According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC)
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a meeting of the Real Estate Development Advisory Committee of the RIOC Board of Directors will be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. at the RIOC administrative office, 591 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, New York.

An audio webcast of the meeting will be available soon thereafter.

During March 6 Gristedes Grand Re-Opening, I spoke with Main Street Master Leaseholder Hudson Related's David Kramer. According to Mr. Kramer:
...Trellis is starting renovation sometime this calendar year.... two more stores are about to open... three or four in the pipeline...

... Main Street retail is going to look great, its going to be populated with much better stores and I think success will beget success...
Here's the rest of the interview.

Hudson Related is also scheduled to begin the Main Street Arcade renovations,

 including removing of Arcade windows, very soon.

Hopefully, we will get more information tomorrow.

Unfortunately, it's still every bit as important as some people think it is when it comes to quality and the sheer feeling of sexcam luxury that the GSII provides. 9 scRnd 2: Sc in next 2 dc, dc in each st to the chain 2 space, work 2 sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around.

When will Hudson Related post signs at the tram and subway to drive visitor traffic to shop and eat at the Main Street stores?

I just listened to the operations meeting from last night - the Garden Club issues seem to have gotten completely out of hand. It appears their voting rights are still stuck in the 1790's. Will those issues also get brought up at this meeting?

I think RIOC should issue an all-day unlimited red bus pass - similar to the Fun Pass the MTA used to have. It could be sold at the Manhattan side of the tram along and/or advertised/sold on the tram; a detailed but portable map/guide to the island could be available to take for free. This way, visitors who wish to roam on the island for a day do not need to pay the red bus fare repeatedly to get from place to place. The suggested tour could start with a stop at the kiosk (where the red bus pass could also be sold and the free guide distributed). The visitor could then walk along south on the W side of the island to FFP & Southpoint Park. The visitor could review the info in the guide and then might then take the bus to the next landmark/destination - Blackwell House/Park. The visitor's next stop could be the Chapel of the Good Shepherd/Plaza and the notable/interesting architecture and the quaint stores on Main St. The visitor could continue roaming northward on their way to the next set of landmarks - Dayspring Church & the Octagon. Or they could hop on the red bus again if they wish to ride to the Octagon. From the Octagon, the map would detail the walk along the shoreline to the next landmark, the Lighthouse/Park. By then, the visitor may wish to take the bus back to "town" - maybe deboarding at MP stopping off for a stroll through the leafy square to snap photos and to have a coffee at the outdoor cafe at Gristedes after exploring Motorgate gallery. This trip throughout RI, all for a cost of say $.50 for an all-day pass might cement the notion of RI as a fun place to explore and visit, a "different", breezy/sunny alternative to City parks. The guide could also point out that Socrates Sculpture Park, Noguchi Museum and Rainey Park in Queens are all located within short walking distance of RI/Motorgate over the RI bridge, and even give the Queens walking/bus routes from Socrates back to mass transit so that the visitor does not feel stranded on Vernon approx a half-mile away from the nearest train.
