The mixed-use development at 43rd & Upton has been approved and construction is underway on the 4-story building, with 29 apartment units and 6,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor. Commercial space will be leased by an orthodontist office and high-end pet product and grooming business.
Environmental remediation has occurred on the site. In January, 2016, the project was selected by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development to receive grant funding for pollution cleanup. The project will receive $230,755 for environmental remediation work on the lot which once was home to a gas station.
