Nicollet reopening at Kmart site remains a top city priority

City staff report that the project to reopen Nicollet at Lake Street is still underway.


Staff continue working to secure control of key pieces of the intersection, including the Kmart lease and its land, as well as the SuperValu lease and its land — all owned by separate entities.


David Frank, the city’s transit development director, said the newly elected City Council has not changed the project’s trajectory.


“It is a top priority,” he said.
