Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

While the error is large and alarming... Even with the adjusted/corrected amounts, they blew the goal out of the water these past two years.

The parking lot at third and Chicago, which I thought I read at some point was owned by the Wilf's, is closed and blocked off at the moment. Is something going in there?
Could this just be for tonight? It's the Taste of the Vikings event at USBS. Did they close this lot on game days?

I have a feeling there will be lots of calls/texts this week saying “Sorry I’m going to be late, my bus is stuck in traffic.”

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Route 54 extension starts tomorrow. It will be interesting to hear how it goes. A single seat ride from Maplewood Mall to the Airport is great! Although I wonder how long that ride would be end to end, I can’t find the schedule.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

The Rush Line has started its local station area planning meetings with community members to refine where to put the stations. They have also sent out confirmations to people on the Community Advisory Committee (I'll be on it). Congrats. I guess this means I wasn't chosen for the CAC. I am on the e...

Yesterday and today they are painting the big blank wall on the north side. Looks like it will have a stripe pattern.

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Case in point... most skyway food joints easily meet 4/6 of the items above. Depending on their furniture and packaging they could have 5 or all 6. I consider most to be fast casual, not fast food.

Realignment of Lexington and senior housing. We talked about this somewhere already. Will be interesting to see if this is the first of many along W 7th.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

There was a recent story that the price tag has risen to $250M. Up from the $150-200 estimate. I remember when it was first proposed as $100 even. Ha!

Ultimately adding a second track at later date comes at significant increase in cost. Portland is still dealing with the decision to single track the Red Line. Single tracking causes significant operational difficulties, if you thought the signals on University were bad, single tracking would degra...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

I definitely see NE as one of the most upcoming neighborhoods. It will be a tough couple of years, but then WOW!

Side note: my express bus cuts through NE, from 35w to central/3rd, to Marq2; as do other express buses. I wonder if they will detour or permanently change those routes?

Re: Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

Tidbit in the article. Phase 1 is only 37.5% leased! (175 vacancies). I wonder how this neighborhood is going to cope with phase 2, and the USBank site, and eventually the condo tower. That's a big increase!
