Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I noticed some jersey barriers and a rather big hole being dug at Selby and Grotto. Does anyone have any information on this project?

This is a nice opportunity that could help to bridge the gap between Lowertown and the Rice Park/7th street area.

Re: 2700 University Avenue Development

That particular Dunn Bros was the only game in town but they were never open past 6pm. If they had been, maybe they´d still be in business?

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I don't think it's the color, per se, that's giving me cheap vibes. It very well might play a role, but I think it just looks...incomplete? Not the building itself, which obviously is, but when it first started going up I figured it was some sort of insulation or other material that would be covere...

Re: O'Gara's Development - 164 Snelling Ave N

I hope Ryan Cos. gets pushback on the parking. 205 parking stalls for 163 apartments and a small amount of office and retail is excessive. This property is on the A-Line, will be on the B-Line in the future, is directly across the street from a grocery store, and is two blocks away from a daycare. ...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

A few weeks ago I saw that crews were ripping up Jackson Street in front of Regions Hospital to complete the Jackson Street bikeway that will go from University Ave to (almost) the river. What a pity that at Kellogg the trail essentially ends a block short with really no indication of how to get the...

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

I don´t see any street level retail in the plans. That´s a pity. If there was just one storefront that could hopefully become a neighborhood coffee shop, that would greatly enhance the experience of living there. Especially for senior citizens, who often don´t have an opportunity to interact with ot...

Re: University of Minnesota - General Topics & Development Map

That´s great.
Hopefully it´ll become a residential development. It´d be nice to have something smaller to offset the larger developments in the area (2700, Emerald Berry, 808 Berry, and Metro Lofts)

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Man, so we're just going to push on and pretend that Snelling Station, as is, will be capable of handling MLS crowds, huh? I think that before and after game time, to help with moving people on and off the platforms, they should allow diagonal crossing, something like they have on Colorado Blvd in ...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

There was a construction crane being erected yesterday at the worksite. There is also a parade of excavation trucks coming and going throughout the day. Impressive!

Here is an article from last month in the Strib about the (renewed) interest in connecting the Greenway into St Paul.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

For what it's worth, I happened to be in Rainbow yesterday and I asked an employee about their impending closure. He told me that the employees haven't been told anything as of yet. He implied that it's business as usual for the time being and doesn't anticipate the store shutting down any time soon.

Re: Prospect Park - General Topics

With all the new construction, (housing, athletic infrastructure, and restaurants) I wonder if a stop would ever be put in near 29th or 30th on the intercampus bus way.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I saw a picture of some jersey barriers on Snelling ave near Spruce tree lane. Is that related to the demo or site preparation?
Does anyone know when the MN legislature will be giving the project the green light (from a tax exemption standpoint)?

Re: 333 on the Park / Sibley Square

I was just wondering the same thing. It looks like they are already doing interior work, so my guess is that they will be leaving the old windows in. I like how on the Rayette building remodel, the windows can be opened.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I wonder what the point is of having a ceremonial ground breaking then with so many uncertainties.
