This is a really neat infographic put together by Star Tribune showing how the zoning would change with 2040.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 35ish stories - ~500'

Hard to fit in a tweet, but yeah that’s what I was getting at. If Mayor Frey is going to follow through on his hints of not doing the streetcar on Nicollet, we absolutely should not develop this block with this ground floor site plan. I actually really like the mix of uses here. 36 floors including...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I feel like the 16 and the 84 should have been the first to go when they started having driver shortages, and even now, they should just bite the bullet and kill the routes entirely. While that seems ok, just watch how many people would complain when you loose local stops. The 16 could probably lea...

Ames Construction and Kraemer North America dropped out, leaving only the $799.5 million Lunda-McCrossan bid. Which is the cheaper one.

Delayed by another 45 days for the contract since the FTA hasn’t issued the Letter of No Predijuce yet.

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

The comments on the 48th and Chicago stop are pretty great: https://www.metrotransit.org/d-line-meetings Basically, it's a ton of people saying there should be a stop here, a few saying maybe it could be in a slightly different spot (don't think those suggests really work), a handful of business ow...

Re: Southside - General Topics

The results of a vote at the Annual CARAG Neighborhood meeting were to officially change its name to "Uptown South." As I understand it, the City still needs to approve the change, but since Bender and Frey both spoke at the meeting, it should be a go. I though it was South Uptown, not Uptown South.

Re: Bike Share

According to the map, it doesn’t look like people are parking them in the hubs. I still don’t fully understand the idea of the hum. In my opinion, I feel like it contradicts the whole idea of dockless share. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk The University of Minnesota campus allows the NiceRide "...

That looks like an office building -- does St. Paul need office space?
Convert Class C office space to apartments, and then this will be new Class A office space!

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

Attended yesterday's meeting, quick summary: I would say there was 50/50 support vs opposition. Bicyclists and Car Drivers think they are entitled to the road. Buses make lots of annoying sounds, yet they forget that the 5 already runs through the area. Parking loss is minimal, yet it seems like the...
