Re: Road Crime

I found it! 42nd and Oakland. Google Maps doesn't have the bike lanes in street view, but the little green/white shed is a giveaway.

Re: Road Crime

P.S. Bike lane, parking, acorn light ... should be easy enough to find the location but I'm not there yet.

This could have gone in any number of topics, including bicycling infrastructure, but I'm going with this one.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

And toilet paper! All those shortages in the spring were because everyone had to poop at home instead of at the office and manufacturing and distribution channels weren’t set up for residential demand. It’s such a bizarre, small thing, but it’s very real.

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

Secondly: the stairs down to the lower trail from the foot of the Stone Arch bridge have been broken all summer and chained off, but there was no signage directing visitors to use the other set of stairs (closer to the A Mill) that are not blocked off. This MPRB complaint is valid all the time, not...

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

We went down on Tuesday after the kids (6yo and 3yo) were done with school. It was awesome. I also wish they'd leave it this way and take out the dam down by Ford Parkway in the process. Some late night digging around revealed the upper lock and dam is needed to maintain a water level sufficient to ...

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

During the Council meeting yesterday the Council was told they were back to square one and may have to place the station outside of the Precinct.
I'm struggling to find more info about this. What were the reasons given?

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Cool. Now they can finish building all those enormous bridges getting built over suburban stroads and wetlands. Every time we visit my SIL in Eden Prairie, I'm astonished at the infrastructure going in along 212.

Re: South Nicollet / Kingfield-Lyndale-Tangletown-Windom Neighborhoods

Seems like probably not. The units would be a mix of market-rate and affordable apartments, according to project documents. Proposed amenities in the nearly 72,000-square-foot building include a club room and fitness room off the first-floor lobby, rooftop patio and a dog washing area in the basemen...

A proposed development in south Minneapolis would replace Curran’s, a neighborhood restaurant run by the same family for over seven decades, with a five-story apartment building.

As a parent of a 5yo and a 2yo I can assure you most of us spent an inordinate amount of time begging our children to keep it down while simultaneously shrinking in embarrassment at some of the things said at high volume.

The Green Line has proven wildly successful and the combination of having both Green and Blue is starting to open eyes to the benefits of a proper rail system...
