The NE corner (Marquette Hotel) is getting some sort of raised patio or planter space. It's the area that used to have their monument sign and a few tables/chairs for the hotel bar.
They did this planter a few months ago. It had Christmas trees in it.

Bafflingly easy getting to and from today, if you were wondering.
Using what method? Pre-game tailgating? Stay at a bar after the game? Many additional factors would be nice to know.

Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

Would they ever use C Line buses on the A line for MN UFC game days? Or maybe normal articulated buses to increase capacity.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I can’t find the article, but I read that Tim Walz wants to open one bus line per year for the next 10 years due in part to raising the motor vehicle sales tax. A few of the lines include 169 BRT between Shakopee and Hopkins or Minneapolis, Red Line South extension, Orange Line south extension, Hig...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

If I'm reading this correctly, the Snelling and University intersection could soon be home to Green, A, AND B lines? It's just a question of if this is the end of the B line or if it continues on to St Paul. This intersection and surrounding areas needs some serious upgrades!

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

A second park and ride would probably be a good idea too. State Fair grounds make sense, but they’re not very convenient from a lot of places. TCF Bank Stadium would work well as a second location. I’ve also not yet heard of any private options. Surly posted about being a pregame option. They had a...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I wonder why they sold. I thought they were still over 50% of building even with the new buildings over by the stadium. Wells Fargo didn't own the building.

Re: Labeling the Transit System

At one point there was talk of interlining Rush and Riverview. But I suppose that’s dead now that Rush is BRT and Riverview is streetcar.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I’d say a top priority should be to make NextTrip actually work. Fix the “real time” screens so that they use gps data instead of schedules.

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

To change the topic off of parking... any chance the TMBR is supposed to be pronounced as Timber? Could they be planning to work wood into the construction or exterior?

I've never caught a connecting flight at MSP (obviously), but I've always thought it compared very well to others in the US. I can't think of any domestic airports that made me think they were better than MSP. I'm glad we have all of the gates behind security. Coming home from Fort Myers recently, ...

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

I was going to say, what is the plan for AMC parking? Basically that whole parking lot is eliminated. Of course, that lot was always really poorly circulated, but seems like they'd need a new ramp or something. if you look at the pdf east parking would have 4 levels with 1300 spots The West Parking...

Yeah, a little bit of a walk to the actual downtown and you have to cross the highway. Why are they not going with the original decided location?
