Eclipse Development Environmental Assessment Worksheet

Availability of the Environmental Assessment Worksheet for the Eclipse Condominium Development

This EAW studies the proposed Eclipse Condominium Development which will redevelop a presently commercially developed parcel fronting on the northwesterly side of Hennepin Avenue between Washington Avenue N and 3rd Street N in downtown Minneapolis for residential use. Two residential towers are proposed, one of 24 stories and one of 32 stories, to be developed in phases of 180 and 323 units. When completed, the development will provide a total of 503 residential units and 16,810 square feet of commercial space served by 908 below and above grade parking spaces. A landscaped plaza will be provided at the corner of Hennepin and Washington Avenues, and a green roof will occupy a large portion of the 5th floor. Above the sixth floor, the two residential towers will be separated laterally by approximately 40 feet. The project will be built in two phases: Phase One is planned to begin construction this year and is anticipated to take 2 years to complete. Construction of Phase Two will follow the completion of Phase One.

Copies of the EAW will be available for review at the downtown Minneapolis Public Library located at 250 Marquette Ave., and in the office of the City Planning Division at 210 City Hall.

Notice will be published in the EQB Monitor on Monday, June 20, 2005. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, 2005. The Zoning and Planning Committee at its regular meeting on August 11, 2005, or at a subsequent meeting, will receive a report and recommendation from City staff, hear comment from all parties and consider the adequacy of this EAW and the need for an Environmental Impact Statement for this proposal. The City Council will act on the recommendation of this Committee at a subsequent meeting.
