Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

Looking at the map, the Lyndale-Johnson corridor follows the Penn branch of the 4. That's probably the right choice ridership-wise, but it means that the Lyndale-Johnson BRT won't be on Lyndale for even two full miles, which is kinda funny.

Re: Eleven - 1111 West River Parkway - 41 stories / 550'

Minor changes can be approved administratively, but if RBC Gateway had to go back to the CPC, I don't know why this wouldn't have to. Maybe 580' is the final crane height?

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

There's a TAB Update on the engagement process thus far. The only real piece of news (that won't surprise anyone here), is that the 11 corridors marked for further engagement in August have been shaved down to 10, with the W. 7th / Rt. 54 corridor disappearing without explanation.

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

"Cedar Ave" must be a typo since, like you say, every station except MOA is on Cedar. I think that's intended to be "Cedar Grove", where there's a median station connected by a skyway to the transit center off to the side of the freeway.

Oh, interesting. That'll certainly be an efficiency boost to start using the median station again.

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

So, for the Red Line, it says: "New station at Cedar Ave. will be station in the middle of Hwy. 77."

Hasn't the online station been in use for a couple years now?

Re: Southside - General Topics

Looks like it also says "To allow a shopping mall in the C2 District." and "To increase height in the C2 District". So, I guess an expansion of Karmel Square with apartments on top? Cool. Also of note, there's an application coming to the CPC next week to build a 4-story, 13-unit walkup (with 1st fl...

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Corridor Development & MinHi Line

According to the new Planning dashboard, an application was submitted on Monday for a new two-story mixed-use building at 3840 Minnehaha. Could someone have cracked the code on how to build a classic apartment-over-storefront building again?

Ooh, lots of interesting stuff on that map.

A replacement for the apartment buildings that were damaged during the Theater ...

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

I imagine that the D Line buildout will install chargers at MOA, so buses can charge up at both ends. Not at a computer right now to measure distance, but I would think that the one-way length of the D Line is probably pretty similar to the round-trip length of the C Line, right?

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

Looks like the House decided to play hardball, and adjourned their session after passing the bill, making the Senate take it or leave it, and they took it. So, assuming the governor doesn't decide to torpedo his own party's big accomplishment, I think we can consider this funded. Here's a Minnesota ...

I had assumed this was dead, but it's back before the Planning Commission on Monday. No changes to the exterior envelope of the building (or the community garden on the Blaisdell side) are proposed, but they're reconfiguring the interior to add six units (129 instead of 123) and two parking spots (6...

Well, that's a good trend! In that case, the next one should open up in 2032, though it remains to be seen if it's Riverview or Bottineau.

Interesting - according to their website, they're currently at Invictus Brewing, and are also expanding to High Pines Brewing in Roseville. Wonder if they'll partner with a brewery (Venn?) for the Minneapolis location as well?
