This EAW studies the proposed Abbott Northwestern Surgical and Critical Care Pavilion located at 2742 10th Avenue South, 800, 916, 920, and 924 28th Street East, 2651 and 2753 Chicago Avenue, and 2701 Elliot Avenue in Minneapolis. Allina Health is proposing to construct the Abbott Northwestern Surgical and Critical Care Pavilion (Care Pavilion). The Care Pavilion project proposes replacing the four-story Ramp 1 with an approximately 588,000 square foot, 10-story quaternary Care Pavilion. The Care Pavilion will include 30 operating rooms, expanded heart services, four floor of inpatient beds, and a shelled floor for future patient care. The Care Pavilion will provide centralized kitchen and sterile spaces for the larger Abbott Northwestern campus. The project will also include roadway access system modifications, parking spaces, roadway reconstruction, and outdoor amenity and landscaping 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, June 21, 2022. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 21, 2022. It is anticipated that the BIHZ Committee at its regular meeting on Monday, August 8, 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, August 18, 2022.

Copies of this EAW can also be provided to individuals by email. For further information or to submit comments on the EAW, contact Andrew Frenz, Principal City Planner.
