An urban ecovillage for creatives to live and work

PLACE is collaborating with the City of St. Louis Park to create a mixed-use, mixed-income, transit-oriented community demonstrating profound environmental design.

Their latest ecovillage concept proposes to offer 300 new homes-affordable and luxury-anchored by live/work suites designed for creatives. See more at
Located on Minnesota’s newest light rail line and the largest dedicated bike trail in the country, this community will offer active people multiple transportation alternatives to the car. The project will provide access to nature in a relatively urban setting, via green rooftop decks and an urban forest. The development will be powered by PLACE’s E-Generation process that makes renewable energy from organics, and grows organic food in onsite greenhouses.
