Howe & Northrop school site redevelopment plans
~ The SENA office has received the following information from Chuck Ellis at Applewood Pointe Cooperatives: ~ Howe and Northrop School Site Redevelopment – Affordable Senior HousingUnited Properties has been selected by the Minneapolis School District to purchase and redevelop the Howe School building located on 38th Street East between 43rd and 44th Avenues South and the Northrop School site located at 1611 46th Street East. The goal is to redevelop these sites to accommodate the needs of seniors in the area. United Properties
develops a product called Applewood Pointe Senior Cooperative. This alternative represents a reasonably affordable alternative for seniors 55 and better who are looking to stay in the
neighborhood but would prefer a maintenance free senior oriented option.
The first Applewood Pointe cooperative was developed in 2004. Each of the present five Applewood Pointe Cooperatives is 100% sold out and has waiting lists. United Properties is hopeful the redevelopment of the Howe and Northrop school sites will draw a significant level of interest from area seniors given so few options are available.
Introductory Informational Meetings were held in January to present additional details on the building designs, maintenance free cooperative lifestyle, floor plans and pricing.
These meetings will help area seniors become aware of the opportunity, and help determine the level of interest and support for these senior cooperative communities. The first meeting
was held Monday, January 11, at 1:00 p.m. at the Riverview Theater on 42nd Avenue South. This meeting focused primarily on the Howe school site. A second Informational Meeting
took place Thursday, January 14, at 9:00 a.m. at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 1720 East Minnehaha Parkway. This meeting focused primarily on the Northrop school site.
Information on both sites was available at each of the meetings. Attendees were asked to please RSVP to 952-884-6400 as seating was limited for these meetings. Refreshments were served.
Additional information about the Howe and Northrop developments can be found at ApplewoodPoint in the Community section under “Future Plans”.
