New data center coming to Chaska

Finance & Commerce Magazine reports that Dallas-based Stream Data Centers has signed a contract with M.A. Mortenson & Co. to build a new data center in the West Creek Corporate Center.  Plans for the data center were approved at last week’s Planning Commission meeting.

This would be Stream first foray into the northern part of the country.  Currently, its northern-most data center is located in Denver.



McDonald’s to Hazeltine Plaza

On Wednesday, the Chaska Planning Commission will be hearing an application from McDonald’s to build a new location in the Hazeltine Plaza development.  Hazeltine Plaza is the development at the corner of MN-41 and Hazeltine Boulevard, where Kohl’s Department Store is currently the only tenant.

The area highlighted in red below is the area in which the McDonald’s is being proposed.

Chaska Updates: SWCHS and the Downtown Business Alliance

The next week is an important one for the proposed new location of Southwest Christian High School on the Francis Hammers farm property on Bavaria Road. 

Tonight, the site plan will be reviewed by the Park Board, which has to recommend to the city whether to accept a piece of land in the southeast corner of the property as fulfillment of the parkland dedication requirements or whether to instead ask for a cash payment. 

Wednesday, the Planning Commission will review the site plan and make a recommendation to the City Council as to whether or not the site plan should be approved.  The City Council could then take action on the development at next Monday’s meeting.

In other news, the Chaska Herald reports on the creation of the Downtown Business Alliance, which is a group of downtown Chaska businesses that have broken off from the Southwest Metro Chamber of Commerce in order to ensure a tight focus on downtown Chaska’s issues and opportunities.  The group of businesses in the alliance have been vital in the development of the Downtown Master Plan and will be just as vital in the nuts-and-bolts of implementing it.
