Raymond Station area developments

The Raymond and University area has had a strong attraction to redevelopment projects and proposals. I’m certain more will be coming. I felt it worth getting a thread for them. Starting with a proposal for 120+ rentals in a mixed use proposal at 2250 University. https://finance-commerce.com/2019/02/...

What updates do you think that page needs?

Maybe it would be worth a post, line by line, auditing the language on that page.

Re: Washington Square - 20, 100, 111 Washington Avenue S

I work in the 100 building now. It is a real pleasure that it has really nice, practically unobstructed, views of the urbanizing city from so many sides. Especially nice views of Washington Ave in each direction. I really like the lobby and I wish I had more time to eat at Penny’s. Their sweet crepe...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

First week riding the bus observation: the stoplight timing going south on Marquette at Washington is a bit of a cluster. Seems impossibly short to get the express buses that pick up at Marquette and 2nd through. Ridiculously backed up.

Re: Midtown Corridor Rail & Lake Street aBRT (B Line)

I can’t speak for the demand down Selby into Downtown, but I can imagine a lot of network benefits connecting up to Xcel Energy Center and Lowertown sharing the Gold Line station loop. The notion of another line stopping at the Union Depot has to give Union Depot fans some excitement.

Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I think an argument would be of statewide fairness. If a state is going to aid services (local public bus services) across the state but carve out a single county from getting those funds, then we can look forward to worse future redlined derangement of other types of state funding.
