Edina Senior Affordable Housing Project Celebrates Construction Start

Tuesday, July 26th, 2022

Ecumen and Lupe Development Partners’ 4040 West 70th Street Apartments will be a compelling new housing option for Edina, Minnesota residents.

With continued growth in the city’s aging population, this development supports the neighborhood’s need for more housing options at an affordable price point. The development will include senior affordable rental housing and an amenity space for community-based programming and public art.

With one- and two-bedroom units, the community will also house various amenities including a fitness center, a community room with kitchen, a business center, below grade parking, a package and mail center, outdoor garden beds and a green roof, and walking path connections to the city’s trail system. The 118-unit project is located near Edina’s Southdale Center, public transit lines, and other amenities, making it a prime location for future residents.

It is exciting to see this project come to life! Follow along for future updates.
