$65 million for a parking ramp? Downtown does NOT need any more parking, unless it is provided at market prices by the free market.

It looks awesome, really, it does. Including it in a new taxing district surrounding the new NFL stadium and targeting everyone doing business in that district for an extra 5% stadium impact tax whether located or simply doing business within that district will go a long way toward covering the state choice to spend select dollars on a new NFL subsidy. Way to go legislators and good idea Governor!

I like it! Downtown needs help, and this is a great start. Now please address the interstate exchanges in that area! Its terrible that it bottlenecks to one lane when changing interstates. Also, open up the tunnel, 5 lanes each way

Are there going to be legal marijuana shops like in Seattle because until there are it will not be exciting or cool.

And this is where the Star Tribune finally cashes in on their years and years of slanted articles to get the stadium on the Metrodome site. They can finally sell all their land for max. profit. Even though everyone knows Arden Hills was the best site and the correct site for the stadium, this fills the Strib's pockets with many more Millions of $. Their credibility as a legitimate news source, however, is gone.
