MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new housing and business development is now open in the very spot that was destroyed by a tornado more than five years ago.

Broadway Flats opened its doors to residents and shoppers Friday in north Minneapolis.

The development features 103 rental units, underground parking, a business center and a community room.

The new housing and retail project is located at Penn Avenue North and West Broadway.

The area was hard hit by a tornado that tore through Minneapolis in 2011. One person was killed that day, and two others were seriously hurt.

Rent starts at $600 for studios and goes up to $1500 for larger two bedroom units.

    Two people were actually killed by that tornado, not one. There was damage done in Fridley, but not as bad as Minneapolis. Nice to see housing is coming back to the area.
