A proposed development project in Edina is drawing the ire of hundreds of neighbors.
Developer Ted Carlson is considering tearing down Edina Cleaners and building a five-story apartment building near 44th Street and France Avenue.
Many residents in the area think that’s too high a building, and they’ve sent a petition with more than 300 hundred signatures to the city of Edina.
Ted Carlson tells KSTP he’s willing to work with the community on the size of the project.
Neighbors and Carlson plan to have another meeting on the project later this month. The city of Edina has a group of residents developing a Small Area Plan for the 44th and France neighborhood.
