Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Really? Wow, that's great... but no press release, golden shovels or ribbon cutting?

Re: Saint Paul Union Depot

Forcing people into the building to make the building active shouldn't be a primary consideration for Riverview's route planning. Harming that line and forcing transfers to be more difficult just to make the depot seem active would be a poor choice. But isn't that what the building was designed for...

Re: Saint Paul Union Depot

Agreed. They should use the concourse for the new Riverview line.

Re: Road Crime

Last Saturday morning at 2am someone drove their car onto the LRT tracks just west of SPUD. The got wedged in the interlocking units. After they hoisted the car out of there they had to check over all infrastructure before letting the train leave. No biggie since it was 2am, but essentially the trai...

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

So, any suggestions for adaptive reuse of the Wabash Ave railroad bridge over MN-280? Or would that simply be torn down? Hopefully they can utilize that ROW and make it into a cycle track that connect the property with the new St Paul Grand Rounds on Pelham. I ride Wabash daily, it's not that bad a...

But isn't that a deal breaker? I thought they wanted to start in June, no?

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Bravo. How wonderful and cool. Perhaps the hotel will have a bar which will help fill the void of the Top Hat. I couldn't open the article, did they give a timeline as to when they were going to start this? On a side note, what a great way to keep DTSP office vacancy rates in check, by utilizing the...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

To me it seemed like mostlyright, birdpeep, Krossman, and kenw1952 were at best indifferent to the project. Were they not complaining about tax payer subsidized stadiums and having billionaires finance their own project?

Re: Prospect North Gardens - 2901 4th Street SE (Cornerstone development)

The website was so vague that I sent an email asking for a timeline on the project. The response I got was "we have decided to sell the land instead of build on it ourselves".

Re: Cornerstone Prospect Park Development - 2901 4th Street SE

So if they are bull dozing and excavating on the site now, does that mean that construction is imminent? I looked at their website and didn't see any specific dates. This prospect park LRT station is going from zero to amazing in just a few years.

I think that the merchants bank building is very charming.... that would be a nice addition to the downtown residential mix. Super cool high altitude skyway too.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

A ways back there was news that the white building adjacent to the iconic 1st Bank tower was sold and something other than office space planned. It has the cool copper skyway that connects like 10 stories up. When I first saw the article my hope was that it was for that. Anyone have any intel on tha...

Re: Stadium Village 26-Story Tower (Harbor Bay Real Estate)

Sally's, for example reopened in the same spot.

But some things are irreplaceable. I don't know how they will replace that *seasoning* in the kitchen of Village Wok. Ehem.
