Brooklyn Park - General Topics

Postby lordmoke » June 3rd, 2013, 10:01 am

Preliminary designs have been unveiled for the new Brooklyn Park Library, which will be built at the location of a future Blue Line stop, and across the street from North Hennepin Community College. The building looks quite nice, with a large plaza that will open up toward both the college and light rail line:

The building is being designed by HGA, and construction should start either late 2013 or early 2014.

Hey moderators, any thought about making this a Brooklyn Park/Brooklyn Center combined "General Topics"?

Undeveloped land proposed to have 98 residential units built as row houses and something called "Flex and Grow" homes. Near 93rd and Regent Avenue.

Neighbors upset about density and traffic.

City council upset the developer is taking advantage of park land credits earned when Edinburgh USA was donated to the city to not include shared green space for the residents.

Would this be the old mall at Hwy 100 and 694?

It would appear to be this site off of Bass Lake Road.
