Check out the following map of the skyway system
The light rail currently runs into downtown on 5th Street. There are three skyway crossings on 5th Street. Current stops on the light rail are at Chicago (just off the map), between 4th and 3rd Avenues, at Nicollet and an Hennepin. Replace the last three with two stops at the current skyway crossings at the US West and Lumber Exchange buildings and remove the crossing between. Add a crossing from the 5th Street Towers to the US West building to allow skyway travel to the 5th Street Towers.
What could be cooler than riding the train to downtown and debarking into the skyway?
Bonus content: When I left for lunch today, the elevator was working. When I returned it was not. The elevator was out on Thursday as well. I spent a big chunk of my day opening the locked stairwell door for people that didn't have keys. The disadvantage of the elevator breaking while I was at lunch was that I didn't take my keys with me. So, upon returning, I had to knock and hope someone nearby would hear and care enough to let me in. Thankfully, my door knocking skills were honed canvassing from door-to-door in the Minnesota winter; you really don't want to be left out in the cold because someone didn't hear you knock.
