The proposed project includes the redevelopment of 270 Hennepin (formerly known as 240 Hennepin), 21 North Washington (formerly known as 17 North Washington), and part of 24 3rd Street North in downtown Minneapolis, MN. The site consists of numerous parcels, which are currently surface parking lots, the existing Dolphin Group Building, and a redevelopment of 270 Hennepin that is currently under construction. The project anticipates two developments accommodating up to 798 residential units, 28,000 square feet of retail, and up to 694 parking spaces. The site is bound by Washington Avenue North, Hennepin Avenue, 1st Avenue North and North 3rd Street.
Copies of the EAW will be available for review at the downtown Minneapolis Central Library located at 300 Nicollet Mall. Notice will be published in the EQB Monitor on Monday, September 14, 2020. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.
