Downtown - North Loop - Mill District - Elliot Park - Loring Park
I really don't get this, especially with the #10 which is late enough as it is, lets route that down the busiest street even though we could route it through Marquette which is closer to 3rd where the bus goes up to Central anyway.Yeah, over the weekend it was closed in two different sections, and yet buses werent routed only to Hennepin. They still twisted and turned to get back to Nicollet with a second detour via Marquette or LaSalle farther south.
No, I think this was mentioned before: they are using the east half of the parcel to unload materials and allow good accessability for construction vehicles etc. Its a staging area to make it easier to build considering the tight construction space next to the LRT. They probably won't start on the eastern half until the tower is topped off at 26 stories, and most of the tower's precast facade panels are in place.Maybe it was a joke the whole time, that's as big as the Nic on Fifth will be, and we'll eventually get a fourth building on this block?
Here's a fun view from section T in Target field showing the crane in front of 100 S 5th. Looks like a few floors will be visible from that middle section eventually.

When I counted last week they have about 10 more floors to go. The footprint is only half of what it will be. They haven't started the other half of the building yet, it's going to take up half the block. The rest of the block will be built out with Xcel's new building and the Mortenson apartment building.
I have the opposite impression. I think it makes a huge difference in making it "feel like you're in the city." But maybe it's mostly the construction noise!
The Power's Block is currently a work in progress. With the final completion of all three developments it will definitely "feel like your in a big city". What I'm really curious and excited about is what's going to happen to the Ritz block along Nicollet Mall just to the north. These three projects make development of the Ritz block that much closer to reality. This is ground zero for a new tall skyscraper to be built downtown if there ever was one. We definitely need some new projects that actually impact the skyline
Driving home through downtown yesterday, this is just starting to poke out above the Xcel building when viewed from the intersection of Hennepin and 4th. I'd have grabbed a picture, but I doubt the cop in the lane next to me would have approved.
