Lot A

Lot A Stadium & DT View

Project Overview

The City of Minneapolis is seeking proposals for redevelopment of two contiguous parcels of land in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood – Lot A, which is owned by the City and Lot A1, which is owned by Hennepin County. Both lots are near and northwest of the corner of 4th Street South and Cedar Avenue.

The City seeks to create an Africa Village cultural area and public market, which will provide both shopping and economic development opportunities for rising entrepreneurs. The development may also include affordable housing, public/community space and parking.

Request for Proposal (RFP) Information

There will be an optional pre-proposal meeting on Friday, November 15 at 10:00 a.m. at Crown Roller Mill, located at 105 5th Avenue South, Suite 200.
