The proposed Lyndale Green Redevelopment is a mixed-use project that currently consists of a vacant, boarded church (the Salem English Lutheran Church, located at 28 th St West and Lyndale Ave), a 1960s addition to the church, and a parking lot. The original church, built in 1904, will be renovated and preserved and the later additions to the church will be demolished. Adjacent to the church, a new four-story "L"-shaped building with a primary fa├žade along Lyndale Avenue will be constructed. The new four-story building will consist of approximately 9,000 square feet of commercial space on the first floor and three floors of rental housing space for a total of 65 units. Once constructed, the project will have a total of 105 parking spaces, 57 of which will be underground.

The Lyndale Green Redevelopment Plan has been prepared in coordination with the Lyn-Lake Small Area planning process, which is currently underway. The redevelopment at 28 th and Lyndale will focus on achieving the goals, recommendations, and tasks as they will be set forth in the small area plan. The redevelopment plan is also being prepared as a requirement of Hennepin County, which has awarded a transit oriented development (TOD) grant to the project.
