Downtown's Rockler Fur building could become housing option for Native community
"...the current applicant is proposing a conversion of the building into 48 residential units of supportive housing for formerly homeless single adults; each unit is approximately 400 square feet. The basement and first floor would also have a community room, bike storage, laundry facility, and shared workspace. Bimosedaa is applying for state and federal historic tax credits and therefore the project will also be reviewed by the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service."
Would be renamed the Bimosedaa Building. First floor would become a lounge, with a lot of tenant amenities on the floor as described above. It's a bit disappointing that there's no effort to restore retail to this space, but it's not a huge deal. I can dream about the adjacent surface lot being someday redeveloped with a good anchor store.
