The Minneapolis City Council is expected to consider the Longfellow Station Redevelopment Plan Friday, Aug. 31, 2007 following a public hearing about the project at the Community Development Committee Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2007.

The proposed project includes mixed-use housing and neighborhood commercial space at 3815 Hiawatha Ave. (the former Purina Mill Site.) with easy access to Light Rail Transit. The project will include 185 to 300 rental and/or ownership housing units, 35,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial space, and approximately 400 structured and below-grade parking spaces. The project design also includes one or more green roofed structures, an innovative storm water runoff pond system, and an internal system of pedestrian connections. At least 20 percent of the housing units will be affordable to households at 50 percent of Metropolitan Median Income (MMI).

The redevelopment plan establishes a new redevelopment project area, establishes objectives for redevelopment, and identifies land uses for the redevelopment of the project area.
