Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

That rendering looks like they’ve change some of the orientation. I’m not the biggest fan of the donut apartment plans.

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

That looks like a giant new parking ramp next to the AMC (over the transit station?). Has anyone found the full plans as presented? I’m assuming this is phased.

Re: Highway Transitway Corridor Study

My thoughts: I'm kinda surprised this $300,000 study is being funded entirely by Washington County. I'm not surprised Hennepin isn't involved, but you'd think Ramsey County would be an equal partner with Washington...just look at the map. With this being planned from a suburban mentality, it's kind...

So many better uses for $50-100 million. Terrible idea.

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

Add this to the list of reasons people typically don’t like public transit. I’m on my bus home. The driver just picked up a few people while mid-block in the left lane of Marq2. He then skipped the scheduled stop 50 feet away that had multiple people waving their arms at him. I feel terrible for tho...

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

I hope we see a big increase in aBRT and high frequency routes this next decade. If we can have a great network of connected routes, I believe we’ll see higher ridership. People love transit that is easy. My friends don’t hesitate to use NYC Subway or Chicago L trains. Here, they only use the light ...

All of the Dayton's Skyways are open again. You can see a lot of the progress walking through.
This is great news! The recent closure has cut off parts of the skyway system.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

The 801 Chophouse has a sign saying Now Open. I’m really disappointed that they have the windows completely covered with what looks like interior wood shutters or sliding panels.

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

The permanent Dayton's signs were recently added to the corner of 8th and Nicollet. This morning there was a large Santa Bear window display at that corner too. I'd love if this project embraces the Dayton's history and brings back the Santa Bear or 8th floor displays.

Re: O'Gara's Development - 164 Snelling Ave N

I took this more as a "the bar/restaurant was struggling before the close and we've decided it's too competitive to get back in". I am sure that the State Fair business and owning this new building is lucrative enough for them to be comfortable.

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...
