Update: General Mils Site

The project site occupies an entire city block and is located in the Marcy Holmes Neighborhood within the bounds of the East Hennepin Activity Center. The block is bounded to the north by University Avenue SE, an adopted Community Corridor in the Minneapolis Comprehensive Plan. Existing zoning on the site is currently the I1 Light Industrial District and the Industrial Living Overlay District. The site today is occupied by a surface parking lot. The site is also located within the St. Anthony Falls Historic District which was designated as a local and national historic district in 1971.
