LAI-MN Upcoming Events

The East Gateway Redevelopment Project 
with Pat Mascia of UMFREA
on Zoom | Thursday, Oct. 7, 2021 | 4 to 5:15 p.m.

The East Gateway Project area is an assembly of roughly 15 acres (three blocks) on the eastern edge of the U of M campus, bounded by University Ave., Huron Blvd., Oak St. and Washington Ave. (northern two blocks) and roughly by Washington Ave., Ontario St., Delaware St. and Huron Blvd. (southern block). UMFREA owns or controls most of the properties on these blocks and intends to redevelop them in multiple phases over the next 20 years.

Join Pat Mascia, managing director of the University of Minnesota Foundation Real Estate Advisors (UMFREA). UMFREA is the real estate investment and development subsidiary of the University of Minnesota Foundation. You’ll learn who they are, how they came into being, as well as their relationship with the U of MN, generally and with respect to this project. Pat will provide background on the project, the vision and conceptual plans for the project, its development timeline, as well as the legal and financial structure for this project.
