There’s nothing hotter than an undeveloped parcel. Which Twin Cities undeveloped parcels are the hottest? Find out with our latest rankings.
#6 The site: Superior Plating
The location: the corner of 1st Avenue and University Avenue NE, Minneapolis
This parcel is a Victoria’s Secret model, so it’s expected that it would end up on this list. Just remember, it is a fantasy. No parcel looks like this in real life.
#5 The site: Nicollet Hotel
The location: across South 3rd Street from the Central Library, downtown Minneapolis
Is it because it’s single again? The Nicollet Hotel is a little high maintenance.
#4 The site: Lake Street, just north of Lake Calhoun
The location: 2622 Lake Street W., Uptown Minneapolis
We get that the Lake Street parcel is considered sexy and likes to take hot photos of itself, but it left Ryan Reynolds heartbroken.
#3 The site: Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP)
The location: east of I-35, north of County Hwy. 96, Arden Hills
Finally a contender we can get behind! Not only is TCAAP gorgeous, but it never takes itself too seriously.
#2 The site: Ford Plant
The location: Ford Parkway and South Mississippi River Boulevard, Highland Park, St Paul
We suppose The Ford Plant could be considered hot, but only if you find that conventionally post-industrial type appealing.
#1 The site: Central Station
The location: corner of 5th and Minnesota Streets, downtown St. Paul
Do you think it was Central Station’s latest construction that won people over? It certainly doesn’t hurt that this parcel has famous friends like Jay-Z and Beyonce.
MinnPost would have gotten way more clicks on this had they used the same headline.
Two of those are way past 30. . . 30 acres, that is.
