Re: Minneapolis 2021 Elections - Mayor, City Council, BET, Park Board

U of Chicago, lets say has a certain reputation. The Chicago School, the "Chicago Boys", the university's police department, just generally seen as conservative and pro big business. To me seems to be a curious decision, not necessarily bad, and maybe it was the best for her. Oxford has a reputation...

I hope Shelia wins. Frey is an absolute disaster. Knuth with The University of Oxford and The University of Chicago in her bio raises some big ole red flags for me.

Re: Uptown-LynLake-Wedge - News & General Topics

Uptown retail/hospitality might go through a period where national chains and high concept high achieving concepts shun the area. Maybe picks up a bit of punk crust that some feel it once had. The location is too good to be down for long. Houses are still expensive in the area that's for sure.

Boom Island Brewery guy made up a bunch of stuff when he moved from N Mpls to Minnetonka. It happens all the time, when you've been around the block a few time you know not to take small business owners statements at face value.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I think that this is something that all areas of the country are going to grapple with at some point. The fact that there was a conviction gives some semblance that accountability can be found. Granted the area has had several high profile incidents and one that was insanely egregious.

Re: Target Center Renovation

The guys who moved the Sonics from a large and prosperous metro area to a much less affluent and smaller market, who subsequently lucked into a GM who was brilliant in the draft. Then they couldn't pay the players they drafted because they were in too small of a market. One of the Thunder owners end...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

In regards to Wells Fargo, pre COVID my wife had to negotiate in order to work from home. Her team is dispersed around the country, she would have been the only one in Minneapolis, but they still wanted her to come into an office everyday. She got lucky because she had the fully WFH setup while most...

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 ...

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: Daymark Uptown (Sons of Norway site) - 3014 Holmes Ave S

I think a premium outerwear purveyor like Marmot or Helly/Hanson would do well.
