The Lakeshore Family Townhomes project in Eagan recently received a grant from the Metropolitan Council.
The Metropolitan Council awarded Lakeshore Family Townhomes with a $200,000 grant toward the construction of a 50-unit townhome development, targeted to families with children.
"Plans for the complex include three one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedroom units and 25 three-bedroom units, along with gazebo and a toddler playground area," according to Sun Thisweek.
The grant was part of the nearly $5.4 million in Livable Communities Funds the Metropolitan Council awarded to projects in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Eagan, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Richfield and Robbinsdale. The council approved $3.9 million toward transit-oriented development and $1.5 million toward affordable housing.
