Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

A major downtown development project gets the green light during Monday night's Rochester City Council meeting.

Urban on 1st calls for the construction of a six-story mixed-use building that includes 156 apartment units and 9,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space. The site is at the parking lot between 1st Avenue Southwest and South Broadway,  south of U.S. Bank.

Monday night, the Rochester City Council approved the incentive development final plan, which means the developer can move forward with the permitting process and begin construction.
