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...

Re: 1410 Loring - 1400 Nicollet Ave. (Market BBQ redevelopment)

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. Im referring t...

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...

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.

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...

I thought they JUST built that Holiday gas station.

Re: Federal Reserve Riverfront Parking Ramp

The Reserve bank is 5 blocks away from C Ramp! Walking 5 blocks isn't feasible?
