This EAW studies the proposed Kraus-Anderson Block redevelopment located on the property at 810 Portland Avenue in Minneapolis. The total project area encompasses a two and one-half acre site along Portland Avenue in Downtown Minneapolis, between South 8th and 9th Streets. The project is anticipated to be developed in one phase and would provide at completion up to 306 dwelling units, a 148-unit hotel and associated restaurant/bar, 107,000 square feet of office, a 12,000 square-foot brewery, a 13,000 square-foot event center, and up to 530 off-street parking spaces.
Copies of the EAW will be available for review at the downtown Minneapolis Central Library located at 300 Nicollet Mall, and in the office of the City’s CPED, Land Use, Design and Preservation Section at 250 S. 4th Street, Room 300 Public Service Center. Notice will be published in the EQB Monitor on Monday, December 7th, 2015. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6th, 2016.
