Ecumen is among a trio of developers bringing senior housing to downtown Minneapolis in the Mill City district along the riverfront. One of the acclaimed features next to Ecumen’s Abiitan apartment community is a “woonerf” — a Dutch-inspired concept for a shared pedestrian, bike and car street.
The Star Tribune’s Steve Brandt reports that the woonerf is now in place and gives background on its development. He writes that the woonerf is likely to draw crowds once the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board links it to nearby W. River Parkway riverfront trails for foot and bike traffic.
Abiitan is scheduled to open in late December 2016. For more information go to www.abiitan.org or call 877-749-5933.
