Van Cleve plans available for review
Several plan documents regarding a proposal to convert the Bunge Grain Elevator site, near 13th and Como avenues SE, into the Van Cleve housing project are available for review and comment. Project for Pride in Living (PPL) has proposed a multi-phase income-integrated development that may eventually include 236 housing units, consisting of rental and condo apartments and townhouses (85 rental and 151 ownership). PPL is planning the adaptive reuse of the landmark "headhouse" (a rectilinear vertical structure used for grain distribution) for housing and will also be constructing four new residential buildings as part of this development.
The project will have 85 rental units affordable at or below 50 percent of Metropolitan Median Income (MMI) and five Habitat for Humanity townhomes, which exceeds the 20 percent requirement under the City Affordable Housing Policy.
The City Council is expected to consider the proposed plans on Friday, May 11, 2007 following a public hearing at the Community Development Committee on Tuesday, May 1, 2007.
