Re: Beltline Station Area – St. Louis Park

I'd imagine for the retail/restaurant its kind of unfortunate that if you are in the buildings on highway 7 it wont be visible from the light rail or bike path. Then if you're in the other buildings on the bike path side you wouldn't be visible from highway 7.

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics
