Process

The redevelopment process is expected to be a long-term undertaking that might take a decade or more to actually implement (depending upon the availability of funding and real estate market realities). The phasing for the implementation will be considered during the planning process and may be different from the originally anticipated Phase 1 and 2 strategy. The currently anticipated timeline is:

The Upper Harbor Terminal (UHT) site includes seven parcels. Parcels 1 through 5 run along the Mississippi River, with Parcel 1 at the northern end and Parcel 5 at the southern end, between about 40th Ave. N. on the northern end and 33rd Ave. N. on the southern end. The western border of these five parcels is the CP Rail line that is about a block inland from the River, and the eastern border is the Mississippi River. The other two parcels are west of the CP Rail line. Parcel 6 is bounded by Dowling Ave. N. and about 37th Ave. N., with Second St./Washington Ave. N. on the west and the rail line on the east. Parcel 7 is a relatively thin triangle of land that extends south of Dowling to about 36th Ave. N., between I-94 and Washington Ave. N. The site currently is accessed by Dowling Ave. N. and 33rd Ave. N. Dowling is located at what otherwise would be 38th Ave. N. and extends west from the River, across I-94 and into North Minneapolis. 33rd Ave. N. extends west from the UHT site to Washington Ave. N., but not does not cross I-94. The enhancement of Dowling as a key access point from the adjacent community into the site has been identified as an early redevelopment priority, as has the development of some sort of river-related destination where Dowling meets the River. Phase 1 is the northern half of the UHT site and includes Parcels 1, 2, 6 and 7. Phase 2 is the half of the site south of 36th Ave. N. and includes Parcels 3, 4 and 5.Upper Harbor Terminal - Above the Falls Phases Map
