Re: Rochester

Well I remember seeing the initial renderings for DMC and the library was nowhere to be seen, but I guess that idea is getting cut? The library was built to have handle at least one more floor, so I'm assuming adding another floor on top of that wouldn't be too drastic of a move? I would be surprise...

Re: Rochester

It sounds like the Rochester Public Library is looking, as it has been for years, to expand! The plans call for two additional floors to the existing building at a cost of $55 million. http://www.themedcitybeat.com/news-blog/2016/whats-next-for-the-rochester-public-library Betcher will present the l...

Re: The Broadway at Center - Rochester

Re: The Broadway at Center - Rochester

Are the renderings still the same as the last time we saw it?

Don't one of the Chafoulias developers basically own that entire piece of broadway? If so, it wouldn't surprise me if they extended the Galleria/University Square into the old Michael's space.

Re: Interstate 494

Fixing 494/35 will solve that specific area. A few years ago, an auxiliary lane was added WB between 494 and highway 100. One problem is, the bottleneck is now between France/100. 494/35 sometimes has backups, but not generally (at least in my current experiences). Then, there is a bottleneck (wors...

Re: Bloomington Central Station & South Loop Development

It's really nice to see buildings going up there again. When driving by it always looked awkward with that huge open area between the buildings.

Re: Rochester

Hopefully that open house today brings forth some new information on what's going to be happening downtown.

Re: Rochester

A recent post from Rochester's PostBulletin claims that demolition might start soon for the 23 story Broadway At Center Tower in downtown Rochester! It's about time too, as the building was announced ages ago. http://www.postbulletin.com/news/local/answer-man-mayo-has-no-plans-yet-for-old-lourdes/ar...

Re: Rochester

Apparently there's going to be an open house this Thursday taking place within the historic Conley-Maass Building regarding its renovation and the Discovery Square portion of the Destination Medical Center plan. Hopefully this brings about some decent information for what they have planned :D http:/...

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

Honestly I kinda like it. It's much brighter. I was thinking the exact same thing. One thing I've noticed about this is that on every Facebook post or StarTribune article posted, people are less concerned about the switch from pavers to poured concrete than they are about the fact that buses and ta...
