Re: Downtown Hotel News

There are a number of other large corps down in that area. Thompson Reuters is one example. They are hoping that they will stay as close a possible. I think they are also hoping some of the amenities built in (auditorium, etc) will be used by these corps too. I think they are hoping that the stadium...

Re: Bike Share

You can sign up to be a "charger". Essentially, they pay you to collect them at night and you plug them in to charge over night. In the morning you set them outside for people to use. I've wondered about the financial aspect of this I see 3 things you should be paid for. 1, you have to drive around...

The three tower option D would be great. Do you think the community would fight it like the did the condos? I think NE is ready to BOOM!

WOW. That is big. Look at this rendering. https://twitter.com/evanrobertsnz/status/1011407644970635264 I feel like there are multiple "new downtowns" in the works: 1. NE Mpls is going vertical 2.

While the error is large and alarming... Even with the adjusted/corrected amounts, they blew the goal out of the water these past two years.

The parking lot at third and Chicago, which I thought I read at some point was owned by the Wilf's, is closed and blocked off at the moment. Is something going in there?
Could this just be for tonight? It's the Taste of the Vikings event at USBS. Did they close this lot on game days?

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Route 54 extension starts tomorrow. It will be interesting to hear how it goes. A single seat ride from Maplewood Mall to the Airport is great! Although I wonder how long that ride would be end to end, I can’t find the schedule.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

The Rush Line has started its local station area planning meetings with community members to refine where to put the stations. They have also sent out confirmations to people on the Community Advisory Committee (I'll be on it). Congrats. I guess this means I wasn't chosen for the CAC. I am on the e...

Case in point... most skyway food joints easily meet 4/6 of the items above. Depending on their furniture and packaging they could have 5 or all 6. I consider most to be fast casual, not fast food.
