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.
