Senior Housing Redevelopment Proposal Submitted for Lenzen Bus Garage site


The property is home to the former Lenzen Bus Garage and is located at 920 6th Street. The property was purchased by the City in December of 2015. On May 1, 2017, the City selected a proposal from Shingobee Builders to develop senior housing.  Shingobee has recently partnered with Trident Development who will bring the project forward.  A concept plan has been submitted to the City for review.  The concept plan includes a two story building ranging from 60-70 units and is a mix of assisted living units and memory care.

A neighborhood meeting was held on August 30 prior to the Planning Commission review of the Concept Plan.  The City Council reviewed the concept plan at their September 5, 2018 meeting.  City Staff has received an application for both Preliminary Plat and Final Plat which has been recommended to the City Council by the Planning Commission at the November 15 meeting.

The project is anticipated before the City Council at the December 3, 2018 meeting.
