Procedures for Buying a Vacant Lot
CPED has an inventory of properties in the city for sale for housing. New properties are initially offered for sale in the Star Tribune, on Sundays in the classified section #717 and in Finance and Commerce. Properties remaining after the original advertising are added to the Vacant Lot List which includes the property address, lot dimensions and selling price. If you are unable to view the Vacant Lot List online, call (612) 673-5225, or visit CPED offices at 105 Fifth Avenue South, Crown Roller Mill Building, Suite 200 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
The sale of properties to prospective buyers is contingent on design criteria and is subject to the approval of the City Council. Prices are determined by appraisals and are not negotiable. CPED has the right to refuse any and all proposals received.
