I don't have access to the article, but my guess from what's visible is that this is just a "here's what you might be able to do" visual that's part of the RFP documentation, and doesn't actually represent a real proposal that a real developer has made.

It doesn't seem to change anything with the road or bike bridge.

I love this. And have been fantasizing for a while about a project here. I'm a homeowner on the 1900 block of Aldrich and am very excited to see something coming along. Can't wait to see where it goes and be an advocate. This massing isn't amazing, but I would love something active on that corner of lynn and Frank. Townhomes on Aldrich would be amazing. Yaaaay!

Apartment tower may be next at Franklin and Lyndale (locked)

I'm in Nathan's neck of the woods, and I... um... actually woofed when I saw this.

(For the uninitiated, woofs are a fairly standard expression of ursine admiration -- but they are not often heard in an urban-planning context).

This article has a second rendering showing up to 3 retail bays heading north on lyndale. That would be so great.

I hope a developer runs with it!

This is correct. This is the broker's visualization of what might be possible, in order to draw the highest sale price. A 6-story stick box is definitely still in play.
Cushman & Wakefield’s study of VLR’s property produced conceptual renderings that show an apartment tower topping out at more than 20 stories and a three-story pedestal that steps down to shorter, existing buildings to the east, west and south. A shorter, stick-built apartment building is another possibility for the site, according to a Cushman & Wakefield press release.
Fingers crossed that someone other than Reuter Walton or North Bay get this one. Maybe it draws in Mortenson or Doran (who haven't really worked in "Uptown") and we do see something 10 stories or greater. The views from here would be incredible.

Here's the property lines, just for reference: https://gis.hennepin.us/property/map/de ... 2924440005. At 2.1 acres, this is one of the largest development sites to come up in "greater Uptown" in years. That's larger than any of the greenway-adjacent development sites, and just a tad smaller than the Sons of Norway site.

Thanks for that Hennepin map. Turn on Hybrid mode, and it’s clear they wouldn’t budge an inch (sell land or an easement) for the bike bridge, which juts out closer to the car bridge along their property.

There’s some retail on Lyndale north of Franklin on the east side, but fades out quickly due to Lyndale turning into a highway there. Thinking much the same will happen on the west side.

Getting back to the Hennepin County maps. Looks like they update their satellite view every 3 years, and the last one is 2015. Any idea how long it’ll be before 2018 shops up as a satellite option?
