Updated preliminary and final plats have been approved for townhomes at Benson West in North Mankato, near the intersection of Timm Road and Lookout Drive.

A total of six townhome buildings with 35 units are already constructed at the site, according to City Administrator John Harrenstein. 

“Some of which that are being marketed at less then 200-thousand dollars in total. They are three story’s, they’re available for workforce housing. I think it would be good to point that out as we’re talking about just different housing options that will be available in the community in general this year.”

The site was originally platted in 2013, but the developer requested the replat a majority of lots to accommodate single-family attached townhomes with more units per building. The changes allow for the construction of nine new buildings with a total of 67 units.
