Residential Project Environmental Assessment Worksheet

MWF Properties LLC (MWF) prepared an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) for five residential developments east of the I-35W/Burnsville Parkway interchange in Burnsville’s Transit-Oriented Development District. 

Concorde Flats and Villas I is under construction and Villas II construction would begin in fall 2023. MWF included two potential future project phases in the EAW, Parkway and Diamondhead. The projects would provide approximately 500 units of attached residential housing to the area.

State Requirement:

By State Statute, an EAW is required for residential development if the total number of units that may ultimately be developed on contiguous land exceeds 375 units. At the time the first two buildings were approved for construction, it was not known that the Village at Pleasant Avenue Phase II site (VAPA II) would be available for redevelopment as it contained condo-office buildings. The developer has reached an agreement with the owners of the town office site, and has prepared the mandatory EAW for the new proposed units. When counting the new proposed 110 units, the statute requires that this number be added to the number of units that have been developed in the last three years – which brings the total number of units above the 375 unit threshold. The EAW will review the proposed VAPA II site as well as two potential sites close in proximity to the core MWF development.
