I was thinking about a monorail to/from ORH.

It turns out Las Vegas just built one and it only cost $150,000,000 per mile. The writer of the article says it should have only cost $50,000,000 per mile.

I come up with six miles from ORH to 290 at Hope Ave - shortest straight line distance.

That would only cost $300,000,000 to $900,000,000.

Let's see, at 10,000 passengers per year for tes years, that's only $9,000 per passenger.

Bring Whole Foods to Grafton Street

Before CitySquare or any other downtown development breaks ground, in order to help make sure these projects are successful, you need to have a catalyst to continuously bring all the six-figure earners within a 30-mile radius into downtown.

Granted, the Hanover Theatre and the DCU Center bring people downtown, but only for certain dates and shows. How do you bring high-income earners into downtown on a continuing basis and help serve as a spark for downtown development? Simple, attract a Whole Foods market to the old Shaw’s location on Grafton Street.

The Massachusetts presence of Whole Foods basically consists of a cluster of stores in and around Boston, with Framingham being closest to Worcester, and one store in Hadley. There is basically a 90-mile gap between Framingham and Hadley. Don’t think that Whole Foods would succeed in Worcester? Drive around the West Side or Greendale areas on garbage days and see all the Whole Foods bags being used to recycle. Opportunity knocks, Worcester. It’s time to answer the door.
