Re: West Side Flats - (84 Wabasha Street South)

Actually I think they have completed the whole U shape. It's hard to tell since the only rendering, posted at the construction site, only shows the view from Wabasha. I'm not sure what the funky thing on the end is supposed to be. The courtyard seems a little large, and I hope they don't just pave t...

Re: Snelling BRT/enhanced bus

Thanks for the update. I was planning on going but got caught up. There's a ridiculous number of opportunities along this corridor. I hope they take their time to get it right...but still open for service ASAP. I'd assume sidewalks will be added on both sides of Snelling for the entire length. If on...

Re: 773-785 University (Central Exchange)

Here is a pdf overview of the two developments Model Cities is pursuing. It includes both the Central Exchange and the BROWNstone building, which Model Cities currently occupies. http://www.modelcities.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Model-Cities-Redevelopment-Overview1.pdf They incorporate similar e...

Re: St. Paul Project Map

I don't know how to actually edit the map, but a few other potential photo sites: 1. Hamm's Brewery (Minnehaha between Payne Ave and Arcade St): ongoing conversion by Urban Organics, and future site of Flat Earth Brewing. 2. Victoria Park (W 7th at Otto): I believe construction of the apartment buil...

Re: Saint Paul Union Depot

I believe the route 94 bus will actually start/terminate at SPUD in 2014 once the Green Line starts running, along with other bus service changes. I do agree that other routes could/should be routed to/from SPUD as well, but that would definitely require a pretty extreme reworking of the downtown bu...

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

The interlining aBRT on W/E 7th will definitely happen first, but the "Gold" line is also moving forward it looks like. The Ramsey Regional Railroad Authority just reinstated funding for the Rush Line Advanced Alternatives Analysis, so after a number of years hiatus, this may be moving forward again...

Re: New Senate office building (St. Paul Capitol Hill)

It's good to see the area around the Ford building filled in, even though it is a parking ramp. Would some govt-related retail be easier to attract and sustain in a govt-owned structure? I'm thinking a post office or something that truly would get used by the community as well. I don't really have a...

Re: Interstate 35E

That open space may be part of the Trout Brook Nature Preserve ("Trillium") that's been planned for a while, and will be constructed along with this 35E project. The trout brook is being brought back above ground, and it folds in nicely with the extension of the Gateway Trail.

Re: Green Line (Central)

There are also windows facing Prince St (south) as well as what looks like window-mimicking trellises (there are openings in the sidewalk below them, so I assume some sort of plants/landscaping will go there). Not sure what will happen with the north-facing wall, but I don't think they can do anythi...

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

uh oh...not sure why I didn't see this before...for Gateway, the stops should go: Mounds, EARL, WHITE BEAR, SUN RAY, 3M, GREENWAY, and then the rest. The border between St Paul and Maplewood is between the Sun Ray and 3M stations.

Re: 773-785 University (Central Exchange)

Found this render on the Model Cities website (correct me if this isn't new or current). I really like the way this looks!
