The Blaine City Council has identified an area near 105th Avenue, Nassau Street, and Radisson Road for future redevelopment. Discussions with the City Council has identified this area as a potential entertainment hub to capitalize on the activity at the National Sports Center and serve the entire Blaine community. The Blaine Economic Development Authority has been active in acquiring older, blighted property in an effort to revitalize the tax base and appearance in this highly visible and active area.
In 2022 the City embarked on a visioning study to identify future land uses in this area to guide redevelopment. The study was presented to the City Council in June 2022 and the master plan has been officially adopted. In December 2022, the City selected the development team of Elevage and Bader Developer to act as the master developer for the area. As a result, the master plan vision will evolve based on the development team and city’s vision for the area. Over the course of 2023, the master plan vision will be refined with development starting sometime in late 2023, early 2024.
