The Gateway

Hennepin County and CP rail sold this property contingent on issues that the developer requested. CPNA is following the proceedings. Currently the property is slated to become a bus barn.  Stayed tuned for more information.


for saleOn Friday February 9th Hennepin County Regional Rail Authority (HCRRA) and Canadian Pacific Rail (CP) put out in a Request for Proposals (RFP) the site that is bound by 37th AV to the North, University AV to the West, 5th ST NE to the East and a line with a spur to the South. The RFP gives a description of the property, a timeline and a map of the site as well as where to send proposals and when they are due.

The site is zoned I-1 and the zoning code describing allowed industrial uses can be found in the City of Minneapolis Municipal Code here. As the process continues please check back to this website or on our Nextdoor page for updates. At this time it is unlikely we will be able to offer plots at the Gateway Garden for the 2018 planting season.
