to a transit station. Hopefully the city can find a way to block this. https://thedevelopmenttracker.com/mpls/news/raising-canes-to-open-third-minneapolis-location?fbcl...

Re: Midtown Greenway Trail [not the transit thread]

In council member Cam Gordon’s newsletter apparently the Minnesota Commercial Railroad wants to request state funding to repair the short line bridge. If the bridge is repaired or partially rebuilt there appears to be a real opportunity to add a shared use trail to the bridge and extend the Midtown ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Related to the lowered river levels, the US Army Corps of Engineers is also looking at removing the locks and dams in Minneapolis. The lowered river levels should give a good idea of what the Mississippi River would look like if they removed the locks and dams. https://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/MplsLoc...

Holiday is proposing to rebuild the gas station at the corner of Hiawatha Ave and 46th St. It will be at the planning commission next week.

Edmund Blvd

Should Edmund Blvd be renamed? Why do we have a street named after the guy who likely created the first racial covenant entered into a property deed in Minneapolis?

Re: Lowa46 - 46th & Hiawatha Cub Foods Mixed Use

It seems like along Hiawatha Ave would be the ideal location, but that would require relocating a lot more towers.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

The bike/pedestrian trail is only 12’ wide? That does not seem wide enough for both bikes and pedestrians. Why can’t they squeeze some space out of the 15’ northbound lane and the 6’-8” boulevard to get the trail closer to 14’ or 15’?

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

They did appeal. Zoning and planning committee delayed their vote. I would recommend writing your council member if you want this drive thru stopped.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

Also, there's no bike lane here...it's a right turn lane. If there ever were a bike lane on westbound 42nd, it would be sandwiched between the westbound lane and the right turn lane, not along the curb. Technically you are right, but there are bike lanes directly east and west of this specific site...

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

A drive thru would be absolutely terrible. You only have to look at the car bucks at Snelling and Marshall in Saint Paul to see what would happen here. Traffic would back up waiting to get into the parking lot, the bike lane would constantly be blocked, and it will be a horrible entrance for pedestr...

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

I think they could find plenty to deny this project. The proposed Uhaul project just across the street, which was also very auto oriented, was just recently denied.

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Planet Fitness is looking to move into MInnehaha Mall. Too bad they can’t rethink this entire area and the massive surface parking lot.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

Would be great to see something cool go in there. Great opportunity for some sort of adaptive reuse project.
