That street isn't part of this plan because it crosses property lines. The city has talked about putting it there, but has to work with multiple property owners. It would be a great addition.

Grandview District Redevelopment - Edina

Postby Anondson » May 22nd, 2017, 9:06 pm

Interlachan Court Apartments, 5300 Vernon, were recently sold because the reclusive millionaire owner died at age 100, she kept rents far below market rates for Edina. The new owner is bringing the rents near to the immediate area rents and tenants are being shown the door (60 days) if they can't pay new rents. Many have lived there a few decades and are very elderly. An example was a resident paying $740 having rent jump to $1,195. Up $455/month.

The city does not usually get involved in private real estate transactions, City Manager Scott Neal said. Edina, he said, does not have individual tenant protection policies.

“This is a policy area that we’re going to have to get serious about,” he said.

I’d like to see some of the math on that $2N to $100M per year.

Yeah....$100M per year added revenue would be a game changer for the city. I find that figure very hard to believe. Just some fuzzy math off the top of my head: $100M per year would have to equate to at least 10% taxes on properties worth $1B. I don't think a.) properties in Edina are taxed quite that high, and b.) the properties (improvements) would be worth $1B.

Maybe it was a typo, and should have read $2M to $10M per year. That'd be more believable. $2 - $100 is also an insanely wide range.

Maybe it includes all improvements that could happen including already coming bus garage and future municipal site development?

Hennepin County asked the city of Edina to upgrade the classification of Vernon Avenue, from W 53rd to TH 100, from b-minor to a-minor arterial.

http://current.mnsun.com/2017/08/25/cha ... -in-edina/

The article mentions thus means functionally the county can apply for federal funding to help. Vernon ends up as a major reliever of traffic when 62 is backed up and right now is a major reliever with 169 closed at Nine Mile Creek. The Vernon bridge over the Dan Patch line is 75 years old and reached the end of its useful life and its structurally deficient. That bridge is due to be replaced in 3-5 years and the classification upgrade is said that it can help the county get funding to replace.

The bridge design of the replacement bridge better accommodate a new future use of the rail, be it making room for upgrading from single track to two track, or a future with a north-south regional trail.
