Re: Archive Apartments (Not West Elm Hotel & Condos) - 102-120 1st Street N

Always going to be mad about the amount of parking this has, but it does look fantastic.
Life's too short to always be so angry. And the parking numbers for this site are far more complex than what most realize.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

It was just a typo, there is no ramp, just a big fence and new shutters on their windows.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I hope it fails, it's a waste of money and our national debt is too high . The costs of these bicycles is decreasing anyhow. So why should taxpayers borrow money to subsidize something people are going to use anyhow? I don't know that demand for these bicycles is elastic enough and that the benefit...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

60 on 394 is fine. I would’ve kept the Crosstown at 55. Not many places where people are speeding on that stretch.
Exactly this.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

A lot of the “people love working from home!” stuff feels like kind of a psyop. Do they? Individual people not liking going into their offices may have a lot to do with whether or not they like their current job—not the idea of going to work in general. Most people I know are itching to be back aro...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I'm a bit skeptical that many people will choose a schedule like the one you described (three days in the office, two at home). I think it's more likely that people are fulltime office or fulltime WFH, and there are just more people in the latter category than before and more flexibility overall. I...

Re: RBC Gateway (Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 519'

Lets first start with the parking ramp as that can go first. Not sure if its the city or the post office that owns the green space on the river side but a nice tower that built into some public space there would really make that area better. Also I dont foresee the post office not having that space...

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

Walked by this morning, they’ve got an excavator on site and are digging a trench down around the perimeter. Looks like it’ll be permanent.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

Gonna go ahead and call this a loss of quasi public space. Families take their kids there a lot to just have a wide open flat space to ride their bikes and such. I'd be fine with a building going here, with park space behind, but a security fence? The Fed better reverse this stuff once they have ne...

Re: Root District - Farmers Market / Royalston Station

I'm old enough to remember when large swaths of the North Loop were just like this. Then the developers started coming, building right up along the 3rd/4th/94 viaduct, and now look at it.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I'm thankful that my company fully supports employees having their kids at home during this pandemic, and has given us tools like Skype and cell phones so we can quickly contact other coworkers when informal communication is needed.

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

all respondents will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card.
Why not receive a free all-day (or all-weekend) transit pass?
A lot of respondents already have a monthly bus pass, and caffeine is always welcome.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Why is West River Parkway open to vehicles at all? It doesn't provide access to anything that other roads don't. Just close it all.
Angry white rich car owners, plus MPB doesn't own all of the parkway.

Re: Work from home and road congestion

While many companies are managing to develop WFH in the current environment, I'm curious what the actual productivity will be. Many jobs can easily be done at home, but I know certain areas of our company are very dependent on in-person resources so numerous projects will be put on hold until we ret...
