With a retail renaissance underway along France Avenue in Edina, it’s no surprise that several new buildings have been built within minutes of Southdale Center. The latest is 71France, a multi-building project which is part of a broader effort that includes redevelopment of the nearby Lunds & Byerly’s store. 71France is within walking distance of a broad variety of specialty stores including Room & Board, the Container Store and Macy’s Furniture Gallery. Better yet, the Galleria and Southdale are within sight. Could there be a better location for those with a little cash burning a hole in their pocket? 7161 France Av. S., Edina, 952-835-5000, 71france.com
