The Lyndale Garden Center project is a unique collaboration with the City of Richfield to revitalize the eastern shoreline of Richfield Lake. The vision for the 10 acre property purchased by The Cornerstone Group is a new “town center” where residents can gather for entertainment, shopping and connecting with nature.
The Cornerstone Group has always believed strongly in their core values and the Lyndale Gardens space was a perfect chance to display them and the importance they hold for paying attention to People, Place and our Planet. Our specific areas of focus for this project are:
In order to try and satisfy as many of the above goals as possible, the project was divided into phases. The first phase was to engage with Lakewinds Co-op in the creation of a new grocery store as a pillar of the project. The next phase involved cleaning up a portion of the lakeshore and building public amenities, which included: a new bridge to connect the property to the walking paths of Richfield Lake; a terrace pavilion with a wood-fired oven, an amphitheater for performance and music, and interactive instruments for kids and adults.
The third, and current phase is the housing component of the project. Plans include 35-40 for-sale condos and townhomes near the lake and a 120 unit apartment building on Lyndale Avenue. Following this will be the final phase, which will bring in a 5,000+ retail building that will provide opportunities for locally owned businesses.
