Blaine Development Continues

During a pandemic, it would be easy to assume that development activity grinds to an abrupt halt. That scenario is not what the city is currently experiencing as you can see in the latest Blaine Planning Commission and Blaine City Council meeting agendas.

While overall development activity may be down from last year’s pace, the May and June planning commission agendas included commercial and residential projects that will help keep the development economy going in the right direction. The following commercial projects have been proposed for planning commission and city council review within the last two months:

  • Kwik Trip (Lexington Meadows at 109th Avenue/Austin Street)
  • McHale Veterinary Clinic (12535 Ulysses Street NE)
  • Pet Suites (9983 Ulysses Street NE)
  • Lexington Market Retail Shops/Starbucks (Lexington Meadows at 108th Avenue/Lexington Avenue)

The following residential projects have been proposed for planning commission and city council review within the last two months:

  • North Meadows (259 total lots with a mix of villas, twin homes and townhomes, Austin Street NE and 109th Avenue NE)
  • Alexander Woods (45 villa lots and 39 single family lots, 113th Avenue and Polk Street NE)
  • Boulder Estates 2nd Addition (9 single family lots, 9850 Hamline Avenue)
  • Harpers Haven (14 single family lots, 12750 Harpers Street NE)

In addition, Lennar Homes, the developer of the single family neighborhood of Lexington Cove (97 single family lots) at Lexington Avenue and 128th Lane NE, has begun grading and development activity.

Building permits for following commercial and industrial projects have been recently issued, providing more evidence that business owners are still willing to invest in the City of Blaine:

  • Midwest Diesel (industrial, 3051 82nd Lane NE)
  • Kingdom Baking (commercial bakery, 10130 Sunset Avenue NE)
  • Nafta Solutions, Inc. (industrial, 10122 Naples Street NE)
  • Murphy Bros. (industrial, 1613 93rd Lane NE)
  • Renovation Church (church, commercial, 12390 Fraizer Street NE)
  • Spire Credit Union (commercial, 10 Northtown Drive NE)
  • National Sports Center—dome project (1700 105th Avenue NE)
  • Domino’s Pizza (10495 University Avenue NE)
