Linden Corner project before Planning Commission tonight

The controversial Linden Corner project planned for 43rd & Upton goes before the Minneapolis Planning Commission tonight.

Mark Dwyer has proposed building a five-story mixed use development with 40 condos and 11,227 square feet of commercial space — one space would be designed for a restaurant, another for an office tenant and the remaining space for retailers.

The proposal has been the subject of intense debate in the neighborhood for months. Opponents say it doesn’t fit the character of Linden Hills. The commission’s meeting starts at 4:30 p.m. Here’s a link to the agenda and staff report on the Linden Corner project.
