There's a development proposal for tiny homes in Payne-Phalen called the East Yard Cooperative (not to be confused with the "weehouse" project at Payne and Maryland by Alchemy Architects).
They would be sandwiched in between the railroad tracks and Bush Ave west of Payne Ave. They also want to repurpose the historic home (Swede Hollow origins) behind 656 Bush to be a community center for the co-op.
I suspect they are being encouraged to reuse this building to open up the site east of Payne Avenue for a larger mixed-use development that would integrate with the Bruce Vento Trail (known as the Railroad Island Eco-Village and being promoted by PPL).

Really glad that they're preserving the old Swede Hollow house. That was my only hold-up about the Eco-Village proposal.

These three houses really stand out at present (very poorly maintained) so this is a big improvement for the neighborhood.

DQ on Snelling and Hague for sale: http://www.evolutionrealty.com/listing/ ... -mn-55104/

Could be a nice site for a redevelopment. It is zoned B2, not sure what that equates to over in Minneapolis.

It will be rezoned T2 (traditional neighborhoods, i.e. mixed use) in the South Snelling Rezoning to go before the council sometime soon.
