Why the New Stadium Won’t Save Downtown East, and Why That’s a Good Thing

I’ve got a new post up over at Streets.mn about why the first step to successfully incorporating the new Vikings stadium into downtown Minneapolis is to admit that the stadium itself won’t inspire the kind of development that characterizes a thriving downtown (for proof of this, take a walk through the sea of parking lots surrounding the Metrodome). I’ll have more up here a bit later that gets into more detail about the tailgating issue (you can only squeeze so much into 600 words) that’s caused a lot of concern among Vikes fans and urbanists alike. For now check out the above link—and many thanks to the folks over at Streets.mn for sharing.
