The total project area encompasses a .68 acre site. The 600 Washington Avenue SE project is a proposed 27-story, multi-use, transit-oriented development (TOD) located along the METRO Green Line LRT in Minneapolis. The project consists of a multi-family residential building with up to 450 residential units, approximately 12,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and up to 201 enclosed parking spaces.
Copies of the EAW will be available for review at the downtown Minneapolis Central Library located at 300 Nicollet Mall, and in the office of the City’s CPED, Land Use, Design and Preservation Section at 505 Fourth Ave. S., 320 Public Service Building. Notice will be published in the EQB Monitor on Monday, April 4th, 2016. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4th, 2016. It is anticipated that the Zoning and Planning Committee at its regular meeting on May 19th, 2016, or at a subsequent meeting, will receive a report and recommendation from City staff, hear comment from all parties and consider the adequacy of this EAW and the need for an Environmental Impact Statement for this proposal. The City Council will act on the recommendation of this Committee at a subsequent meeting on May 27th, 2016.
