Hennepin Healthcare Purple Parking Ramp Expansion

The proposed project would expand the Hennepin Healthcare Purple Parking Ramp in downtown Minneapolis.

Availability of the environmental assessment worksheet (EAW)

The project area is bounded by Portland Avenue, Park Avenue, 6th Street South and 7th Street South. The project includes the construction of a 501,743 square foot, multi-level parking ramp with ground level medical/office/support space, and pedestrian skyway and tunnel accesses. There would be approximately 1,000 parking spaces and approximately 84,000 square feet of medical/office/support space.

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 24, 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 23, 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.

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