Building Boom on Minneapolis — St. Louis Park Border
Exactly how big is the construction crane at the new development — a 49 unit apartment building — now going up just southeast of France Ave. and Lake Street?
At 250â€² (my estimate), the crane is so big that it straddles the border between Minneapolis and St. Louis Park (which just so happens to be France Ave.).
When I snapped the photo above recently, the vertical part of the crane (including the base) was in Minneapolis, with the arm mostly in St. Louis Park.
Or, should I say, “over” St. Louis Park? 🙂
With the new light rail line to Eden Prairie (“Southwest LRT”) under construction just to the south, the area is experiencing the most development in decades (note: the Edina Realty-City Lakes office is located almost across the street).
