Developer redesigns plans for Aldi, apartments at 26th & Lyndale

Master Properties has redesigned the Rex 26 apartment and grocery project proposed at the southeast corner of 26th & Lyndale.

At an Aug. 10 Lowry Hill East Neighborhood committee meeting, Master’s Managing Partner Don Gerberding said he’s reduced the height by one story and reduced the unit count from 100 to 76. The previous height considered by the city Planning Commission was six stories or 67.5 feet.

“There was too much building at that intersection,” Gerberding said.

Aldi is confirmed as the first-floor grocer, he said, and the location would be Aldi’s first for its new national prototype.

Gerberding said redesign details are still being finalized. He anticipated filing a land use application with the city in late August.
