• Hollywood Theater Redevelopment Plan
Sharrin Miller-Bassi from the City of Minneapolis Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) will present the Hollywood Theater Redevelopment Plan.
The City of Minneapolis is proposing to establish a redevelopment project area to include the vacant Hollywood Theater building at 2815 Johnson Street NE and two additional parcels at 2800 and 2819 Johnson Street NE. A draft redevelopment plan will be available at the meeting. If approved by the City Council, the plan will give the City the ability to carry out certain redevelopment activities related to the subject properties.
Note: The purchase of the home by Hillcrest Development at 2819 Johnson Street was done in order to place fire exits on the side of the Theater. Without these new exits, current fire code will not allow the Theater to be renovated and opened as it sits today. This process of a redevelopment plan is "required" in part so that the City may purchase 2819 Johnson Street from Hillcrest and incorporate this parcel into any possible future Hollywood Theater development. There are currently no development plans on the table.
