The public is invited to a special meeting of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization’s Land Use & Transportation / Housing committees on Thursday, November 3 at 6:30 p.m. at 2225 East Lake Street, Room #140. The agenda includes a presentation on plans for redevelopment of the 6.5-acre 2225 East Lake, owned by Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS). Following the presentation, the development team will field audience questions.
In December 2010, the MPS board voted to support L&H Station Group’s concept redevelopment plan for the property, a plan that included space for the Midtown Farmers Market (which has operated on the site for nine seasons) and addressed other community objectives. At the Nov. 3 meeting, L&H Station Group will present revised plans in anticipation of approaching the City Planning Commission and Minneapolis City Council for approvals to break ground on the first of several anticipated phases of construction.
Efforts by residents and local government to shape the future of 2225 East Lake extend back over 10 years. Learn more about redevelopment objectives including the Midtown Farmers Market Program, Sustainability Performance Goals, and more at the City of Minneapolis development page for this property, and Corcoran’s Land Use & Transportation page. Please contact Eric Gustafson at CNO with questions about the Nov. 3 meeting.
