MPHA’s Elders Community Center and Senior Assisted Living Facility

As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MPHA) has been awarded two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Capital Fund Recovery Competition (CFRC) grants totaling almost $20.2 million. Construction on these two new facilities is expected to be substantially complete in 2012.

Heritage Park Background Neighborhood Information
The Heritage Park redevelopment on Minneapolis' near northside is transforming a 145-acre vacant site that formerly contained the Sumner Field, Glenwood, Lyndale and Olson public housing developments into a stable, affordable and sustainable urban neighborhood on the western doorstep of Minneapolis’ downtown area.  

This new 145 acre, 900-housing-unit development is based upon the best Minneapolis housing design traditions. Housing types include single-family homes, duplexes, garden apartments, townhouses and carriage houses. Earlier phases of this redevelopment are complete with both rental and ownership units.

The successful completion of this project will result in a mixed-income, mixed-density, culturally diverse and amenity-rich neighborhood. The total estimated cost of the project, approximately $225 million (roughly divided between $75 million in public infrastructure costs and $150 million for housing development), is supported by numerous public and private funding sources including the federal Housing and Urban Development Department, the State of Minnesota, Hennepin County, the Metropolitan Council, the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, and the City of Minneapolis.
