Re: We have 30 Days of Biking; why not 30 Days of Transit?

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.

Re: White Bear Lake & Vadnais Heights - General Topics

Nextdoor is talking about a new “high rise” apartment development in WBL. That probably only means 4 stories, but according to one comment it’s for 189 units. I can’t find details on the city or developers website. Anyone want to help? Location: County Road E and Linden Ave Developer: Schafer Richar...

Re: E Line Arterial BRT

I wonder what this means for the E Line?

Also, the Future Projects page towards the end mentions a new limited stop service to Maplewood Mall. Kinda looks like the route 54 extension to me. Right?

Re: Nordic House - 729 Washington Av N

Do I understand this correctly?

Nordic House, is the big building fronting Washington Ave.
Sable, is the building wrapping the parking ramp?

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

The old Riverwalk Apartments are being advertised as FreightYard Townhomes and Flats. It looks like they gutted the place and combined units. There were never units this big before.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

There was a lot of debate about the parking ramp they planned for the US Bank site in downtown WBL. I have a feeling it will either be A) that site with no ramp B) a different site. But I’ve hears nothing official.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

I agree on the strange feel of this corner. Anytime I've walked over to City Works for lunch it feels like a ghost town. Yet the other corner of Mayo Clinic with Kieran's does alright. Mayo Clinic still has 2 empty corners, which could be an indicator that this will be hard to lease up. I've always ...

There has been talk in many different threads about the skyways and how people use them. Even with temps seasonably warm, they are promoting the path from ABC to US Bank Stadium.

It does say it will be in the former Ruby Tuesday's space, so we aren't talking about something the size of the attraction at MOA. Rosedale is trying VERY hard to stay relevant. 1. full remodel. 2. new Von Maur 3. new "food hall" ...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

I’m following down the line... sure it’s NIMBY but would it also have some YIMBY? With the overhead lines it REALLY solidified that the line isn’t moving. (One of the knocks against buses vs rail)

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I hope that map isn't a final design, since it looks kinda rough. Pretty great seeing all of those routes on the official metro map, though! I was just looking at the map again. The Rush Line is incorrect. It should connect to the Green Line around Regions. I think this map makes it clear that the ...
