City of Minneapolis is Seeking Interest in Reuse of 1112 and 1200 Plymouth Avenue North
Wednesday, January 4, 2017 (MINNEAPOLIS) – The City of Minneapolis department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED), in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Administration, issued a Request for Interest (RFI) for 1112 and 1200 Plymouth Avenue, the former State of Minnesota WorkForce Center property, in North Minneapolis. The City seeks a feasible project that benefits the public.
“Plymouth Avenue has been one of the most important streets in North Minneapolis. The Minnesota WorkForce Center site on Plymouth Avenue presents a great opportunity for new jobs and new development on this vital corridor,” said Ward 5 Council Member Blong Yang.
The parcel located at 1200 Plymouth Avenue includes a one-story office building most recently used as the Minnesota WorkForce Center and offices for the organization HIRED. The parcel located at 1112 Plymouth Avenue is currently a paved parking lot. The site is close to freeway access and high-frequency bus routes.
The preferred re-use of the property is for job-generating uses. A re-use will provide employment opportunities including from low impact production and processing, technology, creative and office businesses.
Responses are due to the City on or before 12:00 noon on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.
The RFI document and related materials are available on the City’s website here.
