Eden Prairie City Council members on Tuesday, April 20, will consider approval of a new, more modern building façade at 7076-78 Shady Oak Road to accommodate SunOpta Inc.’s new headquarters in Eden Prairie.
The company, which creates and manufactures plant-based food ingredients, has been based in Edina but will have larger Eden Prairie facilities for offices and a research and development center.
The city routinely approves building façade changes that meet city code.
The April 20 meeting includes several other notable items:
- Consideration of a lease agreement with the Tassel Transition Program that is already located in the Eden Prairie City Center but will expand its space from 2,500 to 10,000 square feet with the impending exit of the Eden Prairie School District, which has leased 51,000 square feet since 1993. The city is still seeking a tenant for the 41,000 square feet that will remain. Tassel helps adult students with disabilities prepare for independence.
- Approval of $25,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for LuAnn’s Place, a senior group home in Eden Prairie that is seeking the funds to cover the cost of building changes it made to keep residents safe from COVID-19.
