So a friend of mine told me they were tearing Joyce Methodist Church down and putting up apartments. I'm kind of surprised, because last I heard they were turning the church into apartments. I can't find anything about it being torn down and replaced. Then again this person who told me is often living in her own world and gets things totally f'd up.

Nope, they're definitely remodeling the church into apartments, not tearing it down. The city's website is down right now, but I think it was finally fully approved in Novemberish.

Oof. Do I know this friend? I had a friend of mine say they heard someone was tearing down the "Sears" in downtown Minneapolis. And I was just like, Daytons? They're definitely not doing that. Refused to believe me.

Anyways, no they're not tearing down the church.

Yea I used to own a house across 31st St from the church for 15 years. Always loved the building and it's historical significant architecture to Minneapolis. Wouldn't believe that it would be torn down. So I did read up a little on the building being converted to an apartment building. Approved for 51 units and no parking requirements. The no parking kind of bites.

Here's the October 5, 2020 packet for it: https://lims.minneapolismn.gov/download ... %2031%20St

It's a great project, imo. Reuse of a pretty structure, 34 new homes, no added parking in an area where it's easy to live car-free. Worth checking out the packet for the floor plans, there are interesting apartment layouts in the NW and SW corners especially.

Apparently Yellow Tree has a project on the 4200 block of Nicollet (under construction already) that I didn't know about. They seem to up out of nowhere without much controversy somehow.
Yeah, that and the Curran's redevelopment will really transform that strip.

An article about that one: https://www.southwestjournal.com/news/d ... et-avenue/
I've never seen Yellow Tree linked with either of these two projects. Is there another one that they're working on?

Yellow Tree isn't just a developer, they are a construction contractor (and property manager) as well. They seem to really be hitting their stride with building buildings that are of the same type as the ones they develop themselves. If you go on their website, you'll see Nic 42 listed as a project where they are performing construction services.

Is your friend a suburbanite? My guess is they're thinking of the Lake Street Kmart (Kmart being owned by Sears) and they think that's part of "downtown". Regardless, that's a confused friend.

Hi. There is a new family clinic being constructed on Nicollet near Nicollet and Franklin.
