Development Begins at Hi-Lake Triangle

Hugging the light rail station on Lake Street is a new construction site, which will transform in the course of 11 months into the Hi-Lake Triangle. While not technically in our coverage area (it’s actually in the East Phillips neighborhood), it will be a substantial building just on the other side of the LRT line.

The building will be a mixed-use space with 5,300 square feet of retail space (which could either amount to two or three businesses) and 64 senior apartments. Wellington Management is overseeing the property development and has secured one retail lease, which they would not name at this time.

Hi-Lake Triangle construction site

Current construction site of the Hi-Lake Triangle project. This senior housing development will be adjacent to the LRT station, which provides access to downtown, the Mall of America, and the airport. It is also near the Hi-Lake Shopping Center, the YWCA, and the current home of the Midtown Farmers Market.

The Hi-Lake Triangle will be located at 2200 Hiawatha Avenue in Minneapolis. A special thanks to reader Erik for tipping us off to the construction.

    Its actually in the East Phillips neighborhood, overseen by the East Phillips Improvement Coalition (EPIC)

  2. Rob Bixby says:

    I love seeing new development on this end of Lake Street, I just wish all these new apartment buildings didn’t look pretty much the same. Guess that’s just the architectural style of today though.

  3. What will become of our wonderful Saturday morning Farmer’s Market?

    • Rebekah says:

      This development is across the street from the current market location.

      I believe the fate of the Market is still up in the air. At a meeting several months ago, the School Board said that as long as they owned the property the Market could stay. However, they are actively working to sell the property. Depending on the buyer, the market could stay or may have to find a new location.

      We will definitely be following this and will post information as decisions are made.

  4. Carol and Greg says:

    Will this apartment building be subsidized housing for seniors?

  5. Joyce says:

    Imagine it. Between the Hiawatha overpass, Lake Street, the train station, and Teppanyaki Grill. Rarified air. Have you ever tried to park a car in that area?
