Metropolitan Council of Minnesota Awards Grant to Presbyterian Homes

Presbyterian Homes & Services’ future senior living development in Eden Prairie, has received a grant for $848,300 from Livable Communities of the Metropolitan Council of Minnesota. The grant is for design and engineering, street realignment and storm water management improvements. The 21-acre mixed-use residential, commercial and retail development includes 372 units that will offer a full range of living options, including senior independent living, assisted living and memory care apartments and a new skilled care center. A limited number of apartments will be affordable to income-qualified older adults. Senior Housing Partners, Presbyterian Homes & Services development arm, will develop the project that will also feature shopping, dining, office and recreation uses.

The Livable Communities Advisory Committee recommends projects for funding to the Metropolitan Council, the regional planning agency serving the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area and providing essential services to the region. For 2010, the committee approved $4 million in funding for eight projects in five communities around the region.
