Re: Car Ownership

The graph is taking every july into account and it looks like the only reason why only the latest july is shown is because its the end point of the data. The graph is very misleading in starting at 285K and making the 10k rise look like an insane spike though.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

Today ConAgra foods from Omaha (a fortune 500 company) moved it's HQ to Chicago. Fun fact: Omaha tore down a huge historic warehouse district to keep ConAgra there back in the late 80s. Great investment! And what they replaced it with is an absolute embarrassment. Great legacy they're leaving Omaha.

^^ Pretty sure that crane you're seeing is at HCMC, but I haven't been over there in a few weeks so I might be mistaken.

Re: Car Sharing / Rental (Car2Go, HourCar, etc.)

I worked for Car2go for a bit and they have a system that flags any cars that are parked in the wrong areas and there is a team of drivers whose job it is to move them. The more at risk the car is to getting a ticket or towed the higher the priority. If it does get ticketed or towed tho, the last ac...

Re: CPM Cheapo Site proposal - 1300 West Lake St

The "soon this will be just a memory" caption of the picture of the cheapo back parking lot is laughable! And for some reason calling everything condos always irks me. All in all a terrible article. Didn't go96 "gentrify" b96?

Re: Opposition to new Development

In fairness, we are talking about a 20-story tower in a low-rise neighborhood directly adjacent to a wildlife refuge. I can understand why there might be opposition to that. Its across the street from a 20 storey high rise and the nature center is across the lake, by more high rises. I get the sent...

Says they already employ 3,600 people in La Crosse county, so the 3,800 number most likely includes many already employed by Mayo.
