Developer Puts Brooklyn Park’s “Project Hotdish” On Hold
A mysterious project that has generated a lot of buzz and feedback in Brooklyn Park, now, all of a sudden, is on hold. According to Brooklyn Park officials, the developer requested that the city take no action this year on the so-called “Project Hotdish.”
Indiana-based Scannell Properties has proposed a fulfillment center for a 72-acre site near Highway 169 and 109th Avenue near the Champlin border. The proposed four-story building would be the largest of its kind in the state.
According to city documents, the building would host an unnamed Fortune 500 company. At the Sept. 26 Brooklyn Park Planning Commission meeting, residents wondered whether the tenant is Amazon. The developer has yet to comment on that possibility. Neighbors also raised concerns about the project and its size. The developer indicated a willingness to shift around the building to make it more aesthetically pleasing to neighbors.
The Brooklyn Park City Council was supposed to vote on the project Nov. 26. That agenda item has been removed until further notice.
