Malcolm Yards Phase One (food hall, apartment buildings, grocery store)

Postby HiawathaGuy » August 10th, 2018, 4:25 pm

Malcolm Yards phase one: Food hall, grocery store and 287 apartments in Prospect Park
*LOCKED*

Basics:
The first phase of the project is going before the city’s Planning Commission Committee of the Whole next week.

Wall Cos. is partnering with a Denver company called Eclectic Collective, which developed several food halls there, including Stanley Marketplace. Patricia Wall is heading up that project for Wall Cos. (Laura Chin is no longer involved). The food hall will be a re-use of the Harris Machinery Building and will have nearly a dozen food vendors and a centralized bar with local beer and spirits.

Construction on the food hall could begin this fall and wrap up in the summer of 2019.

Wall Cos. has also sold a piece of its land for a rock climbing gym that hasn’t begun construction. Still, even after the apartments and food hall are built, there will still roughly 14 acres left for future development.

Wall said he has no specific plans yet for those acres. He originally hoped to build a research park on the site. While plans have changed, he still hopes the project can attract jobs and perhaps University of Minnesota-related science applications.

This'll be big - it's worth its own topic.

Has anyone heard anything about what grocery it would be? 33k square feet is kind of a weird size - too big for an Aldi or Trader Joe's (not that another Trader Joe's would happen in Minneapolis, as they would have to sacrifice the liquor store) but too small for a Cub or Hy-Vee. Even the urban Cub at 46th and Hiawatha is going to be 50k square feet. A Lunds & Byerly's maybe? playing around with Google Maps, the CenHen L&B is about 30-35k square feet, including the pharmacy.

Are they still talking about moving the transitway?

Clearly a specialty grocery. An Asian grocery was the rumor that was shared with me on Twitter.

Love most of this project, with the exception of the parking. The underground parking seems excessive for a location that is so well connected, and the surface parking lot on 30th Ave SE seems especially unnecessary. The surface lot for Fresh Thyme is already annoying enough, I'm not thrilled about the idea of so much more parking and yet another surface lot in this neighborhood.

Not sure I really get a food hall over there, when the walk and bike sheds to the north are always going to be limited.

It's obviously a little different, but that hasn't exactly stopped Surly from being a smashing success in this area. There are still 1-2 hour waits on weekends to get a table.

It bugs me that they're not going to put a roof back on the food hall. It's one thing for the Mill City Museum to occupy a burned out ruin, but here it would be worlds better to restore the old roofline and have the foodhall in an airy, vaulted space.

I'm sure that cost is a major factor. Personally, I love the idea of it being open air.

Well, it's going to have a roof, obviously.

From the renderings, it appears that they'll be installing a new roof at what would have been the floor line between the first and second floors of the space?

I just think it looks very awkward and would have been better with the original roofline.

Oh. Probably just cost savings, then. I agree 100%.

Looks like some preliminary site prep is starting at the old Harris Machinery building.

Food hall renovation looks to be well underway. Lots of equipment on-site looks to be stabilizing the exterior.
