MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — People are already talking about the economic impact of the new Vikings stadium, as a $400 million development is in the works to tie the east end of downtown in with the new stadium.
The project will include two office towers big enough for 6,000 workers. There’s also a parking ramp, retail space and hundreds of residential units.
The project would also connect the skyway to downtown and includes a new nine-acre public park.
There are still things to figure out before the Minneapolis City Council gives the final thumbs up, as the developer wants the city to pitch in $65 million for its stake in the project.
