Another facilty to be shortly privatized with the disbanding of this excessive layer of government. Spend it now seems to be their creed.

Eleanore, at least with this project they're not saying it will cut your property taxes, Mpls resident. One more reason why I moved out of Mpls. Don't miss it for one second but did enjoy living there but the constant nonsense was just to much.

(article quote): "The authority’s request for proposal (RFP) called for 2,000 parking spaces within one block of the stadium that would be connected by skyway or tunnel and another 500 spaces to be located within two blocks with a dedicated walkway on game days." ---- These 2,000 parking spaces will work GREAT for tailgating. Right? What, too soon? Rybak (aka Lyle Lanley cartoon character) is giving you railgating. So ingenious.

It's amazing to watch the handouts as the kickbacks continue.

freedubay...funny thing is that I and now thousands of others moved downtown and are willing to pay the higher property taxes for the theater, sports, restaurants and other amenities that downtown has to offer. More than 80% of all new housing units in the metro area are being built in Minneapolis -- and they are at an all time high of private investment -- they must be doing something right.

I used to pay an extra $60 a week to fill up my gas tank for my commute and then to come back downtown on the weekends for entertainment - that is $3,120 per year. Sure my taxes are higher in Minneapolis, but only by $1,500....so I actually save money...plus my car is retaining more value.

We need to demand that the parking ramp contain active, pedestrian friendly uses on the ground floor. Blank walls of a parking ramp equals a dead block that will be just as much of a development/activity killer as the dome is today. Exhibit A: the full-block Gateway Ramp just a few blocks away on Washington. Is there any way the City can reach an agreement to have that ramp torn down if this new 1200-space ramp is built?

You wonder what it will really cost. The Saints stadium "pork" add-on has already said they need 8.8 mm more....

"More than 80% of all new housing units in the metro area are being built in Minneapolis"---No, they aren't.

And of course Ziggy will have an office, overlooking his new stadium, in this new building. Just like the Polad's do for "their" park.
