Is this the first (and only) market rate housing project in South Minneapolis east of 35W and not on the Blue Line? Other than Parkway West (46th & 46th), which was built at the very beginning of this boom cycle (2012-ish), I'm pretty sure it is.

There is that Yellow Tree project replacing the gas station at 38th St & 24th Ave, but you could call that 38th St Station adjacent, even if it's a bit of a stretch until the 3/8-mile between there and Hiawatha fills in. I'm sure the developer will certainly market it as being walkable to light rail.

Anyhoo, that's certainly a testament to the strength of the south Minneapolis rental market and the rising tide of the area in general, even if this Cedar-Parkway location is a semi-unique sweet spot of business / transportation / park access.

The Central (2nd Ave & 35th St) was market-rate, I believe? Though that is only technically east of 35W.

Oh yeah, that was Yellow Tree’s first new construction development I believe (and next door to a dilapidated old apartment bldg they’d recently rehabbed). I bet we’ll see more small projects from them on 38th Street that’s not necessarily super close to the Blue Line, if good/cheap land is available.
