California Street Silos

Postby relux » May 11th, 2018, 11:19 am

While Bunge silos have demolition going on right now, the silos at 2401 California St NE (not exact address) are also coming down at this moment. I haven't heard any plans for this property?

Yes to townhomes! Especially ones that have a nice amount of variety and present themselves as individual buildings. This project will blend nicely with the small detached homes in this pocket while adding a lot of density.

Wow, this sounds like a great project. I'm surprised to see the townhomes are for-sale and not rental. Very unexpected. It says 4 of them will be affordable under a land-trust model, which is also cool. I wonder what the asking price will be for the 'market-rate' townhomes... north of $325k I'd guess. Even if they are very pricey for the square footage, I'd guess they won't have any problem selling as long as the market stays hot. There's just nothing like that on the market, so the demand is likely there, probably primarily from people who already live in the neighborhood and are ready to downsize from their SFH.

There are four new-build townhomes nearby off Lowry, close to the new Market BBQ. I think they're rentals?

I like the townhomes, but I'd like to see just a little more differentiation between units.

New project from different developers for block of land by the California Building. LS Black Developers presented to the Bottineau Neighborhood Association last night and signaled their intent to submit the project to the city in the next few months. Highlights from the presentation - looks like a 7 floors multiunit with the first floor being partially reserved for "production space" (could be artist or maker studios possibly but some production space is required by the city), there's going to be a ton of indoor and outdoor parking for residents and it's projected to be 60% AMI for about 170ish units (didn't catch the exact unit number). Early stages of the project so all things could change but they seemed genuine about adding more affordable 2 and 3 bedroom units to the city.

The planning commission got scarily close to wilting under the fervent neighborhood opposition, but ended up approving this last night, with the additional condition that a full 50% of the ground floor be production space.

Hopefully at the expense of some of the parking. What a weird requirement?

Buildings like this are great because not everyone who lives in an apartment wants to be above loud commercial streets.

This one sucks though. It's a really good example of Minneapolis prairies that a future development should integrate into, rather than ultimately destroy. You can do this with modular units effectively. Or build taller on one side of the site to meet the density you would meet with the full site.
