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?

Re: MSP Airport

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...

How realistic is this? Hope and a dream or will the residential get built and the brochure is to fill out the retail?

Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

Is there a downtown St Paul map showing, Green, Gold, Rush (Purple), and Riverview routes? I'm not sure I've seen it all on a map together.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

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?

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Discussed that it gives the option to extend the downtown to the northwest and has close proximity to the new Lakeshore Players Theatre and White Bear Center...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

That option is terrible! Easily 5-6th place in my rankings. My ranks were 1) the original USBank site 2) 4th and Division. The funny thing is that many people were complaining about the original proposed site because of the ramp... what they don’t realize is that if the station is not close to downt...

Re: City Center

Noticed that leasing brochure lists the top of the parking garage as a "rooftop opportunity" and there's a faint outline of a building. Are they suggesting you could actually build on to that side? Or just use the rooftop as an outdoor space? What is the "Roof Canopy" and "Rooftop Sports Lounge" on...

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I think they did a pilot a while back. It was interesting. We loved seeing St Louis Park. Could be a hit if the couple is likeable. Fixer Upper was a huge success because people love Chip and Jo.

I vote for the Brooklyn’s to join but new city is named Park Center. (Like the high school) it would honor the previous cities and avoid any negative connotation of Brooklyn.

I’ve found that my Go To Card and google maps having transit has increased my comfort with transit. I suggest using both to everyone. The hardest part can be the last mile.
