Boulevard project to break ground by winter

Lisa Kugler, of Lyndale West Partners, said groundbreaking for the Boulevard housing, retail and office development at 5320 Lyndale Ave. S. would take place before winter. Construction should be completed a year later, she said.

The project will include 19 apartments, with its remaining 7,000 square feet devoted to office space and commercial uses. The site plan has been modified so that a two-way driveway will be installed on the north side of the Lynnhurst property instead of a pair of one-way drives for incoming and outgoing traffic.

The issue of whether Wells Fargo Bank will keep its ATM machine at the site has not been resolved, Kugler said. Ward 13 Councilmember Barret Lane’s office said the city has approved the final plans for the project submitted by Lyndale West Partners.
