Re: Upper Harbor Terminal

Is “industrial ruins” of today what the “mill district” was before it? Keep this stuff around to add character? Similar to reusing silos.

Re: West Elm Hotel & Condos - 102-120 1st Street N

Would it be better if the U faced 1st? It would probably have better sun exposure and breakup the flat wall front of the building.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Metro Transit changes for next Saturday generally reinstate a number of trips suspended last week, but do eliminate other trips as well. Big changes to Route 71. Much of the route is being simplified. Full details here: https://www.metrotransit.org/august-updates I don’t get this. I assumed we were...

Re: Nicollet Mall

The light walk is terrible. The mirrors do not work and reflect like they were advertised. Two blocks of it and it's basically a giant overly expensive pergola.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

There are going to be some changes to the State Fair service this year, mostly due to an operator shortage. This piece from Citylab is a good read about the current state of affairs of the transit operator profession, as an aside: https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2018/06/why-wont-anyone-drive...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

You’d be surprised. I use the p&r at Maplewood Mall and there are some WI plates. One time I parked next to a Tesla X with WI plates and happened to see the owner when we were headed home. I asked “why?” He said “I drive half my commute to get here, it’s nice to ride the bus for the 2nd half.”

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

If a major automaker bought Tesla, would it be profitable within a year? I think it would be awesome to see a Jeep/Dodge buyout of Tesla. Imagine an electric wrangler. 💰

Re: Downtown Hotel News

There are a number of other large corps down in that area. Thompson Reuters is one example. They are hoping that they will stay as close a possible. I think they are also hoping some of the amenities built in (auditorium, etc) will be used by these corps too. I think they are hoping that the stadium...

Re: Bike Share

You can sign up to be a "charger". Essentially, they pay you to collect them at night and you plug them in to charge over night. In the morning you set them outside for people to use. I've wondered about the financial aspect of this I see 3 things you should be paid for. 1, you have to drive around...

The three tower option D would be great. Do you think the community would fight it like the did the condos? I think NE is ready to BOOM!

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?
