Hopkins is going through some monumental changes. From apartments rising in the downtown to a growing park in the Blake Road Corridor, the character of the city is changing rapidly.
With the city undergoing so much transformation, Patch invites you to take a look back into the past and see if you can remember what some of the current landmarks used to be.
Here are the answers to yesterday’s questions.
- Pizza Lucé bought the site of the old Bakers Square, which was previously a Poppin Fresh, and started serving customers in August 2010.
- Hopkins Honda has been a part has been a part of the community for more than three decades. The dealership bought the former Knox Lumber location at Fifth Street South and Excelsior Boulevard and moved there in 2005.
- Hennepin County Public Works once occupied the site where the Supervalu distribution center now sits. Since Supervalu wanted land for a new distribution center, the city negotiated a deal in which Supervalu vacated its north annex, paving the way for the Cargill Corporate campus, according to the Economic Development Association of Minnesota.
