Stories from the corner of 37th and Nicollet

Form and function day 35

There seems to be something taking shape across the street from us, and although it was described as a bus pad, I'm thinking it is much more like the size of a streetcar. If it ever comes to pass, this road will be ready to handle them. Will I?

the forms also provide a good sense of the additional sidewalk and boulevard.  I look at the stakes and watch the crew line things up and I begin to see the final shape.  This will be fine patio area and if I close my eyes and imagine the trees that will be there in the future, it feels like a very idyllic place -- even worth putting up with the noise and commotion to have such a place.
