Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

makes sense to me, rebuilt trail bridge likely stronger and new rail bridge and new lrt bridge.

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 ...

Re: Calhoun Towers - 3430 List Place (2x 281' - 24 stories)

I don't mind the twin tower drop. To many matching towers end up looking rather out of place outside of places where they are wrapped by other towers. What I DO mind is that they decreased the sidewalk crossings from 3 to 2 along West 31st. 3 crosswalks line up well with the station, while 2 are mak...

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

Imagine if this food hall is so successful that it became a chain name for other food hall locations! I think it be the first time a “failed” brand is brought back in a new capacity or at least in the retail market.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

Neel Kashkari was on WCCO radio this morning and was asked about the ramp. He reiterated that they have a parking problem (lol) and said something to the effect of "we're not done yet." Very ominous. So ridiculous, there is literally a parking ramp another government group wants to tear down. We wo...

Re: Target Field Station (the Hotel) & Target Field Station (the Station)

I thought they JUST built that Holiday gas station. We need to keep our downtown gas stations (Holiday North Loop, Speedy Loring Park, and Mobile behind the US Bank Stadium off Washington Ave.) I think we have just enough pumps downtown, a touch to less considering Loring's Speedway has only 4 pumps...

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

The Reserve bank is 5 blocks away from C Ramp! Walking 5 blocks isn't feasible? I understand not everyone is able to walk modest amounts, so long term some (one level) underground parking into a development on the site would be a great long term vision to strive for those with mobility requirements....

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Great move forward. Although I wonder if it was just a bike trail with perhaps a streetcar line connecting from Green line in midway to the proposed Riverview streetcar line. Maybe that's a little to fantasy given not much space for development in this corridor. This should be a nice way for many pe...

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

I bet Northstar was considered fantasy, and look what happened. Reopening the Great Northern Depot or Milwaukee Road Depot in downtown to passenger trains is fantasy, but what we’ve been discussing is well within the realm of reality. Sadly in many ways Northstar is still fantasy. It's currently a ...

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

Getting Rid of the 394 ramps into downtown would be a nightmare for the ABC ramps. Unless your plan is to also demolish them as well. It sure would be progressive towards a car-less downtown, interesting idea but a bit unrealistic in today's climate. Not trying to put down your ideas, and dreams.. b...

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

I don't think we need to worry about expanding the station anytime soon.. Given Northstar only has what 8 trips a day. Hardly worth building a big station. Longer term I think building a waiting lobby and retail space above the platform would be good, could connect to the skyway so people can get to...

Is daycare a good use for a first floor? As opposed to a second or higher floor? Yes. Imagine trying to evacuate a daycare with infants and toddlers using stairs verses a door straight to the sidewalk. I would say it's not a good usage of space on first floor, second floor would be more appropriate...
