Developer Pulls Plug on Brooklyn Park’s “Project Hotdish”
Indianapolis-based Scannell Properties withdrew its application for a 2.6 million-square-foot fulfillment center called “Project Hotdish,” Brooklyn Park city officials announced Friday. The project was planned for the North Park Business Center in the northwest part of the city as this video shows below.
The company gave no reason for withdrawing its application, according to a press release put out by the city. Scannell Properties previously submitted an application for a development plan, site plan and plat for the project. The company had never identified a tenant. Neighbors spoke out against the project believing the tenant was Amazon.
In November, the Brooklyn Park City Council planned to vote on the project. However, days before the meeting the Project Hotdish vote was put on hold.
Scannell Properties did tell the city it will keep in contact about possible future development of the North Park Business Center. The company began developing the business center in 2015. The city says it “looks forward to working with the company on future development opportunities.”
