What’s happening in the Gateway District?

To advance the City Council’s strategic priorities of focused renewal, community image, and equity and inclusion, the City is engaging in many renewal efforts in older neighborhoods. These projects, mostly located east of I-35W, are in an area known as the Gateway District. 

Throughout the year, the Briefing will feature key projects and activities in the area and let you know how you can get more information or get involved. 

New development

Bank of America plans to build a new one-story, 4,020-square-foot bank on the site of the former Baker’s Square at 611 West 98th Street. The project was approved by the City Council in June.    

Lyndale Avenue retrofit

Using public input gathered at a series of engagement activities in 2019, Stantec, the project consultant partnering with the City, is developing urban design and mobility plans for the Lyndale Avenue corridor. The design team is expected to present its draft proposal to the City Council later this summer.
