Kraus Anderson Dev at Raymond & University (form US Bank branch)

Been hearing for awhile that US Bank branch at north east corner of Raymond and University would be closing by Dec because property had been sold. Rumor now is it is Kraus Anderson developing the site - they are buying the bank branch building and the building to east of it on University also. Appar...

Re: Future Cars: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

I've been banging on this gong for a while, but using these AV's for collector shuttles that feed or distribute from our mainline transit service on short, predictable routes seems like a match made in heaven. Getting rid of the labor cost of the driver allows these vehicles to be smaller and still...

Re: Seven Corners Gateway Site / Radisson Red

Why is this not taller - I mean, for river view alone, height would be a winner.

Can't believe the value of the land at this location doesn't support taller building.

Are their height limitations I'm unaware of?

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Have they considered just closing St Clair entrances/exits and/or Grand to car traffic, just had bike, ped access? Would want to keep Hamline to avoid even mess around Snelby but others access to middle AMR cut off, traffic would probably never go on AMR and get spread over grid. I would assume vast...

"The city is looking for five St. Paul residents, one or two Maplewood residents, a representative of the housing industry, someone who works in or advocates for multi-modal transportation, a business owner or staff member with a business association, and a member of the St. Paul Planning Commission."

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

Unfortunately, it looks like from the civil plans that the parks dept is using and the road construction happening now, the new Myrtle street going in east/west here will not be connected to Curfew to the east, but dead end into the eastern Dominium apartments (Milberry) underground garage.

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

City of St. Paul put out a preliminary plan for the square portion of park land the City bought back from Dominium, south of where apartments are going in. Pretty basic as not much funds for anything else. This part of park will constructed next year. The "Park 2" land that is curved former RR spur ...

This seems like kiss of death "Last I heard the St. Paul port authority was getting involved" My experience with them is they have know vision of what cities do best and where cities are going in future but rather think cities can reclaim manufacturing jobs of old by building same sort of space manu...

So the occupants of the Case Building nearby this Weyerhauser site are to date: Kimley Horn A/E firm, The Lab pilot brewery and tap room (which is an excellent place to hang out despite the view being a surface parking lot), and a seminary. And they still have space to fill. As to the new park in th...
