After in mid-October 2011, it looks as if will be set to go for its first tenants Nov. 1, 2012.

Lyndale Plaza is taking the place of the strip mall, located directly across the street from the on Lyndale Avenue.

According to Christine Tsang, an account executive with Henry Schafer (the public relations firm handling the development), tenant applications are now being taken for a Nov. 1 move-in date.

In addition, for those interested in checking out what a prospective apartment home will look like, a model opened Aug. 1.

, developers said the complex will feature underground parking, as well as high ceilings, large windows and fine finishes. Once the site is completed, developers also said the streetscape will be pedestrian friendly and have plenty of greenspace. The 94-unit apartment complex will be a mix of market rate and affordable units.

Hours for viewing the model unit are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 1-5 p.m. Sundays, with the unit closed on Mondays. The entrance to the unit is on the southeast corner of Lyndale and 64th Street. The leasing office is under the covered archway.

Building doesn't seem to have the best relationship to the street -- that triangle-shaped lawn just makes it feel like it doesn't "fit". But this is a big improvement over Wood Lake Plaza, and I'm glad to see car parking going underground. It's more secure and comfortable for the car owners, and much more aesthetic for the community.

Hi there Sean. I agree the layout is quite different. The developer received a transit grant to help with pedestrians and those taking the bus, since it's a major commuter line. This could've had something to do with the design. I should also mention that there will be above ground parking as well, but it is at the back of the building and there should be more greenspace back there, too.

Yeah I noticed that in the plans -- looks like a small lot for guest parking. Still, it's not visible from Lyndale and seems appropriately modest.

Yep. Exactly. I think some of it is meant for tenant parking, but that's neither here nor there. It will definitely improve the area. And ... Lyndale Garden Center will follow shortly!

I realize that this is still under construction but the siding they are puttung up looks really cheap and does not look as nice as the renderings. Hopefully it looks better once completed. I do agree though that this still an improvement over the strip mall!

I'll have to go check it out. I haven't been over that way recently. Looks like when it's all finished I'll need to poll readers on what they think!

I see they have a model open too. I will have to go in andd check it out!
