Availability of the environmental assessment worksheet (EAW)
The 22-story Calhoun Tower building with 113 units, exists onsite and will remain as part of the project. The site is located adjacent to the proposed West Lake Street station for the Southwest Light Rail Transit (LRT – Metro Green Line Extension) and the Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail. The Midtown Greenway ends just to the northeast of the site. The project will be developed over four development phases beginning in 2018 with full project build out by 2025.
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, March 12, 2018. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. It is anticipated that the Zoning and Planning Committee at its regular meeting on May 3, 2018, 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 acted on the recommendation of this Committee at a subsequent meeting on May 11, 2018.
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.
