Heard Harlem Irving is closing on the property in early-mid April.

I went by the site the other day. Some of the windows appeared to be boarded up. It looks like the anytime fitness is no longer there. I also noticed that there were a few orange construction cones in the parking lot just East of 29th Ave., Southeast.

I live in the area and use the train stop daily, will gladly report and photograph any changes I see. I was hoping someone here would know when the construction starts, but I haven't found anything in public documents.

I go by this construction site each at least twice a week. What intrigues me, is that it's not a construction site. Everything looks the way it always has. Anyone have any ideas as to when they are anticipated to break ground? I believe they have passed all the city hurdles.

I have been thinking the same thing. The buildings have seemingly been vacated for a while, but there's no sign of activity. What are they waiting for?

Lots of heavy digging occurring on the lot across SE 4th St from this, and it looks like the community garden is being removed. Related to this project, or something else?

What project is that? I know that PPL means Project Pride in Living. What are they building?

Housing. I know they own the site and recently got funding from the city to build some.

The garden moved but is still on the lot. I might be totally wrong, but my recollection is that they're building a rain garden or something here as some sort of placeholder.

I know the city is removing some tanks on the lot behind Rise. What is actually going in there? I heard rumblings on here about some 250 Apt building?

Cornerstone still owns the property to the north, that thread is here: https://forum.streets.mn/viewtopic.php?f ... 9&start=40.

I'll write a brief update in that thread, as it looks like the project concept is coming along from what was talked about before.

Also, brief update-- biked through the area. They're digging up part of 30th to do some work on utility pipes, and overheard in the new local cafe that there's some asbestos removal still going on. Contractor's field office is now in place in the lot just to the north.
