Carver Place | Carver County Community Development Agency - 1591 Hartwell Drive

The Carver County Community Development Agency (CDA) has made an application to the City for Final Plat for a project called Carver Place.  Carver Place is proposed to be a 60-unit apartment building ranging from 1-bedroom units to 3-bedroom units.  Infrastructure for the project includes 70 underground parking spaces, 25 surface level spaces via a new parking lot, and landscaping.

Previous versions of the project have shown one apartment building with 103 total units.  Of the 103 units, 60 units were slated as general occupancy with the remaining 43 being for seniors.  Since concept plan, the CDA's plans have adjusted due to availability of funding.  The current project in for application is for the 60 general occupancy units.  The senior units are still anticipated but are not contemplated at this time.  The project is now proposed to be two separate buildings, as opposed to one, which was shown in the concept plan.  

The Planning Commission reviewed the Final Plat application at their February 15 meeting and the City Council will be reviewing the application in March. 

Questions and comments related to the project can be sent to Erin Smith at
