After several years of a community-led planning and discussion, the City Council unanimously adopted a long-term vision for the Grandview District as documented in the 2012 Development Framework. After additional discussion and planning in 2013-2014, it is now time to begin implementing this vision.

The 3.3-acre site, 5146 Eden Ave., was formerly used by Edina's Public Works Department and has been vacant since 2010 when Public Works moved to a new location. The City is working in partnership with Frauenshuh Commercial Real Estate Group to prepare possible mixed-use scenarios to reuse the vacant site.

Over the years, there have been many thoughtful ideas regarding the site. This is the time to renew a serious conversation about what the community truly needs on the site and what the taxpayers are willing to support. Please share your thoughts and ideas!
