Background

The City has approved a PUD and Zoning Map Amendment application to request rezoning of a 2.63 acre parcel of land that is currently owned by Lupe Development from C-1, General Commercial to R-3, High Density Residential in order to facilitate a senior multi-family housing development.

Lupe Development Partners, LLC, a twin cities developer, is proposing to build a 106-unit multi-family senior apartment project on land south end of Little Canada along County Road B East, along the western edge of the Soo Line Railroad. The project will feature a 4-story wood framed structure over one level of underground parking.

The unit mix will be targeted towards seniors 55+ and feature a majority of studio to two-bedroom layouts. Units will have energy star appliances and open floor plans. The site is currently fairly wooded with mature trees. The buildings will sit more than 600 feet from the south property line and is proposed to be well screened.
