Pillsbury A Mill Complex Project draft environmental impact statement available
The draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Pillsbury A Mill Complex redevelopment is available for public review at the downtown Minneapolis Public Library, 250 Marquette Ave.; the Southeast Community Library, 1222 SE 4 th St.; and Minneapolis City Hall, Room 210, 350 S 5 th St. The draft EIS and supporting information are also available for review on the City of Minneapolis Planning Department website. For an electronic copy of the draft EIS, email email@example.com.
The Pillsbury A Mill Complex, which is a former flourmill, is located on a 7.9 acre site bounded north and south by 2 nd St. SE and Main St. SE, east and west by 3 rd Ave. SE and 6 th Ave. SE. The site is across the Mississippi River from Downtown Minneapolis in the St. Anthony Falls Historic District.
The proposed redevelopment would preserve and renovate for commercial and residential use all but one of the historic structures at the site including the Pillsbury A Mill building, which is a National Historic Landmark, and seven additional historic resources on the site. The concrete grain elevators located along 2 nd St. SE would be demolished. Six new mid or high rise residential buildings and their linking structures along Main St. will be added to the site. Alternatives in the draft EIS test four variations of height and massing that include 759 to 1,095 housing units and 105,000 square feet of commercial space. The new construction will vary in height with the tallest towers, at 24 and 27 stories, flanking 5 th Ave. SE.
