The former Uptown Arby's is becoming, you guessed it, apartments

No surprises there.

With Uptown becoming increasingly flooded with new apartment complexes, it should come as little surprise about what's replacing the late Uptown Arby's.

The chain restaurant and its iconic neon sign closed down in January, prompting a rather over-the-top outpouring of grief from diners, some of whom even held a candlelit vigil outside the venue.

More details were revealed this week in submissions to the City of Minneapolis about what will be going in place of the Arby's spot.

Plans submitted by Reuter Walton reveal the company wants to put a 174-unit apartment complex on the site, complete with 4,000 square foot of ground floor commercial space on the corner of West Lake Street and Dupont Avenue South.

The six-story building would also come with two levels of underground parking providing more than 150 spaces for residents.

Reuter Walton has had a hand in several apartment developments that have been springing up in the Uptown neighborhood in recent years.

The company was behind the Revel luxury apartment building anchored by the small-format Target on Lagoon Avenue.

It also built the Laguna boutique apartment complex, which can also be found on Lagoon Avenue close to Bde Maka Ska.
