Place | A New Eco-Village And Creative Center

St. Louis Park, Minnesota

A New Eco-Village And Creative Center

PLACE is collaborating with the City of St. Louis Park to create a mixed-use, mixed-income, transit-oriented community demonstrating profound environmental design. Located on Minnesota’s future southwest light rail line and the largest dedicated regional bike trail in the country, this community will offer 299 healthy apartments, affordable and market rate, along with space for local businesses, a new hotel, and live/work space designed for creatives. It will be one of the most intensely transit-oriented communities in the nation, offering multiple transportation alternatives to the car. The project will provide access to nature in an urban setting, via green rooftop decks and a one-acre urban forest that will feature public art. PLACE’s patent-pending E-Generation process is a neighborhood-scale food and energy system that unites multiple sustainable energy sources, including the creation of renewable energy from organics, and the growth of organic produce in onsite greenhouses. 

Every PLACE project relies on a deep and robust community process, and St. Louis Park is no different -- we will be leading dozens of public meetings throughout the project's development, and we encourage you to sign up to receive updates so that you can join us.
