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

I agree. It seems like that the walls of bullshit built up the MPD over the decades to defend egregious actions of its staff are going to fall. End the Stanek rule. Renegotiation of the police union contract that will have broad public and institutional support. Only the most hardcore reactionaries ...

Re: MSP Airport

It took 18 years for passenger levels to get back to pre-9/11. This may be longer than that.

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Transportation is the largest proportion of co2 émissions in the US. By my estimates 5 times greater than concrete and steel production. Concrete production releases significant co2, but only wood releases less, due to the very low embodied energy of concrete. More inventive use of timber the better...

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

They really need to find a way to have a some soft of vendors. It would like a 30 minute walk for any kind of refreshments. Seems like every good pier runs utilities out the furthest point for shoppes and restrooms.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

It's kind of wild that the CB2 and LA Fitness corners are entirely new parts of the complex (replacing old buildings) within the past decade. And they don't include a vertical housing or hotel or even office component. In the case of CB2, I seem to recall the previous building had multiple storefro...

Across the northern city limit of Milwaukee there are literal farm fields. So yeah it’s much more suburban than Minneapolis.
