Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) and the City of Hopkins are working together on a process to find a master developer to redevelop 11-13 acres of the property at 325 Blake Road (former Cold Storage site). MCWD is also leading a restoration effort for 4-6 acres of the site to provide access to Minnehaha Creek, improve its health, and connect the Minnehaha Creek Greenway system. With its location near the creek, the Blake Road Light Rail Station, and the Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail, the site presents a unique and exciting opportunity to create a water-focused, sustainable, transit oriented development that blends seamlessly into the Hopkins community.
We’d like to hear your thoughts and ideas as we begin the process! To find out more information about the project, sign up to receive project updates, and take a survey, view the link here. Survey respondents may also indicate their interest in participating in a virtual community listening session on March 31.
