The proposed Seven Corners Development will result in the redevelopment of an approximately .9-acre site. Mortenson Development, Inc.

The proposed Project would include development of retail, student residential (400 units), and hotel uses (160 rooms), along with parking to accommodate those uses. The new building is being designed to include a 4-story base with two towers; the hotel tower would be 12 stories tall and the student residential tower would be 30 stories tall.  

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.
