Office, Retail, Mixed-Use, Industrial/Flex
2nd & Van White
Bringing jobs to North Minneapolis by the forthcoming light rail stop.
The parcels in the southwest quadrant of 2nd Avenue and Van White Memorial Boulevard provide potential for over 100,000 SF of office, retail and production spaces, creating new jobs and community-serving retail amenities. Wellington has worked with Collage Architects and the City of Minneapolis on concepts for a two- or three-phase project. Phase 1 includes a ~90,000 SF office building to leverage employment demand driven by the forthcoming LRT station nearby. Subsequent phases call for smaller buildings fronting 2nd & Van White avenues and will focus on light production or other creative retail uses.
The City and Wellington have secured initial brownfield remediation grants for Phase 1 from the County and Metropolitan Council, but significant public investment is needed to relocate and repair sewer lines running through and around the site.
