The developer of a residential project now under construction in Edina’s Pentagon Park is proposing another development next door.
Led by Minneapolis-based Solhem Companies, the proposed 276-unit multifamily apartment building is intended to be the second phase of the development project approved by the Edina City Council last year. That project, which is located immediately south of Fred Richards Park, replaced two existing office buildings at that site.
Now, the proposed seven-story residential building to the east of the development under construction, located at 4620 77th St. W., would replace an existing three-story office building and surface parking lot at that site. One of the key features of the newly proposed project is Solhem’s intent to create a new entrance to Fred Richards Park from the highly trafficked 77th Street in the Greater Southdale area of Edina.
