Letter from Lupe Development, sent on March 17, 2023:

Lupe Development who, in partnership with the Wall Companies as Bluff Street Development, is proposing redevelopment of the surface parking lot located at 600 Main Street SE with an affordable housing project. Concept plans for the project are for a 7-story building with approximately 80 affordable dwelling units and enclosed parking.

Lupe and Wall also partnered to develop and own the Stone Arch Apartments (601-701 Main Street) and Stone Arch Apartments 2 (520 Second Street SE), which are located across Main Street from the development site.

As a first step in the process to obtain zoning approvals from the City of Minneapolis for the project, we will be applying to change the land use classifications that were applied to the site in the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The site is currently guided for both future land use and built form as “Parks.” However, we have owned the site for over 20 years and understand from Park Board staff that they have no plan to acquire the site for park use. We propose to amend the 2040 Plan to guide the future land use of the site as “Urban Neighborhood” and to guide the built form for the site as “Corridor 6.”

You are invited to participate in a community engagement session regarding the project and the proposed amendments to the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. For your convenience, the meeting will be conducted on Zoom, and recorded to permit documentation of the discussion. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 4th from 6:30 7:30 pm.
