How a north Minneapolis nonprofit is building strong neighborhoods
The Minneapolis City Council recently approved a plan to develop 48 acres of riverfront property in north Minneapolis. The site is a defunct barge terminal called the Upper Harbor Terminal.
The approved plan for the property calls for building over 500 apartments and condos; retail and business space including a 10-thousand person amphitheater; and restoring nearly 20 acres for park land. That’s great, but residents say the development is already causing a hike in rents in north Minneapolis — one of the most racially diverse and economically challenged areas in the Twin Cities.
Adair Mosley, a north Minneapolis resident and CEO of Pillsbury United Communities (an organization that has many, many arms), joined Minnesota Now with Cathy Wurzer to talk about a brand new initiative at the organization to shape development.
