Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

Given a finite pot of transit funds, I just don't think I'd prioritize spending on these outlying crosstown routes. I'm sure there's some degree of chicken and egg thing happening here, and I know people love the idea of building out a non-centralized transit system, but... most people still want to...

Any indication of where they're at with pre-sales?

Re: Minneapolis Parking Meters

Surly, what you've clearly failed to understand is that Multimodal will respond like this in every thread, regardless of the context. But thanks for trying.

Re: Minneapolis Parking Meters

While the demand in most of these areas probably justify these prices (or more) during peak times, it's kind of sucky that there's no mechanism to charge less on, say, a Sunday evening when there's no event going on.

Re: St. Anthony Village

It's worth remembering that the developer Brad Hoyt has a long history of being terrible, so no doubt there's plenty of blame to go around here.

Re: West Lake Street Hotel- 3012 Excelsior Blvd (8 stories, 100')

I don't think that Hennepin County has released their documents on this yet, but it looks like it will be close to what was proposed in the West Lake Multimodal study [PDF]. See page 77.

"Icky."

Regarding the slip lane -- not sure about your definition of a slip lane, but I read that to be all of the eastbound traffic on Lake Street that's continuing east after the merge in the new geometry.

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

People who are worried about parking here are missing where the true clusterf*** is going to be. They're projecting 6,300 people arriving by Green Line. That's got to be comparable (or perhaps higher) than what Vikings and Twins games see, and they're serviced by both Blue and Green Lines, and have ...

Re: Wells Fargo Redevelopment - 801 Portland - 16 stories - 180'

This could double as my response to the discussion on the Elliot Park thread on the First Covenant project, but swapping retail for housing at the ground level is a good trade. Even though the two locations are only like three blocks away from each other, I'd argue that this location is at least 50...

Yes, the same site.

Plans propose to tear down the metal shed building and the precast loading dock addition.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Interesting that they put the parking above the grocery store, not below it. Must be because of the high water table in this area?

Re: Elliot Park

Yeah, but. This always seemed like a real stretch for a retail location. Are empty storefronts better for the neighborhood than full apartments?

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Yeah, that bridge is terrible. For how much that thing is going to cost to build and maintain, and how unpleasant it's going to be to use, you could just pay off the railroad to allow an at-grade crossing.

I know it's not that simple, but it really should be.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I think the issue was that while NexTrip was using GPS data to tell you that your bus was going to be late, it wasn't using predictive technology to tell you how much later it was going to get based on known conditions. In other words, even though the system knew that the bus before yours took 10 mi...
