Mid century is so cool right now. Love it. If it wasn't so convoluted to get them out to this site I'd say go for it

So very last century?
Not from MN originally but I tend to like the skyways and use them more than not.
A native bachelor farmer wouldn’t use them.

As are wider sidewalks, bicycles, and streetcars.
Why in the heck would a "bachelor farmer" be downtown to use them anyways, there isn't any stock yards.

And a confirmed-bachelor farmer wouldn't be found in them, either -- they don't go all the way to the Eagle.

A confirmed bachelor farmer would put on his chaps and ride his steed (bicycle) to the Eagle on the Washington Ave bikeway.

Is it my imagination, or does the plan call for a drive thru curb cut in the middle of the aBRT station platform?

I believe the BRT Platform would be closer to Park, after that curb cut, which is why I think it's where it is.

That is certainly possible, but not what is shown in the plans. Perhaps it was shifted? The site plan just shows trees along the sidewalk next to what is labeled as the “BRT Lane”, with a yellow box roughly corresponding to where the platform is shown in the 8th St. BRT layout.

Hmm... they easily could have designed this without that curb cut. But then the entrance would be much less obvious, of course.
Also, hate the first level material choice. Almost makes the whole thing look like a parking garage at street level.
Besides that, this is pretty good for this spot.

This looks okay from the west. From the east, it's boring. I'm guessing the developers thought it was too expensive to repeat the fancy window treatment on the other side.
