2225 East Lake Street RFP
Pre-Development Meeting for 2225 East Lake Street RFP was held Thursday, September 16th at 1 p.m. Meeting was held on-site in the GED Test Center on 1st floor of the subject property.
The City of Minneapolis Department of Community Planning and Economic Development, under contract with the Minneapolis Public Schools, is seeking development proposals for a 6.48-acre site located at 2225 E. Lake Street in south Minneapolis. The site is bounded by 22nd Avenue on the west, 31st Street on the south, Lake Street to the North, Hiawatha Avenue to the East and is approximately 282,160 square feet (6.48 acres) of land area.
The site is also located immediately adjacent to the Lake Street Station on the Hiawatha Light Rail Transit line, in addition to multiple bus lines with stops adjacent to or near the site. These features, combined with the relatively large size of the site and its location in the urban core, make 2225 E Lake Street an excellent fit for high-quality, high-density transit-oriented development. These opportunities enhance the marketability of the site.
The Minneapolis Public School District purchased the site in 1998 for use as a magnet school. It was originally a technical school for Brown Institute. The building is currently providing Adult Basic Education (ABE) and other programming for the Minneapolis schools but this location is considered temporary and will not impact the overall disposition of the property.
A response to this RFP will require significant time and a strong financial commitment from the responder.
