Hopkins Apartments (formerly Hopkins Cinema Flats) Update

The Beard Group, Inc. has informed the City of Hopkins that they have revised their plans and wish to reactivate their concept plan review application to redevelop the Hopkins Cinema 6 Theatre property located at 1118 Mainstreet. Similar to their previous proposal, the revised Hopkins Apartments (formerly Hopkins Cinema Flats) development would replace the existing theatre with a mixed use commercial and residential building. The proposed development would be 4 stories on Mainstreet (1 story of commercial and 3 stories of residential) and 5 stories on the remaining three sides (4 stories of residential apartment units on top of 1 story of enclosed parking.) There will be an additional level of parking underground.  

This new building is planned to include 130 dwelling units on the first, second, third and fourth floors, two floors of heated and secured underground parking with 136 stalls, a surface level parking lot, and a full-suite of interior and exterior amenities including a dog park, exterior patio, roof-top patio/sun deck, on-site gym, dog spa, and generous bicycle parking and storage. The first floor also provides 3,155 square feet of commercial space on Mainstreet, and is adjacent to the existing Thirty Bales restaurant. The applicant's updated plans can be found in the PDF link on the right side of this page and on the applicant's website by clicking here.

Review Process

It is important to note that the concept plan review process allows the applicant to share their plans with the public and the City of Hopkins and get feedback. The City does not either approve or deny the project at this time.  

The applicant will use the feedback provided during the concept plan review process to help inform their plans and eventually apply for formal City approvals at a future time. Public input is an important part of the concept plan review process.

Provide Feedback

The concept plan review process does not typically include a public hearing before the Planning & Zoning Commission or City Council meetings. Concept plan comments or questions should be submitted to the developer through their Hopkins Apartments (formerly Hopkins Cinema Flats) website. 

Should the developer choose to proceed with a formal application, that future process would include a public hearing.

Community members who wish to address comments to the City can do so through this online form. All comments will be compiled and presented to the City when it reviews the concept plan items at a future Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council meeting.
