This will be a six-story, 405-unit apartment building at 8100 31st Avenue South, with an attached 15,000-square-foot grocery space and other site improvements.

Oxendales Market, a locally owned grocery store with three locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul, will occupy the grocery space on the main floor of Carbon 31. The grocery store is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2023.
