Located on the former site of a Ford Motor Co. factory, the Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant redevelopment site aims to become a mixed-use zero energy district over a 15- to 20-year period. The city has developed a master plan for the space, and Ford Motor is seeking a master developer to purchase the land for redevelopment.
Key Energy Opportunities
