15th Avenue SE Urban Design Plan

Background and Purpose

The Marcy-Holmes neighborhood undertook a master plan in 2003. The City adopted the plan in December 2003. Since that time, the neighborhood completed additional planning work regarding direction for specific redevelopment sites, which was adopted by City Council in January 2007.

Building on guidance in both of these for 15th Avenue SE, Marcy Holmes has recently completed a second supplement to the neighborhood master plan, the 15th Avenue SE Urban Design Plan.

The purpose of this document is to articulate to the development community and potential implementation partners the community expectations for new, aggressive, high-quality development on 15th Avenue SE. The document outlines a design strategy, makes recommendations, and shows conceptual plans for the three and a half block study area.

Current Status

The 15th Avenue SE Urban Design Plan has been completed was adopted by the Minneapolis City Council on March 27th, 2009. The final draft is available at the link below.
