Wish there was more greenery along this stretch ie a thin boulevard in the middle. It's not a very appealing place to spend time.

Some greenery would help a lot. I never cared for the 66th and Penn corner, especially the look of CVS looming over the intersection. It's a great location though. Very close to everything.

They need to make the entrances better. That entrance by ARC is horrendous with that bump to get in, and there is an island there. Really, it is kind of like one entrance on the 66th street side that has the left turn lane. Other wise, you take your life in your hands with people who fly coming down Penn going south bound. I hate trying to get into that parking lot. Traffic is so bad, and backs up, it is hard a lot of times to get in and out of the parking lots along many of the businesses during high peak times. Greenery, better turn lanes, all would help I think. But, that takes money.

that whole stretch of Penn Ave is an eye sore. it's embarrassing to have that be the front door into Richfield from South Minneapolis or those coming off Crosstown. All those overhead wires and junky looking store fronts is horrendous. I sure hope this area gets redeveloped SOON!!!!
