  1. What is wrong with those commenters?
  2. AS220 Mercantile Block

  3. SEPTA is selling these: P&W could buy them and RIDOT could help subsidize the service and/or fix platform from Pawtucket northward.
  4. Fire at House of Scrimshaw

    Yeah, it's called a window, get to know it. How strange.
  5. Ideally, eventually, we will have commuter rail service all the way to Westerly and perhaps New London, that is part of long range planning. But even once we get service as far as Wickford Junction, that is a bonus for South County. Driving to and parking at Wickford Junction should be an attractive option. The current set up, driving to Providence or Attelboro is not as attractive to someone in South County, once you've fought traffic through Providence, you might as well drive all the way to Boston. Even for commuters going into Providence only, a Wickford Junction station with quick, easy, inexpensive parking should prove to be preferable to some over fighting Providence traffic and finding and paying for parking in Providence. Especially attractive if your employer does not subsidize parking, but does subsidize your transit. Also, we'll need somesort of MBTA/RIPTA combo pass system, something that is at the very least, on RIPTA's radar from what I hear.
  6. It would be possible and Providence and Worcester Railroad has made noises that they may want to do so (they'd probably want some state or Federal subsidies, but I think they could also do without that). P&W *might* actually own the third track from Pawtucket to Quonset (I'm not sure on that one), if so, they wouldn't need to fuss with Amtrak too much, though Providence Station movements would likely include working with Amtrak somehow.
  7. Wow, I haven't been over that way in quite some time.
  8. That's why I didn't put any information about any of my schools in my profile. Plus, I've changed my last name since then, I'm basically in witness protection.
  9. Neo, who runs UP is Twittering, but he is in Charlotte, so it won't be RI specific. I won't be Twittering.
  10. Oh by the way...

    Old Downcity Diner location that burned down. They are putting a new facade on the side of the American Apparel building that was exposed by the building next to it burning down. New Facade will shore up the side of the building and will include a new stairwell. The stairwell is designed so at some future date (when the economy stops being a big suck hole) a new building can be built and the stairwell will be incorporated into it. The facade with windows will be built so it can be removed when a new building is finally built on the Downcity Diner lot. For now (during the suckitude) sadly the lot will be surface parking. There was some talk of perhaps a very thin liner building being built at the street in the interim, but that would require another trip to the DDRC for approval. this would be the thread for which you were looking.
  11. I know it is more than a parking garage, but a HUGE part of the project is a parking garage and a refueling station and car wash for rental cars. Certainly it can be greened up a bit and it sounds like it is being greened up, but what exactly are the LEED standards if they can be applied for a parking garage and gas station and car wash?
