The city is looking to redevelop its former city hall building at 129 Holmes St. S. The aging building was originally constructed as a bank in the 1960s and served at the city hall from 1993 to August 2017, when city staff moved to their new building on Gorman Street.

The approximately .7-acre site is currently zoned B-3. It has all utilities, including natural gas, electricity and fiber.

The parking lot east of the building will be closed to store equipment during abatement and demolition. City staff will re-evaluate the condition of the lot after the project is complete. The city will create a temporary sidewalk in the spring if conditions allow.

Next Steps

City staff will look for alternative options for redeveloping the site. At its Oct. 17 City Council meeting, the council voted to seek development proposals for two city-owned properties in downtown Shakopee: the former city hall site and a 1.2-acre riverfront site, which consists of four parcels at Scott Street North and First Avenue West. The city is currently reviewing redevelopment proposals.
