4th Street Transit Station
So yesterday I was stuck without transportation and had to make a meeting at the Peppermill. I thought I'd try out the RAPID service that runs down Virginia Street. I started at the Cal Ave stop and got off at the Peppermill stop, and with only three stops in between, I made it in ten minutes, about the same amount of time it took to drive. Not bad! There is a HUGE difference between the regular service and RAPID service down Virginia Street.
Speaking of buses, here are some pictures of the 4th Street Transit Station, opening in 7 days or so. Check out the LCD monitors presumably for bus schedules and arrival/departure times! Nice touch. Click each pic for full size image.

I'm wondering, does this include rights to the large open space above the train trench? That would be a great location for a two-level commercial location, and would be an improvement over the current status of that stretch of Commercial Row. In addition, it would form a logical extension of any planned trench cover development, and would provide for another "link" to the developing Freight House district. On a side note, is the plan for development of Commercial Row across from the train station still on the books, or has that been canceled?

The Fitz's outside lights were all on this evening when I was down there. Paid for by the city council?
They might as well tear the Fitz parking structure down. Someone will figure out something to do with that space.

The city council has no money, why would they pay for the Fitz to turn it's lights on? Plus, the City doesn't even own the Fitz, Fernando Leal owns it and I assume he's paying for the lights to be on

Ribbon Cutting on October 28; first day of service on October 31.

Reno Parking Garage LLC is registered with the Secretary of State, but the directors list hasn't been posted yet. However, it used the same Registered Agent that Fernando Leal has used on ALL of his entities. Makes sense, since he (DRW Fitz) owns the parking structure over this land lease property. You have to wonder, with this new investment, are the Fitz and Golden Phoenix projects as dead as generally assumed?
