So this is a different project than the Seward Redesign, right?

I'll have to add this to my Development Tracker spreadsheet, and somebody could also add it to the map.

The Seward Redesign area is farther north and on the opposite side of the highway/tracks, closer to the Franklin Avenue station (but still relatively far away from that). This is right next to the Lake Street station.

I like it. I'll like it even more if the building is actually in the shape of a triangle!

Odd that their parking access is through the Little Ceasers lot. That's already a hard place to park at.

I also find it interesting that the rooftop deck overlooks the LRT station, I guess it's better than overlooking the cemetery, but why not put it on the north side where you can see downtown?

I sure hope they don't put units on the 2nd and 3rd floors facing the LRT viaduct....

If I remember right this building is targeted to seniors, so maybe they're hoping noise won't be a problem for their residents.

Those units will probably be reserved for the hearing impaired!

I just saw the original Blues Brothers movie again. This development reminds me of Elmore's apartment along the El (except the LRT is quieter).

St. Paul-based Wellington Management is securing the final city approvals and subsidies it needs to proceed with construction of a 64-unit, affordable senior apartment complex abutting the Lake Street/Midtown stop on the Hiawatha light-rail line.

The Minneapolis Planning Commission said Monday that Wellington's request for $1.7 million in tax increment financing (TIF) is consistent with goals laid out in the city plan.

It next goes before the City Council, where the TIF request will be considered at three hearings in September.

I think they originally placed the building too close (or within) the Midtown Greenway streetcar easement.

Saw a site plan for this project today. There are 50 surface parking spaces on the site. :(

Are they on the "surface" of a tall building?

I saw the plans too - they involved a 2nd floor wading pool with a cascading waterfall of Olde English. It will be interesting to see how the facade of cardboarditious panels holds up to a Minnesota winter.
