The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) awarded two grants to the City of Mankato to help fund the cleanup of contaminated sites slated for redevelopment. More than $315,000 were secured by the two projects.

Projects include:

  • Corner of North Second and East Mulberry streets: Will be redeveloped into two, six-story mixed-use buildings with market-rate units and retail and office space.
  • Between Linder Avenue and Sibley Parkway: Will be redeveloped into a four-story affordable apartment building for seniors.
