They started working on something new in the old Rainbow parking lot. A long chunk of the parking lot is all fenced off and torn up, as well as the sidewalk the curved around the Wendy's. Wonder if this is the beginning of that 5 story tall apartment complex they mentioned at a community meeting a couple years back.
Is this the Midtown Corner development?

It looks like it is, but they're digging up the wrong side of the parking lot for it if so. Currently it's the long strip all in front of the ALDI that's gone. I'm going to guess they're going to put down all new parking lot there first for ALDI (cause it was pretty shitty) and then dig up the other half afterwards for the actual building.

They've finished up most of the revamp of the half of the parking lot in front of the ALDI as well as the road coming in off of Minnehaha in past the Wendy's aside from some cosmetic stuff like grass/trees. They changed up the road width, looks like they're trying to gear the whole area here down to make it less used as a through street and just as a way into a parking lot or the businesses here. They've already broke ground on the other half of the lot where the new apartment structure is supposed to be going up. Wonder how far they'll get before the winter comes.

So maybe this was discussed under some different thread or name but I can't find evidence of it. Since this project is right by my house and works toward reducing the acres of needless parking lots that dominate the highly-promising intersection of Minnehaha and Lake, I dug into this a bit.

I'm a bit surprised that it didn't attract more attention here because it looks like they waived the parking requirement for this one, with just 131 spots for 190 units. I know that's been happening more and more, and with so much parking in this area it's really welcome, but I'm still super pleased to see that happened here.

Now if only *some* kind of development would come to the intersection corner of the ridiculous Target parking field...
