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.
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.
