A major makeover could be in store for the site of a bunker-looking Macy's Furniture store on Edina's France Avenue.

Driving the news: The city's planning commission gave the project a green light last week.

By the numbers: The Macy's building would be demolished and replaced by four new ones.

  • An 11-story tower with 49 condos for seniors, 47,000 square feet of office space, and 9,500 square feet of restaurant/retail space
  • A seven-story building with 124 apartments, 20,800 square feet of office space, and 7,600 square feet of restaurant/retail space
  • A pair of seven-story buildings with 399 total apartments and 4,100 square feet of retail/restaurant space.
  • Altogether, the project includes 1,324 parking spaces.

Zoom in: 10% of the residential units would be income-restricted.

What's ahead: The developer, North Dakota-based Enclave Cos., still needs full city council approval in June.
