Lupe Development Partners to Break Ground on First Phase of Affordable Housing Project in South Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS — Lupe Development Partners is set to break ground on the first phase of its affordable housing project in the Lyn-Lake area of Minneapolis. Located at 410 W. Lake St. south of Minneapolis, the first of three buildings will feature 111 units, nine of which will be intended for homeless veterans. The range of annual household income to be eligible for housing is $30,000 to $42,000. The development will include a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Construction on an identical Phase II is scheduled to begin in 2020. Plans are also underway for a third building. The project received a $1.2 million grant from the Metropolitan Council’s Livable Communities Demonstration Account and a $2.3 million loan from the Minneapolis City Council’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund. Other funding partners for Phase I include Hennepin County and the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust. The nearby Ballentine VFW Post 246 also served as a development partner. Completion of Phase I is slated for June 2020.
