The planned redevelopment of the Glendale public housing complex in southeast Minneapolis could range from renovating existing units to replacing them under options presented by a local developer Wednesday.
F. Clayton Tyler, chair of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, announced that the agency’s board will conduct a public hearing in March in Glendale, where feisty opposition has persisted.
Developer George Sherman presented four options. The cheapest would be to renovate all 184 units in the 28 row houses. The most involved would tear down the 64-year-old complex and rebuild 423 units in a mix of apartment buildings, row houses and a senior building. The number of public housing units would be retained.
