Where is density growing in Minneapolis?

Posted by: Eric Roper Updated: July 29, 2013 - 12:37 PM

We wrote this weekend about a change to the city's zoning code that will allow for denser housing projects, with smaller living spaces, outside of downtown.

The city released a list of all major housing projects that have been approved in the last four years to illustrate where dense housing is being built around the city.

About 24 percent of these projects received exemptions from the "minimum lot area per dwelling unit" requirements, which the city is mulling eliminating in many zones. MLA requirements limit the number of units in a building by defining how many can fit on a given plot of land.

Below is a map of those major housing projects, along with their corresponding density levels.
