More condos coming to Uptown

The new Uptown-based real estate company Financial Freedom Realty, 1406 W. Lake St., is planning to build 27 to 30 condominiums at 2936 Emerson Ave. S., between Lake Street and Lagoon Avenue.

FFR owner Clark Gassen recently purchased the building from the Ackerberg Group, a large Uptown real estate business that previously occupied the site along with a Fairview heath clinic. The Ackerberg group is now at 3033 Excelsior Blvd.

Gassen said he's planning to have retail space on the first floor and the condos above. Sales for the new condominium units will begin in February. New condo units in the building will sell for between $170,000 and $400,000, Gassen said.
