City eyes redevelopment project for current City Hall building

Post Date:06/23/2017 9:19 a.m.
As the city prepares to move into its new home in late July, city staff have been reaching out to local developers to identify the best redevelopment strategy for the existing city hall building.

At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the council agreed to partner with CPM Cos. to potentially redevelop the City Hall property into a mixed-use development that would include retail and approximately 70-units of market-rate housing.

CPM, the eighth-largest developer in the Twin Cities, is no stranger to redevelopment, recently completing the Chroma apartments building on East 26th Street in south Minneapolis.

In conjunction with the project, the city and CPM are also looking to develop two recently acquired parcels on the 300 block of First Avenue West. Combining these parcels with another city-owned property along the Minnesota River, the developers are considering constructing an 110-room, boutique-style hotel with a full-service restaurant. The hotel would provide unique views of the Minnesota River and could help build downtown Shakopee’s reputation as a wedding destination.

The city plans to bring final designs and development agreement to the council later this year. The goal would be to demolish City Hall by the end of 2017.

More information about the project will be posted on the city website as it becomes available
