Corcoran Midtown Revival Plan

Plan Background

The Corcoran Midtown Revival Plan reflects a vision for the Corcoran neighborhood in the vicinity of the Lake Street/Midtown LRT Station. It stems from and builds upon the Hiawatha/Lake Station Area Master Plan. The Plan was adopted by the City Council on October 11th, 2002.

Corcoran Midtown Revival Plan (2002)

Future Land Use and Built Form

Recommendations from the land use map in the Corcoran Midtown Revival Plan are reflected in the Minneapolis 2040 future land use map largely through the use of mixed use commercial districts near the light rail station and along Lake Street, which also carries the Goods and Services Corridor designation. Remaining areas are placed in the Urban Neighborhood category.

The Corcoran Midtown Revival Plan does not have a parcel specific built form map, but does communicate some intended level of development intensity through the land use map. Consistent with the way other light rail stations are treated throughout the city, the greatest built form intensity is concentrated at the station itself. In this case, built form districts range in intensity from ‘Corridor 6’ to ‘Transit 20’. Areas within the influence of the station area but not directly on a corridor receive a range of designations depending on proximity to the station, including ‘Interior 2’, ‘Interior 3’, and ‘Corridor 4’.
