Re: Introductions

I might as well introduce myself as well. My name is Brent and I have absolutely no training or education in construction/development/urban studies, but I love seeing new development take place. I grew up in and still live in Maplewood, and I have a bachelor's in biology and currently pursuing my ma...

Re: Lowertown Depot

I believe the vision/plan is to convert the Lowertown Depot into an educational center, possibly with offices or other uses on the tops floors. I remember a public survey going out about this idea, and historic reuse of the Lowertown Depot was by far the preferred option vs. a newly constructed ed. ...

Re: Saint Paul streetcar study

Looks like Phase 1 of the Feasibility Study was completed, which selected about 15 corridor/segments to carry forward for further study. More information is on the St Paul Transportation Committee website. I like most of the selected corridors so it will be interesting to see what may become of thes...

Re: Suburban Malls and Associated Retail News

The downtown still has a great huge deli area in the basement (what used to be Dayton's Marketplace section). They have good stuff, and are hopping at lunch. I am not even sure the surburban locations have these sections anymore? I haven't checked in those for that section in a while. Downtown also...

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

I think it make more sense for the White Bear/Rush Line LRT to be a different color, especially since it is clearly going to be north/south instead of east/west. Depending on what happens in the Robert St Corridor, these two could potentially be interlined as the same color.

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

Again being really picky, but in the eastern metro, the interstate north of 94 (and the Gateway) should be labeled 694. South of Gateway should be 494.

Re: Transit News and Happenings

Leaving the U on the 272 Express for the Maplewood Transit Center yesterday took almost 2 hours last night. I certainly hope it doesn't take that long this time!

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

Although it doesn't belong on this map (yet), I really hope the Rush Line gets some more attention soon. LRT from Union Depot to White Bear Lake should experience decent ridership, and it would fill a void in this current METRO/fixed-route transit network.

Re: Victoria Park (W 7th & Otto)

I also really like the look of those townhomes. Hopefully they're done right, and hopefully only minimal amounts of surface parking are visible up to the street.
