Adelmann Development, Elko/New Market

Elko New Market, MN | Commercial

Overview

ISG planned and designed concepts for a new land development near the Twin Cities metro area.


Opportunity

Developers needed concepts for the new Adelmann Development to better visualize the opportunities the site would provide the region.

Solution

ISG performed a market analysis of a potential new development in Elko New Market, Minnesota, a suburban township directly south of the Twin Cities metro. The document, which is meant to serve as a baseline for development, included a demographic analysis, as well as a series of concepts depicting proposed development opportunities related to land use, environmental/natural resource and stormwater management, and transportation.

Building on these proposed elements of the development, ISG also prepared concepts for both the northern and southern parcels of the site. The first series demonstrated aerial views of the proposed layouts for highway, limited industrial, business, and medium density residential district zoning for the north and south areas. The second, which shows both areas together in a single image, showcases a 3D view of each concept combined.

Central to the planning and design of this new development was its integration of and around the adjacent heavily traveled I-35 highway. The site, which is split between a bypass across the highway, require special collaboration between ISG’s transportation and civil engineering, environmental, and landscape architecture teams to develop a plan the cohesively maximizes positive exposure for the development from the highway, while also incorporating the bypass and highway into its over site connectivity.
