The Edina Housing Foundation selected Lupe Development Partners and Ecumen to bring 118 units of affordable senior housing to a site near Southdale Mall in Edina at 4040 W. 70th Street.
The proposed development, Forty Forty Flats, would combine affordable senior rental housing with high-end amenities, community-based programming, public art and sustainable design – ideal for individuals who want to remain in Edina after retirement. With rents ranging from $650 to $1,600, the building will be affordable to seniors with household incomes between $22,000 and $58,000 per year.
The community would include one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include 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.
