Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

I wish all towers would move as efficiently and quickly as this. When I saw this on Saturday crossing the river I got so excited I distracted my wife and we missed our exit. That's almost a "intervention" for development tracking obsession story. haha :lol: But in all seriousness, yes this one has ...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I like the broadway route idea, but only as a more temporary solution until they can eventually get the railroad to agree. The Broadway BRT line goes all the way to Robbinsdale and building 6 more ideally temp BRT stations north of that would be a good investment to get the line fast tracked. Maybe ...

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

What unimaginative useless crap!!! The water park looks deserving to be included in to the MOA but the rest.... the rest?

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

Sorry I was thinking of the E line, that line down Hennepin should connect to westend. I guess B line is going to be extended to St. Paul downtown. https://metrocouncil.org/Council-Meetings/Committees/Transportation-Committee/2019/October-28,-2019/Info-2_-B-Line-Update.aspx I like that Idea, I don't...

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

I am also betting on this service becoming a very successful route. No doubt. Regarding the ridership mismatch between west and east of Hiawatha Ave, we should probably revisit the Midtown Corridor Streetcar/LRT soon, ideally along with the implementation of B Line. Guess we just need more people t...

Re: MSP to Rochester High Speed Rail

One thing that needs to happen is to build more of a base in the MSP region for these services rather than relying on individual regions in Greater MN to lobby for their lines. This. The Greater MN regions all are absolutely auto-dependent so a train into the Cities, while nice for commuters or cas...

Re: Rochester Transit Line

Given our state's famously flexible definition of "BRT", I'm very curious to see what this ends up actually being. It would be quite the feat if Rochester managed to get, say, dedicated, physically-separated, center-running bus lanes before Minneapolis or St. Paul got them. I agree the C Line which...

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

To be fair there already is that street parking lot with 49 spaces, which could be converted to sideways parking on the north side of the street as well making maybe 70 spaces in total. It's a nice asset, that could help boost retail if they could turn it into a private lot allowing businesses to ha...

Re: 1500 Nicollet Avenue - Dominium Development - 6 stories / 184 units

Maybe one of those mini Cub Foods stores. The one in south Minneapolis is so cool. It would cater more to the neighborhood what with the density here and really wouldn't require parking. Doubt it, but I would love to see something like that. Especially when it's a company with larger traditional si...

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

Northtown Mall wants to move the transit center to the south parking lot so that the land can be developed. The neighborhood adjacent (which is in Spring Lake Park) to the new transit center isn't happy. https://www.hometownsource.com/abc_newspapers/news/government/spring-lake-park-opposes-proposed...

Re: MSP to Rochester High Speed Rail

I honestly think connecting Northstar to St. Cloud as a commuter line would be a better example to show, but looks like NLE is closer to actually happening. Not sure how you get to that conclusion. Northstar has so much limits they can't expand to hourly service, they even suggested cutting frequen...

I like it, plus now within 10-15 years I hope that diner gets developed into a 10-20 floor building. Sure having the old brick building would be nice to build just above it but I know thats not how things work. We sure are filling in a lot of parking lots and low level blah buildings.

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 35 stories / 393'

The greatest disappointment I would say is that the far end of the rail station won't allow transit riders to cross the bike trail, climb the covered stairs and then pass under the high up connected terriance. It's a breathtakingly great transition from the enclosed train to the wide open space happ...
