MPHA 39th St. and Nicollet Ave. Development Update: – Pat Mulroy, owner of 3924-3932 Nicollet Ave. has pulled the properties temporarily off the market. Heller, a resident of Van Nest Ave. (directly behind the development site) reported that 3936 Nicollet Ave. is in foreclosure and that the property is not expected to be put on the market for another six months. Per Heller’s request this house has been boarded up by the Minneapolis Police Department. Besides the Mulroy’s property MPHA also needed 3936 Nicollet Ave. MPHA is now looking at the funeral home site at 37th St and Nicollet Ave. They are working on a possible partnership with The City of Lake Community Land Trust (CLCLT).
