The good news is that there will soon be a state-of-the-art public service building to better connect the seven city buildings that are spread all over downtown. The bad news 1000 parking spaces are currently on the site of this building.

The 501 ramp is across from City Hall. It's coming down to make way for the new building. There is an increase in people working and living in downtown Minneapolis. I would guess the loss of 1000 spots is going to make things difficult for some people. Especially on those in the area of city hall.

But on the other hand, it will be a good thing to get offices that are spread out, into one building. Not just for the workers, but for those of us that need those services.
