Re: Embarrassing Confessions of Urbanists

I enjoy riding the designated Cedar Lake Trail detours for the amusement value alone:

“HAIRPIN!!!”
“What the… did I just ride through somebody’s gazebo?”
“Hey, I've never seen the sun come up in the West?”

Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

I wish I could say that building does something for me beyond making me miss Bar X Espresso.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I can't imagine circumstances where the building housing Noodles and Company on the Target block goes away, much less Target itself. Those prime outlots facing University have sat vacant for a looong time. (And you are right, Qhaberl - that Target does very well.) As far as the Midway Marketplace bl...

Bus Destination Signage

I am wondering if anyone here is familiar with transit systems using more sophisticated destination signage on their buses than what is currently used by Metro Transit. One of the major reasons people are hesitant to take buses on an unfamiliar system is the fear that they could end up... somewhere ...

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

I love the way they show pedestrians casually crossing Snelling at the Hague Ave. intersection. Even crossing with the benefit of a signal at Selby can be an adventure at times!

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

It's too bad they can't accelerate the long-term plan (if it is still being considered) for extending Shields Ave. through what's left of Midway Center and across to Hamline Ave. It's close enough for B Line (and Route 21) to Green Line connections but out of University Avenue traffic.

Re: Raymond Station area developments

It looks like Exeter Group (developer of C&E Lofts, Custom House and Cobalt) bought the SOS Office Furniture building at 2441 University last June. This will definitely be a property to keep an eye on!

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

Just a couple of months ago, Pawn America was going through the permit process to reopen their store at University and Fry. Now TOLD Development is proposing construction of a new bank building on this site. Aside from the fact that it is not a pawn shop, this is a disappointing proposal (a 4,700 sf...

The Pioneer Press article gives the most info I've seen yet on the plans for both Big V's and Hot Rods (Midway Saloon and Gibson's) including a rendering!

I can't find any past posts on "Liffey on Snelling" but it may not matter... The construction trailers that have been collecting graffiti for the past year have vanished and the most recent permit (Architectural Review) is "On Hold". For what it's worth, the website is still active... http://liffeyo...

Bus Stop Brewhouse looks really cool, and is apparently intending to be open for next Sunday's Vikings game. I'll believe it when I see it. Given that this is how the place looked on Tuesday, I expect that won't be happening. But I am really looking forward to the end results! https://i.imgur.com/9...

It looks like FireBox Deli may be opening a location in the old Garden of Eva building on Marshall and Snelling.

I have never really understood Trader Joe's. It doesn't have the breadth of product range I expect from a "supermarket" but can't make up for that lacking with anything significant in the deli, meat or produce categories. That said, I did buy a couple of items on their opening day. Working nearby, I...
