Apartment proposal for Totino's site advances


CENTRAL AVENUE — A proposal to redevelop the former Totino’s restaurant site into a new seven-story apartment building has cleared the Minneapolis Planning Commission.

The development will be called Red 20. It will be a u-shaped building at 514 1st Ave. NE and 519 Central Ave. NE featuring 130 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space.

Minneapolis-based Schafer Richardson is developing the project.

Totino’s — made famous by its frozen pizzas — closed in 2007 after 50 years of business in the neighborhood.
