The site consists of two parcels, which are currently surface parking lots, plus the public alley between them. The project is anticipated to include approximately 719,000 square feet of office space, 21,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space, and a three-level underground parking ramp with approximately 183 parking spaces.
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 Tuesday, May 17, 2022. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, 2022. It is anticipated that the Business, Inspections, Housing & Zoning Committee at its regular meeting on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, or at a subsequent meeting, will receive a report and recommendation from City staff 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 Thursday, July 21, 2022.
