BP Gas Station at Lake & Excelsior to Become Hotel-and-Condo
“Elevage Development Group’s revised plan for a hotel-and-condo building at Lake & Excelsior calls for a taller, slimmer structure and wider sidewalks . . . in early July, Hennepin County will start tearing down the BP gas station standing on the triangular site.”
–“Lake Street Hotel is Taller, Slimmer in Revised Plan”; Southwest Journal (April 18 – May 1, 2019).
I’m sure the views of Lake Calhoun will be amazing from the new hotel/condo slated to replace the Calhoun Beach BP at 3012 Excelsior Blvd in Minneapolis.
And the location just off the northwest corner of the lake couldn’t be any better.
But, to point out the obvious, there IS a fire station located immediately next door.
That would be Minneapolis Fire Department Station 22, which sits directly west of the new development.
Suffice to say: if you mind city noise, this might not be the spot for you . . .
P.S.: On a purely personal note, I’ll miss getting my car washed at the BP gas station (just $28 for a pack of five, half-price on Tuesdays).
