Audubon Society presses stadium authority on bird safety

The shape of the Minnesota Vikings stadium is beginning to rise above the construction pit on the east side of downtown Minneapolis. The building will feature enormous transparent surfaces to let people inside the stadium see the downtown skyline, and to let those outside feel some of the excitement of what’s going on inside.

Book review: Keystones of the Stone Arch Bridge

Two Minnesota icons that I hold most dear are the Minneapolis neighborhood where the Mississippi River pours over St. Anthony Falls and runs along St. Anthony Main, and the candy that rolls out of Pearson’s in St. Paul. When The Minnesota History Center folks sent me a copy of Carolyn Ruff’s “Keystones of the Stone Arch Bridge” I spent many delicious hours delving into both. Summer is beginning to wane and the kids have another month before school starts: August is the perfect month to grab a Nut Roll and explore Minneapolis history.


Made Here showcases Minneapolis street art

Made Here is an ongoing street art festival sponsored by Hennepin Theatre Trust and Andersen Windows. It launched Friday night (July 11) with performances, great food and a tour of visual art stationed around downtown Minneapolis. As a lover of street art, I think it's fantastic. Street art gives people an opportunity to stop and pay attention. It spurs conversation. In a climate where we run from our car to the building to car because it's too cold to stop, it's fun to have an excuse to get out of the car, to visit downtown and to dawdle on the way to a meeting or appointment.


A Minneapolis housing boom explainer

Minneapolis is hot! The Metropolitan Council recently noted that we popped back up above 400,000 residents after adding almost 9,000 people between 2012 and 2013. The area along the Midtown Greenway has been completely transformed in the past decade–eleven separate projects, ten of which are residential, have been built along its Uptown stretch since 2004. There are residential towers sprouting in Downtown Minneapolis, Loring Park, and the University of Minnesota area.

After opening last August, a citywide bicycle project is nearing completion with a new connection between the University of Minnesota’s campus and downtown Minneapolis.


METRO Green Line Opening Day

06/14/2014 (All day)

The METRO Green Line will officially open at 10 a.m. on June 14. There will be community celebrations at nine stations along the Green Line throughout the day on June 14, and you can ride any Metro Transit service – buses, METRO lines and Northstar commuter trains – for free on Saturday and Sunday, June 14 & 15. Free Green Line buses will provide frequent supplemental service between stations.

Party on the Green Line for June 14 opening day

Test trains have been moving along University Avenue for weeks in anticipation of the June 14 Green Line launch.

The rides are free, and there’s a party at every stop. In fact, the festivities associated with the opening of the Metro Transit Green Line on June 14 amount to one long linear carnival celebrating the uniqueness of the neighborhoods along the light-rail route.


Are we ready for the Green Line?

After five years of getting ready, the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative says yes: we're ready and the Green Line is (finally) almost here. Business, jobs, housing, transit access and investment were all up for discussion April 23 as the Collaborative presented the 2014 Central Corridor Tracker Report at its fifth annual stakeholder event at St. Paul's Union Depot.
