Linden Ave & the Basilica



There's been a bit of confusion about the proximity of the proposed Linden Ave. stadium location and the Basilica (I'm told the Pioneer Press said it was 300 feet away). I was in the area today, so thought I would share some photos that might give people a bit more understanding.

First is taken from the corner of Linden Ave. W. and 16th St. N.

Sorry for the bad back-lighting, but I couldn't do much about the time of day. If you can make it out, in the foreground is a parking lot, then you can see the an elevated bit of 394. On other other side of that is another parking lot, another street, a Kipp academy, and then the Basilica (which you can see in the background).

Here's the view looking the other way:

This one is from Laurel Ave. and 16th looking north. The Kipp academy and the Basilica are actually behind us, to the south of here. The stadium would be on the other side of the elevated stretch of 394 you can see in the background.

Anyway, the bottom line to me is that adding a stadium here might complicate parking for Sunday church services, but it wouldn't be encroaching on the Basilica in from an aesthetic or structural point of view. It's a good, solid city block plus a multi-lane freeway away.
