From an architect's perspective , this must have been a very challenging (but fun) project to work on. I like the interior's good relationship and references to the exterior's geometric design and coloration. And the circulation pattern inside the complex seems to make much more sense than it did previously. I hope RSP gets some recognition for their effort.

Noticed today walking in that the tall portion of the screening was placed just so that it will basically block Loews from basically any point on Hennepin. Intentional? Reasoning?

They left a small gap open that my skinny body could get through. Pictures coming soon. The escalators were running and its very bright.

Way to go Grant, risking life and limb for our edification.

I'm just glad they didn't release the hounds on you.

Grant, Do you know if those are the old Escalators, or did they move them and those are new units?

Looks like they were relocated.

Regretting not exploring more. There was absolutely no one around. Sundays are great for that

7th & Hennepin still looks a bit ungainly. Looking forward to seeing it's completion.

You now have me wanting to head downtown after dark to see the parts that are lit up. I saw some of the 7th St on the way home from a twins game a few weeks ago. But that was before the Hennepin and 6th St side had their mesh up. Want to see this in the evening now.

That Mayo sign must be on the 7th St side?

Asked the bus driver yesterday if he knew when the bus stop at 7th/Henn would re-open. Says he has no idea. It will be nice to have that one back.

Aren't they going to start construction on the Transit Advantage bus stops next week?
