Grandview District

This redevelopment TIF district was established to create a viable funding source for the many public improvements anticipated to improve access to and through the overall Grandview commercial district. Needs identified in the 2012 Grandview Development Framework include: improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists, improvements to: Eden Avenue, Arcadia, Avenue, intersections at Eden/Arcadia and Eden/Vernon, new east-west connection behind Jerry’s Office Tower, and new shared public parking.

This TIF District includes 15 properties that cover 11 acres of the 80 acre commercial area. Specific uses of TIF monies will be considered on a case-by-case basis when development proposals are prepared for the vacant and underutilized parcels.

Pentagon Park District

This redevelopment TIF district was established in 2014 to revive the declining commercial properties formerly known as Pentagon Park (PDF). The TIF district includes 40 acres of privately owned land that is subdivided by West 77th Street and is adjacent to Fred Richards Park. Pentagon Village with new retail and commercial buildings, parking and public plaza space is the first piece of redevelopment.

Southdale 2 District

This economic development TIF district was established in 2012 using one-time legislation created by Governor Dayton to promote job creation and investment throughout Minnesota. This legislation was used in Edina to counteract the decline of Southdale Center mall, which suffered from high vacancy, increased perception of crime and declining property values after a series of ownership changes and deferred maintenance. The renewal of this historic shopping destination spurred more than $100 million in new investments on property surrounding the mall.

West 76th District

This housing TIF district was established in 2018 to support development of new affordably priced housing in the space previously home to FlyteTyme Studios and the Minneapolis Media Institute. Notable artwork from the site was removed and preserved. The Sound on 76th will provide 80 units of affordable housing and underground resident parking.

Closed TIF Districts

Centennial Lakes

The Centennial Lakes TIF District was established to encourage private-sector redevelopment of a former gravel pit. Edina’s bonding authority was used to hold the large (100-plus-acre) parcel of land so that it could be developed in phases when market conditions were ready for new office space, new retail buildings, new medical office and new multi-family housing. This award-winning project also gave residents, workers and visitors Edina's signature park, Centennial Lakes Park, 25 acres filled with popular trails, putting courses, summer lawn games, paddle boats and the Twin Cities' most picturesque outdoor ice skating in winter.

Grandview 1

This district was established to attract new commercial and residential investment to underutilized industrial parcels in this long established commercial node. The City and Housing & Redevelopment Authority assembled land that was then redeveloped and transformed into a new Class A office building, condominiums, public park, Hennepin County library branch and Edina Senior Center. Several wayfinding improvements also were constructed in the area.

Closed Early

These districts were created to pursue investment and improvements in these areas but were shut down early due to lack of private investment.
