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 250′ (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).
