Kind of crazy that they're going from 290,000 sf down to 73,000 sf.

Rather than expand HQ in Golden Valley, Tennant will buy the Element site and relocate HQ there but keep the Golden Valley site

20 acre site in walking distance to the Eden Prairie SWLRT stations proposed for redevelopment to senior housing, market rate housing, and commercial.

Maybe they will come up with a plan to chop up the megablock.

This is awesome! More development near south west light rail! Let’s hope the development is focused on lock ability and ease of connection to the train.

Sounds like they’re doubling the density, which is good, but being that it’s right at the SWLRT station, seems way less ambitious than what is happening in Hopkins and St. Louis Park.

Don’t have a subscription to the biz journals. Without copying the exact text, can someone provide a brief summary of what the article says?

Gist:
~ Proposal to redevelop a nearly 20-acre Eden Prairie site near the intersection of Flying Cloud Drive and Prairie Center Drive.
~ 274 units of senior housing and another 250 units of market-rate rental housing on the site. The commercial portion of the site would include a 110-room hotel and about 20,000 square feet of retail space.
~ If the redevelopment team wins city approvals, the project’s first phase would involve demolition of the Broadmoor Apartments — although not until after the end of the current school year, Fletcher said. Presbyterian plans to construct its new facility on top of the apartment’s footprint and then move residents from its existing facility into the new building.
~ Bloomington-based Timberland is developing the proposal for the market-rate apartments, which would include a mix of studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. It plans to divide the 250 units between a five-story building and a seven-story building connected by a two-story common space.

The land rush is going near the suburban SWLRT stations.

The Golden Triangle station area has an office plus a 40 acre site next to the LRT station sell for $28+M

So maybe SWLRT isn’t just commuter rail after all, and we’ll be seeing real urban nodes developing around each station? That’d be great.

I’m a skeptic that the five stations counting from the end on in, Opus, City West, Golden Triangle, EP Town Center, and Southwest will have anything like the urban form we see in classic streetcar nodes. That seems really dependent on planning and development that is long past and something that isn’t returning.

To keep myself from disappointment I’m aiming my hopes for the best we’ll get is at least supportive density in biking and walking distance.

Yeah, the stations that are beyond Hopkins certainly don’t seem like they’ll be surrounded by great urban nodes.

Maybe there really is a difference between first- and second-ring suburbs.

EP planning commission rejects 3-story, 52-unit proposal with eligible affordable housing for tax credits.

Given the location, that does not surprise me. Sure, it's close to retail and the 169/Anderson Lakes interchange, but single family residence lots form a horseshoe around the back property line. Someone from those residences probably lodged a complaint. For this location, the way to go for now would probably be a few duplexes/townhomes (whether that's for sale or for rent), or a smaller building than 52 units. I suppose holding off until a council more amenable to the proposal would work, too, but that could be a decade or two.

I live in the area. There is indeed a fairly aggressive organizational effort by some neighbors to lobby against it.

The justification given was that it should be zoned in accordance with the 2040 plan, which for that property is specified as medium ( max 40 units on the property). Is there any active development of smaller apartment complexes going on in the metro area? Like does that supply even exist?

I'm not personally aware of any, but given the way rent prices are climbing, I'd take a smaller complex over no complex. Cost is probably a problem for building new smaller complexes, though, since they'll need a lot of the same things the larger complexes would, but with less space to rent out to compensate.
