Redevelopment of two properties along Market Street (formerly called 49 1/2 Street) is proceeding on schedule in Edina's 50th & France Commercial District.
In December 2016, the Edina Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) selected a team led by Buhl Investors and Saturday Properties to serve as the development partner. This team was selected after interviewing three teams that had expressed interest in working with the Edina HRA to improve public parking and add vitality and street life to this sleepy portion of 50th and France.
Construction began January 2018 and will be completed in two phases. The first phase, an expansion of the North Parking Ramp, is complete! This ramp has nearly 550 public parking stalls available for customers and employees.
The second phase is under construction and on schedule for completion in Fall 2019. This phase consists of 100 new apartments (called Nolan Mains) and new street level retail arranged around a series of pedestrian walkways and outdoor public plazas to unify the new construction and the existing businesses. The new Center Parking Ramp will be located in the lower level of Nolan Mains and will provide an additional 120-plus public parking stalls for customers and clients.
