Minneapolis’ long quest to redevelop the Lake Street Kmart site blocking Nicollet Avenue took an unexpected turn Tuesday after new revelations that a Walgreens developer had outbid the city for a key parcel of land there.  For more information, click this link to the article in the Star Tribune: http://www.startribune.com/local/west/288488211.html

City Council Member Elizabeth Glidden will be attending tonight’s KFNA Board meeting to discuss how this impacts the City’s efforts to reopen Nicollet Avenue at Lake Street and attract more development to create a more inviting urban landscape.  The meeting begins at 7pm and takes place at MLK Park, 4055 Nicollet Ave S.
