No renovation can save those poor bathrooms.

With Macy's closing, are they about to become the only bathrooms open to the public downtown? (Or maybe one of the transit hubs have some?)

My building has a public bathroom, but it's tucked away in such a way that you wouldn't know it exists unless someone told you.

Downtown is in serious need of actual public bathrooms. I worked at the DT Target for a brief window during college and that bathroom was a microcosm of society's ills and our failure to address them.

Yeah, this really seems like something the DID should step up on.

Very much so. As far as I know, all we've got for actual public bathrooms downtown are at Target Field Station (intermittently open, don't seem to have posted hours), the library (open decently late on weeknights, not so much on weekends), City Hall/Government Center (business hours) and the Commons (24/7, but Portapotties).

Thrivent has (had?) quality bathrooms accessible to the public on street level next to the auditorium and skyway level near the cafeteria.

The Haff Ramp has restrooms. The portable toilets at the commons are locked except for game days as far as I know.

The Common's bathrooms are open during "park hours." You think all those Super Bowl fans coming would need to use the restroom?

Recently I took my grandma on an outing (she's wheelchair-bound) (her first time taking the light rail), and while she enjoyed it, as someone who doesn't live or work in downtown Minneapolis, it was difficult trying to find a bathroom she could use anywhere. Luckily we found the bathrooms at Target Field station, which were a floor down, underneath a bridge, and between two buildings.

Tiller, you should send this as a letter to DID and copy the Mayor and the downtown CM's. I know this would be a fairly expensive undertaking and require constant maintenance and supervision, but it's a really critical baseline livability concern for downtown visitors.

Indeed. As far as maintenance and supervision goes, the DID ambassadors already exist, and seem to be performing that function at the Commons.

Can you PLEASE tell us? It's so difficult to visit downtown without having a place to use a bathroom without having to go a very long distance.

I’m in US Bank Plaza. There’s a bathroom tucked in a hallway by the Atlas restaurant. It’s kind of weird because it’s a hallway that also includes doors for a business or two, but there is another set of doors that lead to a bathroom.

Pretty sure there's a similar one on the skyway level of IDS by the Bank of America branch, but I've never tested it since Barnes and Noble and Macy's are (soon to be were, I guess) both a skyway away.

100 S Washington has a public restroom on the fourth floor.

Unless I'm in a sit down restaurant or crunched for time I walk to lifetime target center.
