Downtown grocery, apt. complex shaping up
As the Rochester street work around it wraps up, it looks like construction is going full tilt on the Metropolitan Market Place complex at First Avenue and Sixth Street Southwest.
It will have 62 apartments when all of the dust settles.
A little farther south on First Avenue, the University of Minnesota Rochester recently bought a two-story office complex in preparation for its long-term plan of building a 10.5 acre campus in that area.
I have more on that in an article in today's paper.
If I understand the future plans correctly, the Metro Market complex will be basically across the First Ave./Sixth St. intersection from the entrance to this future university campus. Not a bad place to be, I'd guess.
