Grandview RFI

The City of Edina accepted Letters for Interest of Development Partner in July and early August to prepare development scenarios for mixed-use property near Hwy 100 and Vernon Avenue.

Ten development teams submitted statements of interest to potentially partner with the City to redevelop the former Public Works site at 5146 Eden Ave.

This response followed extensive outreach to the urban planning and real estate development communities. The formal Request for Interest (RFI) was sent to more than 60 local planning and development professionals. Print and internet ads were placed in both local and national trade journals.
