Background:

This site was designated as a redevelopment area in 2004 as part of the larger Cedar Avenue Corridor airport noise redevelopment project area. These two city blocks are guided for high-density housing to provide a transition between the retail development and airport to the east, and the neighborhood to the west. In 2014, the City removed 14 houses along 17th Avenue for the construction of Richfield Parkway. Between 2014 and 2017 the HRA purchased four homes along the east side of 16th Avenue. The 11 remaining houses on the east side of 16th Avenue will need to be acquired by the developer and removed to allow for redevelopment. On March 19, 2018, the HRA approved a preliminary development agreement with NHH Companies to develop 218 market rate apartments and approximately 72 for-sale townhomes on the site.
