Raymond Station area developments

Postby Anondson » February 15th, 2019, 8:57 pm

The Raymond and University area has had a strong attraction to redevelopment projects and proposals. I’m certain more will be coming. I felt it worth getting a thread for them.

Starting with a proposal for 120+ rentals in a mixed use proposal at 2250 University.

My only worry about the Devolopments in this area is the smell. I go over to state services for the blind about a block away. Its not horrible, you would get used to it if you live there, but I am concerned about any health impacts from breathing it in.

It's unfortunate that the first two floors of this will be parking. It's almost more like a parking ramp with wrapped by some housing and some retail - hopefully they can repurpose those parking levels in future.

I guess they had underground pollution issues so underground parking wasn't going to work.

Overall good mixed use, variety of unit sizes, density is good thing.

It will be interesting to see how much parking these apartments in the area need. The underground parking at nearby Prospect Park station apartments, Fresh Thyme grocery store seems pretty under-utilized - like I've never seen it more than half full. But my condos near Westgate Station seem to use all of the underground parking and also people parking up interior private surface spots.

The parking you see at Fresh Thyme in the Link are for the retail spaces in that building. The apartment parking is actually full its just separated out from that general parking.

So the entire underground parking area is for retail?

Because I see open spots all the time closer to the apartment entrances, also.

More open spots in retail area tho.

There is another garage door under there that leads to the apt parking. I think it goes down another level bellow that as well for residences.

I agree with you tho I think there are and will be a lot of people in the area that can just walk to the retail in those areas.

It looks like Exeter Group (developer of C&E Lofts, Custom House and Cobalt) bought the SOS Office Furniture building at 2441 University last June. This will definitely be a property to keep an eye on!

Baffled that nobody has bought out the Twin Cities Reptiles/Fire and Ice Ministries building yet.

There are some wild reptiles in that place. No pun intended.

Creative enterprise zone is doing a mural festival in Sept - if you know of any blank walls in the Raymond/Univeristy area that would make a good mural canvas, know a building owner etc, let them know.
