Re: Sibley Plaza Redevelopment [on hold]

This reminds me of people being excited for Sun World to take over the old Cub/Rainbow building at Seeger Square (Arcade St) rather than shooting for a larger redevelopment that could take advantage of transit improvements. Reusing/filing a badly designed strip mall is a negative in my mind, as it p...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

On the Rush Line trip to Richmond, VA, a big question came up from a Metro Transit staff person about whether or not an articulated bus can get three doors close enough to the platform to make level boarding functional. It seems that only one of the doors (front or middle) actually needs to be withi...

Re: Electric Scooters

I don't see scooters replacing car trips Why not? For a tourist, they often replace trips that might otherwise be taken by ride share. Why wouldn't that be the case for residents? I suppose this is a good point. I was thinking of privately owned cars. Still, I don't see them replacing longer distan...

Trista said she's working on it. It looks to me like a good site for industry. It's really not a visible location for retail.

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

The next two phases would include additional public “shelf” space, and an office tower each. Both the later phases could be optional. If completed, AECOM claimed the 10-acre project would contribute an annual $13.5 million to $16.3 million in taxes. This kind of tax revenue seems like a good return...

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

Also, in comparing this to Kellogg Mall Park, there would be riverfront space that would not be separated from people by 6 lanes of traffic. But this rendering makes it very unclear what is pedestrian space vs car space. The rendering Ethan posted shows cars between the buildings and the river. Is i...

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

So the land bridge has big gaping holes in it where you can peer down onto Shepard road? That is not what I was expecting. https://i.imgur.com/wPux5Nl.png However, if it becomes easy to ride your bike down to the river without having to cross live traffic on Shepard I think it will be heavily used a...

Re: Labeling the Transit System

I think the 14th St stop on the Rush Line and the Robert St stop on the Green Line are meant to be a transfer point, though they'll be right around the corner from one another. This is not shown well on the map, but I think it will be difficult to show it simply, given the quick turns of the Green L...
