Sydney Hall revises plan

DinkytownâÄôs incoming resident is getting a makeover. Doran Companies redevelopment plan for Sydney Hall, located on 15th Avenue and 4th Street, was approved by a 5-2 margin by the Minneapolis Planning Commission Monday, Minneapolis Senior Planner Janelle Widmeier said. The redevelopment is in part a response to the ongoing lawsuit by Chi Psi Fraternity, commonly known as The Lodge, next door. With the redevelopment, the project will move 33 feet away from the Chi Psi property line, but Doran will replace the lost space by adding two more stories, making the development 14 stories high. âÄúIn addition to that we were willing to provide some other consideration to them, and we were hopeful that that would promote a resolution to the lawsuit that would allow that to be finalized,âÄù owner Kelly Doran said.
