Minneapolis city council approves Dinkytown apartment complex

The Minneapolis City Council approved development for a controversial apartment complex in Dinkytown Friday, overturning a committee’s decision to deny the rezoning.

The Council voted 9-4 in favor of rezoning.

The six-story apartment complex, proposed by Opus Group, will replace businesses and a surface parking lot on 14th Avenue Southeast and Fifth Street Southeast.

I Only Hope

I just hope this isn't a scheme to stuff the pockets of rich developers while forcing any student who lives in it to increase their student loan indebtedness.  We know that throughout the city, commercial development is never in the affordable housing category. Since students aren't high-paid professionals, these apartments have to be affordable or they are just an attempt to gouge people with little money.
