I mean, it's literally next door to a big parking ramp.

True, but that is a 30 year old parking ramp they don't own and can't control the costs of. What kind of selling point is that? "We have no parking, but there is a parking ramp next door. We cannot tell you how much parking will cost, or that the ramp will even be there in a year". If you are going to build a project, you are going to build adequate parking for your tenants.

I mean, who can see the future? Every other post on this forum suggests that Minneapolis will have eliminated cars by 2040, so problem apparently solved.

But seriously, if the developer thinks they'll have more demand for parking spaces than they're building, they can very easily negotiate a long term parking contract with the ramp next door. And if you're not using your car daily, as I suspect will be true for a significant fraction of the residents, it might be attractive for those renters to pay a lower monthly parking fee for a mildly less convenient parking option.

Market forces should naturally allow for allocation of parking and prices according to needs and demands. Yes, the ramp next door might come down someday, but there's always somewhere else to park. Might be a bit farther away and more expensive, but that is exactly how we ween off our SOV addiction in the long run.

This is at the Planning Commission now. No changes from the CoW.

Along with the 240 Portland development, a big week for long-suffering short towers. Wonder if they'll actually get built this time.
