I agree, but the site was eliminated to already progressing development plans for the site.

Chester Gardens - Duluth, MN

I wanted to share this mix-used development that was recently completed in Duluth. Seems to be very well designed and built. Definitely looks like it has been there years.

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

I would gather we won't hear anything until after election season. So that even if the public involvement is infrastructure in the Farmers Market, it doesn't become an election issue.

Anybody able to glean info from this?

It seems silly that I live just over the Ford Bridge and the Jimmy Johns in Highland can't deliver to the Minneapolis side.

Before the Portland Streetcar built their own heavy maintenance facility the streetcars would utilize the light rail trackage to reach the MAX maintenance facility.

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

But this would have been decided early in the process, and it would have only changed the plans slighty, so not really costing anything more. But besides that, no plans EVER had parking in these buildings. Not at any point. So it is very obvious that this was planned from the beginning, and will be...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

I'm not sure why you think that a streetcar would be slower than the Green Line as configured. Given a streetcar would probably have more stops (both Minneapolis and St. Paul have been talking 1/4 mile stop frequency for their streetcars) and have to deal with traffic in its ROW (and might not even...

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

I highly doubt there were any plans for parking on those floors. This larger level is more likely for conference rooms and auditoriums for larger meetings and conferences at the facility. And the front corner will most likely be the large atrium. I'll go ask my neighbor who's a project manager on t...

It's a mechanical and skyway floor. Supposed there was an option for parking on those levels which Wells Fargo declined leaving an awkwardly tall floor.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

St. Paul must have given more intersections full transit priority or tweaked the system again. This week my westbound trains have all been on time arriving in downtown Minneapolis. This is the first time since the line has opened that this has happened. Here you go. http://www.twincities.com/localn...

My wife got a job that she can take either the 46 or the 84 to, from the 46th st Station, but I can't make heads or tails of the map to figure out which 84 gets her back to the LRT. She just ended up at Snelling and University, which is ...
