Central Corridor


As planning and building of the  light-rail line that will link Minneapolis and Saint Paul along University Avenue goes forward, a whole range of issues are arising that call upon vision, ingenuity, and a sense of fairness for solutions.

Answering these questions is an entrepreneurial, urbanistic, design, and political challenge that will keep the Cities busy for years to come.
