University Avenue District is a 370-acre area of underdeveloped land extending from the University of Minnesota (UofM) campus in Minneapolis to Saint Paul. The District is unique because of central location, adjacency to UofM athletic and bio-discovery facilities, and mass transit. Major redevelopment is creating opportunities for this area with planning being led by a diverse partnership that includes the UofM (building design experts, the UofM foundation, facilities representatives, and other facets of the University), city and county officials, community groups, non-profit and for-profit building developers, and local businesses.
Ever-Green Energy has proposed a showcase for smart and sustainable community energy systems, which starts with a low-temperature district energy system, using recovered energy from local wastewater as its primary source. This presentation provides an overview of the project.
