Re: Mall of America

The second floor will need some very good design to not feel like a dead zone on that end-- the only major area of the mall without any atria. I do like they way they've divided things up, though I'm not sure I understand why tenants B, C, and D don't show internal escalators, because they must have...

Re: Velo apartments

Wedgeguy has it right. The limit isn't structural, it's fire related. Stick buildings are much more likely to have catastrophic fires than concrete or steel ones, and are thus limited in heights so that ladder trucks can reach the top floors. Edit: Does anyone know which corner this is on, or the ac...

Re: Fitgers Brewpub

i agree there will be issues with putting a rooftop patio there. i remember the previous nightclub had noise issues with the neighborhood group. I don't thing a Brewpub will draw the loud drunks that the previous tenant had. I see it more as a Rock Bottom than a loud nightclub!! I agree with Wedgeg...

Re: Permissions & First Posts

That ^^ seemed to work well. Should both stretch out the screen and limit it at a certain point. How does that look for everyone else? Image shows up for me in a single screen until just after 1100px by 300px. Working on a fix for this.
Works well for me.

Re: Permissions & First Posts

I believe what he means is that the forum pages themselves are limited to a certain width, and thus embedded photos only have 700 horizontal pixels displayed. I'm not looking at the admin side of things, but I would guess that is a limitation of the themes we currently have. Could be a bb limitation...

Re: Permissions & First Posts

This one seems to have went through without issue, correct? I went through earlier this morning and redid the permissions so it should be up to date with no need for moderation on any posts. Nope, it didn't. But this morning I got emails saying they were approved, and my posts seem to be going thro...

Re: 1368 LaSalle Ave development

I like to imagine them buying the Star Tribune blocks by the new Vikings Stadium. Oh man, that'd be sweet.

Re: Bottineau LRT

Great to see that we're continuing the tradition established by SWLRT of pursuing mediocrity in our routing to serve suburbanites and bypass the more dense areas.
