Approximately 1.2 acre site with a 15,000 square foot commercial structure is available via a Request for Interest.

The Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HCHRA), in partnership with Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis, has identified a unique redevelopment opportunity in conjunction with the construction of a new library facility (the “new Webber Park Library”) on the east side of Humboldt Avenue North between 44th Avenue and Victory Memorial Parkway.

Hennepin County has acquired approximately 2.25 acres bordered by 44th Avenue North on the south, Humboldt Avenue on the west, 45th Avenue North on the north, and Hamilton Manor on the east.  It is projected that approximately 1.2 acres of surplus property on the south side of site will be available for repositioning or redevelopment upon completion of the new library.  Developable property will be subject to a final survey.
