Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

Count me as someone who uses the 46... to get downtown! It's far more pleasant of a ride to take 46 to Blue Line than it is to take a 14.

CM Jenkins reports that 42nd St will be getting bike lanes this year. Not sure about more details.

Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

I was thinking it would make sense for Rt 46 ABRT to go north from Grandview as well. Just take Hwy 100 north to Excelsior/Park Center Blvd, then 36th to the Green Line. Or maybe someday reconnect Wooddale with another bridge over 100 and route it even more direct.

Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

Since the 46 is one of the buses I use the most and the route that runs closes to my house, I love that idea. I had always thought the 46 should be interlined with the 74 or a parallel St. Paul route so that many more residents of Minneapolis south of the 53 have a one-seat commute to Downtown St. P...

Re: IDS Center

The NE corner (Marquette Hotel) is getting some sort of raised patio or planter space. It's the area that used to have their monument sign and a few tables/chairs for the hotel bar.

It was the accessible downtown restaurant for us suburban kids during high school.
Maybe this is why I don't see it as any type of loss? I remember going there growing up as a suburban kid before I had any idea what else (better) was nearby.

Re: Civic on First - Rochester

That 2nd St SW frontage looks rather inactivated given it's 4000 sf of retail right on the corner. Hope they break it into multiple storefronts. Put a door on the corner and/or on the 11th Av SW frontage to break things up a little bit. Additionally, since they're rebuilding the curb, there's no nee...

Re: Green Line LRT

It seems like we have some pretty good tech to keep transit moving... Dedicated right-of-way, dedicated lanes, existing signal technology, etc. While I'm always excited for new ways to move people even faster on transit, it seems clear barrier today is political not technological.

Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

The problem with the Rush Line approach from the north is that you have to choose... 1. Go east to SPUD and terminate there? 2. Go west through the CBD and terminate west of Xcel Energy Center like the Gold Line will? 3. Have some circuitous routing that does both? That's why I wish the Rush Line wa...

Seems like Mpls site plan enforcement has no teeth... Another example. Ken and Norm's liquor at 48th and Chicago.

Paving a surface parking lot isn't what comes to mind when I think "eco-friendly a block from a light rail station."

True, and that was a mistake. 3/4 of this full block, including the entire 3rd St frontage, has zero provision for future activity.

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

Build a second residential tower on the north side of the Fleet Farm Ramp. Carve out some parking on the ground floor for a lobby and retail space facing 3rd Street. Carve out a small area of parking on the north face of all parking levels to provide elevators and stairs to the new residential tower...
